Our mind and body can be transformed through the simple act of walking. That’s why Dr Alex George has made this new, ambient podcast.
It supports his mission to get us all out stomping, so whether you’re taking the dog out, hiking up a mountain or maybe you simply need some fresh air, Dr Alex and his guests will be here every week as your loyal stomping companions.
In every episode, you’ll hear Dr Alex George out on a stomp with an exciting guest, in a location of their choice, to take a meander into their lives.
You’ll wind through uplifting and thought-provoking conversations with a soothing backdrop of birdsong, crashing waves or the breeze gently rustling through leaves.
Each episode is split into three parts, designed to be listened to on three short stomps, or one long one.
So put on your headphones, follow @thestompcast and join us on a good old stomp.
