No Feeling Is Final

Usually when we talk about suicide we say those four magic words: "Just ask for help." But Honor Eastly knows it’s not that simple.

Usually when we talk about suicide we say those four magic words: "Just ask for help." But Honor Eastly knows it’s not that simple. She’s been there and back, and now has years of phone recordings and diary entries, from the inside. These recordings form the basis of this podcast, No Feeling Is Final , a show for anyone who’s ever wondered if life is worth living. And for anyone trying to better understand their friend, partner, or kid, who’s wrestled with these feelings themselves. At times heartbreaking and desperate but also darkly funny and charming, No Feeling Is Final is a story of difference, identity, and why we should stay alive.

No Feeling Is Final was written by Honor Eastly, with executive producer Joel Werner, producer Alice Moldovan, writer Graham Panther, and sound engineer Russell Stapleton. Created at ABC Audio Studios under the guidance of Managing Editor, Kellie Riordan.
