Hello and welcome to The Wild of the Word’s Folktrails podcast where I’m going to be taking you outdoors with story, and stories outdoors! This podcast is all about blending walking with folklore – to relax, entertain, inspire and empower us all to get back out to the wild places, the untamed spaces and to breathe life into the multidimensional landscapes we encounter when we step outside!

I loved your podcast! What a fabulous story, and who knew you can milk a deer! I have been inspired and am meeting someone for a walk in Ubley Warren tomorrow!


Richard, 2021

We really enjoyed that! It's so great that you've recorded yourself out and about - it really transports the listener and makes you want to be there!

I absolutely didn't know that about berries. I'm going to approach those bramble bushes with much more caution next time! Great bit of escapism for someone who spends a lot of time working from home at the moment! Thanks!

Lockdown 2020

Ancient tales often help us explore emotions and experiences through a more objective lens - containing universal struggle, solutions and a space in which we might contemplate ourselves and our anxieties in another dimension.

So why not join me as I share some stories that feel right for this year?

Below, you'll find a series of little podcasts that focus on folktales about isolating, tucking up, exploring indoors and weathering the storm.
