Hello! My name’s Georgia Coan.
I’m a journalist, producer, and writer from Bedfordshire, England.
I work as a producer for the BBC News podcast ‘The Next Episode’. I previously worked on Radio 4’s ‘Beyond Today’ podcast, reporting and presenting episodes about mental health, grief, and extremism.
I set up my blog in 2014 after struggling with my mental health which was triggered by the death of my younger brother Elliot who died suddenly in 2013.
Writing has become an outlet for me, helping me express my emotions and share my experience during difficult times in my journey with grief.
I’ll be talking about grief, mental health and my experiences as a working-class journalist on this blog. I’m happy to take requests so please email me if you have any suggestions.
