The pain he feels after losing his mother to pancreatic cancer is “indescribable,” and now a year after her death Kyle McMahon is hoping to be a resource for those like him by providing an outlet for grief and mourning.

In his new podcast, Death, Grief & Other Sh*t We Don't Discuss, McMahon addresses the stigma of discussing and dealing with the overwhelming emotions of losing someone close. In the aftermath of his own personal tragedy, the host began looking for others like himself who were dealing with the death of a loved one, but his search turned up few results.

“As I looked for resources to help me get through, and to find others talking about what they were going through, I found that the options were rather limited,” said McMahon.

The radio personality wants this series to be the show he was looking for after his mom’s diagnosis, her battle with cancer, and in the wake of her death. The unbearable emotions he dealt with is something every person will eventually have to face, yet it seems to be a subject no one wants to talk about.

“I have to talk about it, I have to process this,” said McMahon. “I have so many questions I need answers to, and I want you to join me on this quest.”

McMahon is taking the discussion on the road, traveling around the country to talk to the world’s leading experts on death and the stages of grief. The host hopes to take the first step of healing with his audience as the show progresses.
