Weird Walk is an audio ramble through the history and mysteries of the British Isles. Enlisting the help of Charlie Cooper (writer, actor, BAFTA winner) we explore the age-old trails, sacred sites and shared folklore of this strange place we call home.
In our hectic hyper-networked 21st century world it’s all too easy to lose touch with the myths and rituals that once connected us to this land. Come with us on our quest as we walk the ancient trackways and engage with the revenants of our history, in the hope we can find a pathway that bypasses nostalgia and reconnects us to the seasons and to nature, setting a course towards optimism, re-enchantment, and brighter futures.

Interesting podcast

Nice one Charlie. Strangely enough I was delivering something in Lewes when you mentioned it on here. Definitely going to follow this one.

Wonderful

Only one episode in and already hooked.
A gentle, informed walk through the beautiful countryside and its folklore.
Intelligently done and I love a field recordings type Podcast, they are somehow very relaxing.
Charlie Cooper is a great host, humble and inquisitive.
Well done to all!
