    Season Two Review!

    Season Two Review!

    With restrictions being lifted allowing us to travel anywhere within our counties myself and the team have decided to take a break from the podcast. I’m planning on spending a lot more time in the hills over the next few weeks and months and I hope you are going to dust off your boots and get back there too! I really loved making the podcast and I plan on coming back with another season later in the year! 
    Don’t forget this month we are giving one of our listeners a summit jacket worth €150. To be in the running, all you have to do is sign up to our mailing list at www.earths-edge.com/podcast.
