    Call of The Wander (Trailer 1)

    Call of The Wander (Trailer 1)

    You start with your own breathing. Match the rhythm of the breeze that carves the canopy, the birds and bugs chirping in set intervals, feel the subtle pulse rising up from the ground beneath you. To wander is to dance with the forest; but the forest isn’t just the partner, it is the music, it is the style, it is the rhythm, it is the ancient steps and movements that have only been passed down from one dancer to another. She teaches you to dance the dance she invented, to the music she’s singing, in a tonal system she thought up one night as it pleased her. You breathe, and you listen, and you wait for your place, your first step, the call to wander.
    The Wanderer is an original folk tale audio fiction from T.H. Ponders. A member of Fable and Folly Network. Produced by Jordan Stillman. Show Art by V Silverman.
    Coming May 3, 2021.

Thoughtful, meditative

This show is a lush, pensive journey that examines one person's relationship with the natural world, their own inner demons, and their search for their lost love. Give it a listen!

What a woke loser

Jesus H Christ - how did this get approved? The equivalent of an uneducated street musician, only worse cause he wants to give a lecture. Stolen lands? F off dude - go read a book

Interesting Setting

I'm really liking the setting of this podcast, and I can't wait to see where it goes!
