My favourite podcast

Off track is a balm to my country brain stuck in inner city Melbourne lockdown. I have been listening for years, but appreciate it so much more now.
Ann and her guests take me away from the city, into the bush and desert and ocean - learning about nature and science and culture.
Nature tracks - the soundscapes of different locations - are lifesavers when I’m getting stressed.
Keep up the great work team!

all gasps and giggles

Wow! What a great podcast. Eels, crocs, rescues! All gasps and giggles from this new listener. I wish I’d found this show at the beginning of lockdown. Great backing tracks as well.

Loving the new Nature Track soundscapes

I’ve loved listening to Off Track for several years now, it’s like my podcast ‘happy place’!
More recently I can’t get enough of the new ‘Nature Track’ soundscapes, I use them as a relaxing background sound while I work, and also for winding down at night. Highly recommend! 🐸🍃☀️🐝🌻🦆
