Goodbye to All This
Critic Rating: 5.0/5
“I still love him and I miss him.” Losing the thing you are most sure of and coming out the other side - a story about life, love and loss. A 12-part memoir by Sophie Townsend.
Thomas Adam Curry - Another Mag - Feb 2, 2021
"Goodbye To All This is not a cheery listen. Across its 12 episodes, the host, writer and producer, Sophie Townsend (co-produced with Short Cuts’ Eleanor McDowall) beautifully navigates the death of her husband, learns how to cope with his loss and reconciles herself to raising their two children alone. I can’t recommend it highly enough."
Neroli Price - Daily Maverick - Dec 11, 2020
"This is a painfully sad story, but it’s one that models the messiness of vulnerability and resilience – something that all of us can relate to. It’s telling is a generous offering by some of the finest audio storytellers of our time. It gifts us the space to begin processing the losses of this year. “Goodbye to All This” is as apt a phrase as any to bid farewell to an unimaginable 2020."
