Richard Coles: The Madness Of Grief

In 2019 Richard Coles, vicar and co-presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, lost his husband and partner of 12 years, following a long battle with alcohol addiction. For three months after David’s death, Richard did nothing except ‘let grief happen’. Much about grief surprised him: things like the volume of ‘sadmin’ you have to do when someone dies. With wit and honesty, Richard explores the tragedy – and unexpected comedy – of bereavement. He talks to comedian and podcaster Adam Buxton about the complexity of living with loss and how to contemplate a new future.
