This is an epic moment for us as we pass the 9 million download figure for the podcast we started way back in 2005. It is about time we shouted about our epic success from the hill tops as no other independently produced outdoors Podcast has been around for this number of years, nor reached these dizzy heights.
Although there are many newcomers on the Podcast and Social Media scene all scrambling to gain a foothold in the ever busy ‘independent’ market place, they all have much to do to gain the audience engagement and reach we have achieved.
It isn’t often we promote these figures, after all they are probably meaningless to many listeners who just want free entertainment. However for those listening in the outdoors world who wish to reach this audience, interact with them and share their passion, this is a massive world-wide achievement.
Please join us in celebrating this news in whatever way you can. I want to world to know what we have achieved with our listeners and the more commercial involvement we get, the better the long term content you’ll receive. Find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
This is the third and final part of the series recorded at the Adventure Travel Show and we spend our time with Kev Reynolds discussing 3 recent book projects in more detail.
Kev describes himself as the man with the world’s best job, earning a modest crust by writing and lecturing about some of the most scenically spectacular places on earth; spending many weeks each year with camera, notebook and tape recorder wandering among mountains straight out of dreams.
Someone once said that all who love the wild places are incurable dreamers.
Should your dreams include mountains of the Alps, Pyrenees or the high Himalaya – or perhaps the more modest landscapes of southern England – maybe through Kevs guidebooks (or lectures) he can help you turn those dreams into your own personal reality.
In partnership with Cicerone Press, Kev has produced more than two dozen guidebooks for walkers and trekkers. Guides that indicate the where, the why and the how to make the most of your outdoor holiday, whether that be in various corners of Europe, or in Nepal.
