The Bird Brain Podcast
The goal is to be more like our bird friends, elevated with a different and lighter perspective. Join me on this weekly “check in", and gain more of a "birds eye view" of common situations, circumstances, thoughts, feelings that keep us up at night, but also keep us from being present in our daily lives and relationships. And you don't have to worry about a God complex here, we reflect on real life; Meeting up with a good friend just to chat. I’ll have some special guests sit with me to talk about their journeys and why I consider them “humming birds” in my life. Be prepared to laugh and maybe feel more, but most importantly be prepared to grow. But there’s more to this podcast, a plot twist if you will. Tune in Friday nights for the special segment "Night Owl” featuring horror stories fact and fiction.
