Have you ever mourned the loss of a fictional character? It can be tough to get over, and difficult to convince people who are not caught up in that fictional world that your sense of mourning is valid. I talk with Tim Burke, Dawn Fancher, Maria Clara Santarosa, Megan Knox, Stephanie Billman, Leigh Foster, Daniel Skorka about how they've grieved the loss of their favorite fictional characters from video games, novels, TV shows and movies. Plus Professor Jennifer Barnes explains the psychology behind feeling an emotional connection to make believe people.
