Social Hiking Podcast Episode 3 – The one with Richard Flint (@flintyrich)

For the third episode of the Social Hiking podcast, my guest co-host is Richard Flint (@flintyrich). Topics covered include some of our favourite maps, a hike in Snowdonia, an update on developmentsv recent and coming up, and Rich talks about his experience on TGO challenge.

A massive thank you to the sponsors of this podcast: Sawyer Europe – who provide clean drinking water to countless people including the thirsty backpacker whose only source of water might come from a remote dirty puddle.

I would really appreciate any feedback on the podcast – what you liked or didn’t like, or what you would like to see covered in future podcasts.

    Hey guys, I enjoyed listening to the content, but the music is somewhat dramatic for a hiking podcast? Something a bit softer on the ears…

    • daylightgambler says:

      Hi Jim – thanks for your comment and great to hear you enjoy the content. With the theme music I was after something that was uplifting and inspirational without being too epic. Personally I like it, but I take your point that it is a bit dramatic. Unfortunately we are stuck with it for a few more episodes at least (it is licensed and paid for), but I will see if I can tone it down a bit in future episodes.
