GBA Replayed - GBA 19 And 43 Louise
5 days ago
It's another episode of GBA Replayed which showcases some of the conversations recorded in the early years of Getting Better Acquainted.
In GBA 19 and GBA 43 we get better acquainted with Louise. We compare childhoods and confidence levels and talk about the death of Louise's stepdad and how his life and death have influenced her. We move out from there into a broader conversation about the death of people you love. Which makes it all sound very heavy, but there is plenty of light and warmth in this conversation.
