We produce audio and video podcasts for the self powered outdoor enthusiast in the UK and World-Wide who wants to find out more about getting the maximum pleasure from simple outdoor lifestyles.
Our range of material dips into many aspects. We talk to others and discuss their trips big and small, we discuss and review gear, we link associated skills and interests all with the aim to inspire, inform, entertain and encourage listeners to enjoy the natural world around them.
The podcasts are primarily UK based and aimed at walkers, backpackers, bushcrafters, cyclists, paddlers, travelers, equestrian users in fact anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of anything associated with self powered travel and the environment.
Our range of podcasts cover the simple pleasures of walking in the countryside, over the hills and far, far away.
This might mean backpacking or hiking to some. It may also mean camping out and spending a few nights under the stars. You could be a kayaker, a bushcrafter or even a cycle tourer. No matter all outdoors people we have met through the years share a love, passion and appreciation for the outdoors which incorporate an interest in nature, associated skills and outdoor craft.
We have interviewed people who have cycled around the world, world travelers, adventure racers, hill walkers, long and short distance hikers, people who have undertaken Lejog, paddlers and those interested in the simplicity of Bushcraft. We also visit the many trade shows in Europe and UK and discuss new materials, products and items we feel of interest to our world-wide audience. Outdoor brands, publishers, famous writers are all within our podcast portfolio and with almost 400 to choose from there’s more than enough to pass away rainy days.
