How are you? Nora McInerny wants to know the truth. As the creator and host of the podcasts “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” & “It’s Going To Be OK," and the TED speaker known for her viral talk, “We Don’t Move On From Grief, We Move Forward With It,” Nora McInerny specializes in making space for emotional honesty and difficult conversations. From her bestselling memoirs and essay collections to her pieces in The New York Times, TIME magazine and The Washington Post, Nora’s work regularly touches on topics many would rather not discuss — death, loss, illness, mental health, trauma and change — with disarming wit and earnest candor.
Drawing on her personal experiences with grief — Nora lost her husband, second pregnancy and father within a few weeks of each other — and her years of interviewing people who have lived through their own terrible experiences, Nora’s unforgettable talks inspire audiences to face and conquer any obstacle — with the strength that comes from knowing that we are not alone.
