What if you could combine your passions into your dream outdoors job?
My guest in this episode, BBC radio presenter Matthew Bannister, has done just that.
Late on in his broadcasting career, Matthew has managed to merge his love for walking, the outdoors and folk music into his work. The result is his podcast, Folk on Foot.
Matthew has been on walks all over the UK for the podcast, from Sandwood Bay in northwestern Scotland to Port Isaac in Cornwall and he’s had some spine-tingling encounters with wildlife during some of his recordings.
Why did Matthew want to move his work outdoors? How did he did it? And why has walking been so important to him throughout difficult periods of his life?
I hope you enjoy this episode and Matthew’s story. Listen out for his tips for getting outdoors more at the end of the podcast, as well as the relaxing minute of sounds from nature, recorded by some of you, the listeners!
If would be fantastic if you could rate, review and subscribe to the podcast – it really helps other people discover it – and please feel free to spread the word to your family and friends!
