The Best Podcasts for Nature Lovers

Commuting to work in a concrete jungle? Wish you weren’t? Transform your mindset by listening to an outdoor-loving podcast en route. Adventurers, landscape lovers, wild-swimmers, nature nuts and growers join forces in our collection of outdoor action-inspiring podcasts. To reconnect with nature, the earth and your wilder side, press play on your podcast of choice. 

 

  1. Terra Incognita – The Adventure Podcast

Catch yourself up on the goings on in modern-day exploration with The Adventure Podcast. Your filmmaker host Matt Pycroft teases the ‘why’ out of adrenalin-driven folk, from professional tree climbers to wildlife cinematographers. Long features get you under the skin of unusual individuals and their envelope-pushing antics. Snappier ‘dispatches’ are shorter, food-for-thought bursts to top up your inspiration tanks. Warning: listening on your way to work guarantees the day will be spent plotting your own escape. Sorry, bosses of the world!

The final episode in the Roraima Expedition series is now live. A full-scale sit down with @anna_taylor_98 in the hotel in Georgetown hours after she was flown out of the jungle. @mattpycroft and Anna talked through the entire trip, reflecting on Anna’s physical and mental journey, and telling the story of the expedition from start to finish. The series is now over, but if you haven’t heard it all then there’s over 5 hours of conversation mostly captured on location in the jungles of Guyana. There will be a feature film to follow, and we also have every intention of creating more live expedition series’ in the future. Let us know what you thought of the series (the feedback really matters to us) and enjoy the final episode. Link in bio

  1. Josie Long – Short Cuts

Short Cuts, presented by comedian and radio presenter Josie Long, is unlike anything else you’ve ever heard. Aiming to be universal rather than topical, this diverting antidote to mainstream mass-media is driven by no agenda other than ‘interesting’. Each episode sets found sounds, brief encounters and adventures to an atmospheric audio backdrop, from singing with whales to clouds of bats and the ballads of rare birds. This funny and fascinating series will delight and surprise in turn and recently won a ‘Best Radio Podcast’ award.

Leadville, Colorado is a mecca for endurance racing in the United States and home to some of the country's hardest trails and toughest athletes. In the summer of 2019, ultra runners Marvin Sandoval and Buttercup became unlikely partners and a perfect example of what happens when you combine a love of sport, hard work, a 10 foot leadrope, and a dash of crazy. One thing Marvin learned? You just need to hang on and see what happens. Please hear The UnderDonkey at the link in our bio or wherever you get your podcasts. @leadman_marvin #teambuttercup Mega thanks to our primary sponsor for The Diaries, @patagonia.

  1. The Peregrine

If you’ve seen the world’s most-watched natural history shows from Life on Earth to Blue Planet, you’ll know and love the mellifluous voice of Sir David Attenborough. In this gripping podcast, listen as he reads out JA Baker’s diary-styled ‘The Peregrine’, a timeless piece of nature writing that’s as focused as the bird’s gaze is sharp. Pop in the headphones, head off on a forest walk and melt into Attenborough’s hypnotic tones to get up-close-and-personal with one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful yet terrifying birds of prey: the Peregrine.

There is a huge self-love movement going on right now. @melissau, the founder of @whole30 and this week’s guest, is on board and so am I. Melissa knows firsthand you have to find love and praise for yourself, and not rely on other people for it. I still struggle with this – when I get good feedback about this podcast, I am on cloud nine, but when I get negative feedback I hate it. I’m working on relying on my own knowledge that the work I do is good, and that it has a positive impact in this world and that also I am just a part of a giant universe of beings and not alone. How do you pump yourself up when you’re feeling low?
