S3 E21: On Grief with Flora Baker // Flora the Explorer

S3 E21: On Grief with Flora Baker // Flora the Explorer

In this week’s episode, I chat with Flora Baker (aka Flora the Explorer) about our individual experiences of grief,  the surprising benefits it offered, and how to support someone who is grieving.

We talked about:

  • Why Flora doesn’t “write for SEO” – and the pros and cons of this approach for her
  • Transitioning from writing about travel to writing about mental health when her dad died
  • Griefcast
  • The benefits of being more open in talking about mental health and therapy
  • What it’s been like for both of us to transition away from travel blogging
  • The mental health impacts of travelling
  • Writing for the joy of writing
  • Dealing with grief and supporting someone who is grieving (here’s Flora’s post about how she details with grief)
  • Nick Caves letter on grief
  • The surprising benefits of grief

And more. Listen here or on Apple PodcastsSpotify or anywhere you usually get your podcasts.You can find me on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest @lucylucraft or on my blog: lucylucraft.com.
