Listener week: Rubbish friends, Adult orphans, 170 years of family recipes
We speak to two listeners about the experience of becoming adult orphans, and we hear from a group of friends who pick litter together.
The death of your parents is never easy, however old you are. Lucy Humphries wrote to us about the experience of becoming an adult orphan. She joins Jenni along with her sister Sarah and the psychotherapist Julia Samuel, a specialist in grief and a vice-chair of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
