Laura’s Best Bird EVER! ™ series

Publication Date: June 25, 2018

Each of these blog posts is a transcript of a For the Birds podcast/radio program, though the blog post is often longer and more fleshed out due to time constraints for many radio stations that carry the program. Laura sometimes edits the blog posts to improve them. She’s been using these stories as part of keynote speeches titled Laura’s Best Bird EVER! I went looking for birds, and found joy, love, redemption, and more. She hopes to ultimately put a hundred or so of these stories into a book.
