A life more wild by C&S

A Life More Wild - Our Podcast

Come on outside! A Life More Wild is a series of wild walks with fascinating people, transporting you to the great outdoors and helping you connect with nature through their unique perspectives.

In series one, we'll go on the trail of ravens with birdwatcher and equality campaigner Mya-Rose Craig (AKA Bird Girl), forage in the woods and cook on the beach with River Cottage’s Gill Meller and leap into some very cold water with adventurer Sian Lewis.

We’ll also be bringing you the stories of the people behind some of our most amazing places to stay, from the Cumbrian man who stuck a camper van to a bus, to the couple looking to turn back time on their land in Cornwall with an incredibly ambitious project including the reintroduction of beavers to the UK.

Follow on AppleGoogle, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
