My go to

What I love about these podcasts is the variety. Adventure is subjective so I love hearing the diverse ways people embrace that. Matt remains focused on the person in question, unlike so many other interviewers who can’t help but shimmy in the spotlight. It’s my go to because I find it so inspiring during my dry spells of adventure while “conforming”. While others remain exploring, it makes me know there is still a big unseen world out there. So despite it not being me, I still can’t wait to hear all about it!

Matt really listens

Wow, just wow. I am not an explorer, climber or what one might call an adventurer AND I love these podcasts more than anything else out there. Matt Pycroft, the host, really listens to his guests, who are always fascinating and he makes them more so by encouraging them to open up and allows the conversation to take it’s own path. Listening is a very rare skill, in doing so he gives every listener the permission to really listen too. I am hooked. I get so much from every podcast, it matters not one bit that I am not immediately or obviously connected to adventure, every conversation he has brings me something.
In addition I find them calming and reassuring and hopeful too.

You will not regret listening, I absolutely promise.

I discovered these podcasts because I am a cold water swimmer at Tooting Bec Lido, as a result of that I discovered Gilly McArthur and follow her on Instagram, a very inspiring woman. She was interviewed by Matt, I recommend listening to that one and many many more.

Inspiring in the most calming way!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while now and with lots going on in life it is an hour or so of escaping and inspiring me into all sorts, after listening my brain is generally buzzing with ideas and plans for things that’s for sure!
The calming laid back interview type approach Matt has is just perfect for the type of people he interviews as you can literally hear people and a lot of the time Matt actually in real time having to think hard about there actual view on the said discussion!

Please keep it all up and maybe one day I’d have done something inspiring or mad to be on it 😂

Cheers.
