Rank #1: The Falcons of Melbourne
Our first episode back after lockdown! We recorded this a few weeks ago, when we could first see each other again. What started off as a discussion about the Peregrine Falcons of Melbourne, turned into something a lot deeper. Listen in as Nan gets real about death and dying and what she thinks is the secret behind a long, happy life.
We hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing holiday season however you chose to celebrate.
See you in 2021!

Rank #2: Mio & Bernio - Teaser
We took a little break from recording as the next story Nan has to share is quite long. So long in fact, we are going to split it over two episodes. This is a little teaser to introduce you to Mio, Nan's husband.
Thanks for coming on this trip down memory lane with us. It's so important to preserve family memories and this is proving to be such a good way of doing that. Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform so you don't miss an episode.

Rank #7: Introducing Nan
In our first ever podcast, you will be introduced to Bernie, my 90 year old Nan. 45 minutes is not enough time to capture all of the stories she has to share, so this is merely a starting point. For many years I have wanted to document our family history, from the point of view of my grandmother. She loves a chat and is very curious about the lives of others, so what better platform than a podcast.
Join us as we travel across Melbourne and through time, reliving significant events in Bernie's life.
