About the show

Most people, at some point in their life, will be touched by suicide. So why are we still so afraid to talk about it honestly?


The Suicide Chronicles is a fearless inquiry into the deepest corners of suicidal thinking. This podcast challenges the way we talk and think about suicide, from the perspectives of people who’ve survived suicide attempts, people bereaved by it, and people who work in suicide prevention.

Some of this terrain is uncomfortable, and has been navigated carefully, with nuance and sensitivity. There’s a lot of trust involved in these interviews, whose subjects have been unfailingly generous.


Survivors know how much this conversation matters.
