    4 Calling Birds - Season 2 Episode 6 - Grief with Sarah Nicholson

    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.
