It’s so good to hear you
In what feels like week 600497 of lockdown, Charlotte listens to more of your voices from across the world, hears how you're coping and how you're using the outdoors to aid your sanity. Ranging from the Netherlands to Sheffield, it's a lovely listen.
Recorded on 27th April 2020.
Send me more things! Please and thank you.
I'm making another show of YOUR voices! Send me your voice notes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's hear how each other are and what you're still able to do or what you're missing about the outdoors. Don't be shy now.
Hello out there!
In this episode we hear the voices of many listeners about what they're doing in nature during these times of great change and uncertainty, and the comfort that can bring. From folk in the UK to Sydney, we're all reacting a little differently.
Please send in yours! To email@example.com. Say your name, where you are and the date. Lets stay connected.
I NEED YOUR HELP!
Hello! I've made this little podcast extra because I need your help! I'm putting together a series of voice clips from YOU. What are you doing to connect with nature in these more isolated times? Take me with you. Use the voice memo function on your phone and email me the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Start with your name and where you are in the world. Let me hear what you can hear, are you walking the dog? On the allotment? Listening to the birds? Tell me about it! 1 - 2 minute clips. It'll all get put together for the next show. I look forward to hearing you... stay well xx

Something for everyone
This podcast takes you on journey through so many subjects; some you know a bit about, some you heard a bit about and a whole bunch that is stuff I need to hear more about!!!
Hearing the people explain what they do while they're doing it and loving their subject is what I love most.
