- Nora explains her philosophy of being a life coach, just through the lens of death.
- We discuss how people have a tendency to limit and compartmentalize their grief because of the way that it's handled in society.

2020 has been a really challenging year for a lot of people And for anybody who is dealing with the loss of a loved one around the holiday season, this is a great episode to find validation and support for your grief.
