There are many podcast producers around the internet as iTunes library will testify, however they are very few of them who offer quality, well produced and quite frankly, listenable content which add much to our audible pleasure both in content and style.
However I am making it my mission to find other producers of outdoor material who do match the broadcast quality we work to. Both in the UK and around the world and this is my compiled list so far.
If you have any suggestion to others which you think our listeners would enjoy, please use the contact us page and let us know.
“Every episode of the Tough Girl Podcast is full of inspiring stories of women overcoming great challenges.”
Sarah Williams is the UK host to this fascinating series of interviews with women all of whom have achieved inspirational challenges or adventures. She herself has completed the Marathon Des Sables and so manages to cover most aspects of general interest as well from a female specific viewpoint. Everything from the mental to the physical and aims the podcast specifically at women who need inspiring that they can, indeed, ‘do’.
“Listen to in-depth interviews twice a week from adventure sports enthusiasts around the globe. You’ll hear from outfitters, guides, instructors, authors and many more who live their lives to the fullest. Not only will you enjoy shows about your favorite adventure sports, but you’ll also discover activities you may decide to try as well. Come learn about amazing people and how their organizations provide incredible benefits to society.”
Curt Linville hosts this show in the US and is an experienced outdoors person with a passion and love for the great outdoors, who shares his stories and interviews with those with same vision. An enjoyable and varied range of content which will keep you entertained for hours.
Christopher Sleight of Mountain is a BBC journalist and, to be honest, I wouldn’t expect anything less than perfection when listening to his story based podcasts. And they are perfect both in structure and delivery. Of course one could argue as he works for the BBC, he has access to the gear, the people and the software to produce such masterpieces. But the true joy is the story content itself. It is easy to forget the technical and drift away into each mini adventure or interview he conducts as each audioscape is so rich.
As you’ll hear a lot goes into each production however I’m sure you’ll enjoy ever single one on his playlist. My favourite so far is episode 5 The Angel of Camasunary. See what you think.
Hayden Lee of Travel Stories Podcast is another passionate story teller, who manages to get every interviewee to tell a story in their own words which he edits, adds sound effects and music, to bring the moment alive.
Each story is vastly different and highly entertaining.
Hayden also has energy and enthusiasm but sadly refers to my traveling history as ‘old school’. In fact the ‘old’ word appeared far too often during our chat and for the first time I started to feel like I was a dusty old history book talking with a hip new iPhone 7! He didn’t mean anything by it though. Well I think so anyway!
So once again do dive into his back catalogue, there’s plenty there to keep you entertained over Xmas.
