Sweet

Thankful to have found this delightful podcast.

The perfect podcast to unwind with after a long day.

I often listen to more business related podcasts and so Return of the Birds has been a breath of fresh air when I want to just relax and find a reprieve from all the busyness. I don’t even particularly care about birds and have found this story to be quite captivating. Peter is a natural storyteller and is a joy to listen to. I especially love how he’s weaved authentic bird calls into the audio while reading to reflect the story.
