We are excited for A Touch More Live to be a place for exciting, honest conversations with compelling guests.”

The two former stars started the podcast during the pandemic on Instagram Live and founded A Touch More production company to produce it. The rebooted podcast will be co-distributed by TOGETHXR, a media company co-founded by Bird.
