Widows Mentoring Widows Podcast Launches On WYSO

Three years ago, WYSO Podcasting 101 graduate, Patti G. suddenly became a widow, and soon other women who had lost their spouses came forward to share what they had learned about widowhood and offer friendship. This week we talked to Patti about her podcast, This is Gonna Hurt: Widows Mentoring Widows, which debuted just about two weeks ago to some pretty good response.  In this WYSO Weekend excerpt, Patti tells us how she talks to other widows about their experiences in the hopes of sharing stories, solidarity and advice with other women.

 

 

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
