Unlocking Landscapes: making a podcast in 2021

I’m really pleased to say that I’m in the process of launching a podcast. It’s called Unlocking Landscapes and will, unsurprisingly, be about people and landscapes. Below you can listen to the podcast intro:

The first episode focuses on London’s historic Great North Wood and Chris Schuler‘s upcoming book The Wood that Built London, which will be released in October 2021.

I grew up in the historic territory of the Great North Wood in south-east London, so this subject is of big personal interest for me.

It’s pretty daunting starting a podcast and also fairly cringe-worthy listening to your own voice. I’m hopeful of posting the first episode on Monday 8th February. It’s an hour long and I’m still working through the edit. The first one will be the most difficult because of all the work submitting it to podcast channels and getting used to editing audio again.

The podcast is now being accepted to podcast providers so it should be on Google, Apple and Spotify in the next couple of days. Please subscribe!

At the moment this is a labour of love and is totally funded by yours truly.

The episode will be of particular interest to those who live in south London and are keen to understand more about London’s rural and cultural history. It will also be of interest to those who want to learn more about the how human history has impacted woodlands over time.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully listening soon!
