Great Conversations & Real Life

As they walk their dogs, Lucy speaks with her neighbors, and fellow dog-people, to get to know them better and share their lives and stories with us. It's a gentle podcast about real people, with comments about the weather (brisk, cold, muddy, for instance) and occasional breaks to call the dogs back in from their wanderings. Some stories are surprising, but most of those I've listened to so far just show how unique ordinary lives really are. As such, they validate our various, ordinary, unique lives. Well done!
(I heard about Walky Talky on Lucy's other podcast, dumteedum, a fancast about The Archers, a very long-running BBC radio drama set in rural England - utterly addictive! I recommend all 3 podcasts.)
