Girl About


Our very own Julia featured on this popular podcast talking about the Cairngorm National Park in Scotland.  This podcast aims to inspire you to make amazing memories featuring honest local reviews and recommendations, travel, ideas, knowledge, inspiration and resources from women travellers.

The Rough Guide to Everywhere


This podcast aims to tell those ‘untold stories of travel’ that you just don’t get in guidebooks.

From surf schools in Rio to the real meaning of ‘Hygge’ (and how to say it!), the podcast takes a deep dive into a topic every couple of weeks.

Armchair Explorer


Travel writer Aaron Millar makes every episode if this fortnightly podcast an immersive experience.  Trek into Gorilla country with a leading conservationist, march into the Antarctic on the trail of Shakleton; sinking into the ocean in a great white shark cage or escape into the Alaskan wilderness with Olympic gold medal skiers.

Wander Woman


Phoebe Smith is known for her love of adventurous travel.  Award-winning writer, broadcaster and Wanderlust editor Phoebe invites you into her world, avoiding well-trodden paths, she gets amongst the wildlife and meets conservation heroes.  From a 300 mile kayak around Britain’s waterways to a cargo boat on Quebec’s remote lower shores she shines a light for unsung female travellers.

The Big Travel Podcast


Writer and filmmaker Lisa Francesca Nand gets together with a well-travelled interviewee to explore their life through the lens of their wanderlust.

Happy to go off piste, Nand delights in teasing out weird and wonderful anecdotes from her guests. In the most recent programme she heads for Málaga to chat with genial comedian, musician, birder (and linguist – who knew?) Bill Bailey.
