About Us

Processing is a new podcast from Heritage Radio Network that explores the intersection of food and grief. Each week hosts Bobbie Comforto and Zahra Tangorra are joined by a special guest who shares their personal experience with loss, grief, and heartbreak, and how food factored into their journey.Change and loss are inevitable in all our lives. The relationships that we as humans have surrounding food and loss are universal and relatable across different cultures, beliefs, and lifestyles. It is our individual adaptation to the things we cannot control that makes us unique. Processing will expose and digest these commonalities and differences in each episode.

Laura Madaio- "Chopping Vegetables"

On this week's show we welcome Laura Madaio. Laura is the founder of Grief Hungry, an Instagram handle, and soon to be website that offers recipe sharing for the grief community. In the summer of 2018, Laura suddenly and tragically lost her beloved father, John, in terrible accident. John was as Laura describes, the cornerstone of their tight knit family, and his sudden passing left a lot to be processed and untangled. In the wake of his death, Laura became an advocate for bereavement leave in the workplace. She also started @griefhungry to combine her love of food and cooking with her traumatic loss. We hope you enjoy this beautiful conversation as much as we did, and please follow Laura @griefhungry on Instagram, and share and connect with her via email at griefhungry@gmail.com.

Millicent Souris- "Souris' Saloon"

On this week's episode we welcome the wonderful and wise Millicent Souris. Millicent is the Rescue Food Coordinator at the largest emergency food provider in Brooklyn, called. St. John’s Bread & Life. We talk about growing up in her family's bar, the death of her father and handling grief as a young person just starting their adult life.

Please note, this episode was recorded on the first day of protests for the murder of George Flyod in New York City. We feel it necessary to mention this, as we do not discuss the protests or the incredibly important Black Lives Matter movement that is currently happening throughout the country. We stand with the protesters and people on the front lines of this movement. We are getting involved however we can, and urge you to do the same.
