The Original Outdoors Podcast

The Original Outdoors Podcast

A regular online audio programme from Original Outdoors
Original Outdoors Podcast
In October 2014 we launched our first podcast – a regular online audio show featuring interviews, tips, news and reviews from people who live and work in the outdoors.

Each episode features one or more interviews with groups and individuals who are passionate about the outdoors, outdoor news and skills and reviews of outdoor-related products and services. The episodes are released approximately once a fortnight and subscribers to our Youtube channel or Itunes feed will be automatically notified when new episodes are available.

The podcast is completely free, and can be streamed or downloaded to most phones, tablets and computers. It can also be streamed through this website following the links on the page below.

If you have any requests, suggestions or would like to feature as a guest on the podcast then you can email us through podcast@originaloutdoors.co.uk.
