Hard Times & Hope: Trailer

Jule Kucera

Hi, how are you? 

Fine?

That's what we say, isn't it? And a lot of the time, it's true. But sometimes it's not. Hard Times & Hope is a place where I have real conversations with regular people about our real hard time. We talk about what it was…

Rob

My hard time is when my dad became ill when I was 14 years old. And he was given probably a few weeks to live.

Jule Kucera

How they got through it…

Bethan

In fact, when I was really unwell I realized I needed to focus on joy. And I started taking down little notes of one joy that happened to me each day.

Jule Kucera

And something good that came from it…

Katie

I mean, this isn't even that warm and fuzzy, but just being the type of person who figures stuff out.

Jule Kucera

If you're feeling like you're alone with your hard time, you're not. Everybody has a story that matters and there's reason to have hope. I think of hope as a dried-up seedpod on a poppy. A poppy seed pod looks like junk, like nature's garbage. But inside are hundreds of tiny black seeds, waiting to bloom into something beautiful. I'm Jule Kucera your host.
