    I can sympathise. In the Middle-East, I have picked up the habit of listening to music with only one earphone as I have found that two can be pretty effective at blocking out the sound of automatic weapons being discharged nearby. :eek: Depending on location, it could be militiamen celebrating a wedding or security forces responding to an attack.

    Little chance of that while hiking but the habit lives on...

    More of your unhealthy obsession with Nuuns?

    Ray, to the best of my knowledge doesn't make an appearance on the biomedical body horror that is tracks ;)
    I also just have one earphone in, hangover from work, nothing ruder than ignoring a client trying to talk to you.

    Ahh, OK. Had me early nineties head on.

    Wonder if there's a podcast of the Munro show? I reckon I might enjoy Muriel wittering in my ear.

    Rich Roll's podcasts are great if you're into quality interviews with climbers/ultrarunners/olympians/nutritionists/health practitioners/entrepreneurs etc. A lot of mind-blowing conversations.

    I've been enjoying these podcasts from backpacker Radio I have just listened to the one In description below very easy listening.
    Backpacker Radio
    In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, Smiles and I sit down with author Ken Ilgunas. To put it simply, Ken is a guy who marches to the beat of his own drum. We talk at length about his time hiking the length of the Keystone XL Pipeline both where it was developed and supposed to be developed, where had to not only trespass for much of this hike, but knock on complete strangers doors for help on many occasions. He shares his take on public vs. private land, why we should have hiking access on private land, the threats to public land, and how this is handled in other countries. Ken also shares about his time living out of his van, before #vanlife was even a thing. We close out the show with a new thru-hiker of the week, some Trek propaganda, and a new segment, two lies and a truth. This is another juicy show. So strap in :thumbsup:

    The non-cycling ones I listen to that might be a good fit are Fastest Known Time, Further.Faster, and The Outdoors Station.

    I found the Google (Android) app 'Podcasts' works best for me. Very uncluttered & easy to use.

    Ones that I enjoy:

    Joe Rogan (massive range of guests & 3hr chats)
    Found my fitness (Rhonda Patrick talking about nutrition & health)
    Philosophize This! (Stephen West's philosophy course)
    Mysterious Universe (crazy conspiracy stuff)
    Dan Carlin's Hardcore History (history)
    History of English podcast
    Sam Harris - Making Sense / Waking Up (slow chats, interesting ideas)
    No Such Thing As A Fish (dabbling with this one...)
    Meat Eater - Steve Rinella (hunting in America, interesting to hear about all their wildlife)
    Futility Closet (dabbling atm...)

    I think Google Podcast has a sleep option too.

    If under reported world news interests from our own correspondent can be good.

    R4 had a series of interviews with a woman who suffered at the hands of the Interahamwe. Completely traumatizing listen.

  24. Good to see a supportive thread for producers of the old podcasts alive and well here on Trek-Lite :)

    Not sure how up to date you guys are here with my Podcast series, but thought you might find this one of interest.

    This is a 30 min excerpt from the longer video interview with Katie Jane Endurance and her 600km Iceland traverse.


    The longer video which shows the route and all the photos etc can be found here >

    I'm getting close to my 500th episode now and always looking for suggestions for the future. Especially as I may be doing more video based interviews too.
