On this episode....
The 4 Calling Birds (Hayley, Meredith, Natalie & Steven) are chatting about grief and trying to break down the taboo of discussing death. We thought we would start the new year on a light note....
Join Steven Carter Bailey as he chats to friend of the podcast, Sarah Nicholson. You might remember Sarah from our Adoption Stories episodes. They are well worth going back to listen to if you missed them.
The topic of conversation between Steven and Sarah - Grief and how discussing it might just make something so sad and consuming a little bit more bearable.
Steven then joins the rest of the birds in our Cloud Studio to discuss the interview and to chat about their own experiences of grief.

The 4 Calling Birds (Hayley, Meredith, Natalie & Steven) are chatting all things Tarot. Hayley Clapham is joined by Tarot Reader Anna Johnston where Hayley has her Tarot Cards read. Don 't be a cynic and immediately think of Jane Seymour in Live & Let Die as that was a movie and this is real.
After the interview, Hayley then joins the rest of The Birds back in the studio to discuss her Tarot Reading, how the experience was for her and what the Birds thought of the interview. Natalie Spence also shares her own Tarot Reading experiences. It's a great episode that I think you'll love. I can see it in the cards.....
And of course, there's also the usual "Would You Rather" Questions set by Jeremy the Producer.
