Episode notes

In the latest episode of Grief Kind, Clover Stroud and fashion and textiles designer Pearl Lowe delve into Pearl’s experience of grief after her dad Eddie died of a heart attack, shortly after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

Along with memories of her father - from encounters with Dame Barbara Windsor to his days as a mascot for The Krays - Pearl discusses the huge void Eddie left behind and how she navigated grief with the support of her husband, Supergrass drummer, Danny Goffey.

Pearl recalls the numbness which followed Eddie’s sudden death, and why, when grieving all she really wanted was for people to “bother” her.
