    Tom is an outdoorsy guy and a teacher. But after instructing Years 4-5 for about four years, he takes the plunge, setting out to walk 1100 miles around the perimeter of Wales. What begins as a nature adventure quickly becomes a test of both physical and mental strength. Along the way, Tom comes to realize bits about himself he never knew existed and learns that the most important things in life aren't items you buy, but rather loved ones, kindness, and the world around you- right where you are. Hear how his Welsh Wander grew into something much bigger than himself and is making a difference for people with Alzheimer's.
    Hear also from Earl who is 97 years young. He's a master mechanic, electrician, and a participant in a clinical trial on Alzheimer's. He remembers changing jobs at the start of WWII, riding horses in the mountains, and even hoisting an old teacher's Model-T onto the roof of a barn using ropes with his friends. In this touching interview, I talk with Earl, his daughter, and his grandson about life past, present, and why they care about helping those in the future.

Amazing podcast!

I listen to this podcast every day at work and I can never get tired of it. I even re- listen to some stories I already played through. I’ve recommended this podcast to so many of my friends and family and they love it too. Narrative is great and the storylines that he creates from his research is awesome. I love listening to stories from other origins and it has me even digging up some research of my own to further learn about these new stories I’ve never heard before. I also listen to Fictional which is just as great as this. So glad I found this podcast! It’s my holy grail for entertainment!

Makes me happy

I just started listening and I love it! I was so burnt out on true crime podcasts and just wanted something positive to listen to. I came from listening to Myths & Legends and Fictional too - which are very interesting and fun, but I also wanted something from the real world. I find these people’s stories so interesting. I love hearing their passion, and finding out how they got to their careers, and the reasons why they love what they do. I’m sad to see that there haven’t been any new episodes in a long time!
