    59. Helen Todd. 20 years of Scotland's "Right to Roam"

    59. Helen Todd. 20 years of Scotland's "Right to Roam"

    In February 2023 Scotland will mark twenty years of Land Reform legislation that gave a Right of Responsible Access to the countryside.  Yet challenges remain with some confusion about what's allowed and a reduction in the number of staff who had been appointed to upload access rights.  There's also a challenge of equality of access, to widen the number of people taking physical activity in open spaces.   Helen Todd, the campaigns and policy manager at Ramblers Scotland, guides us on the way ahead.

    58. Cory Jones. Canoeing Canadian Wilderness

    58. Cory Jones. Canoeing Canadian Wilderness

    In the summer of 2022, Cory Jones led a group of six paddlers through the Yukon territory in Canada.  Their group of six covered 1000 miles, through two time zones and six river systems.  However, the adventure wasn't exactly harmonious eventually splitting into two groups.  Age was the dividing line.

    This generational divide was echoed among communities of First Nation people they met along the rivers.  As well as describing a tough adventure, Cory speaks frankly about all these differences and the impact climate change has already brought to their environment and way of life.

Brilliant Adventure based podcast

Lots of different subjects covers...always interesting

Woke nonsense

Used to be good, stopped listening when the presenter talking about Scottish access was itching to tell everyone it was his white privileged middle class male background that made him think he had a right to go anywhere. Yawn, unsubscribed and in the bin

PaddleJim ,

Some great stories

Amazing adventures, told by fascinating people in a well produced podcast. But please please stop interupting them when they are telling their stories.
