Around the Fire: Past Episodes

We all have a story to share. Will you join us?

Airing time: Your choice, on-demand



Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time - the ancient art of sharing our experiences and wisdom with others.  Stories can inspire, motivate, educate and comfort.  Hearing of other people’s challenges can help us realise that we are not alone in the world.

Host Liz Fry feels that, in this digital world, now more than ever, the sharing of stories is vital.  Liz is a Life Coach and incredibly passionate about people's mental health and wellbeing.  She understands the power of walking our own journey and then sharing it with others who may be on the same journey or know of someone who is.

We look forward to sharing some of these stories Around the Fire, just as our ancestors did.
