The John Freakin Muir Podcast: Backpacking Centurion Exclusive, Lock In Lee, Broccoli Farming and Antarctica

Aside from my shelved (and in many ways flopped) radio career, doing podcasts and radio interviews became a new trend on my backpacking adventures. Each time I have been featured on a Podcast has been highly enjoyable and each one was very very different. I am featured this week on the fantastic John Freakin’ Muir Pod by excellent presenter Doc.

Then in May / June 2020 as I prepared to launch the first Volume of Backpacking Centurion, I was contacted by Doc at the John Freakin Muir Podcast and delighted that I am featured on Episode 24 there. This was also a crazy event as the first date and time suggested by Doc, we had a misunderstanding and both missed it. Then, when we rescheduled the interview, it came at a time where I looked like this…

Yes I was supposed to do the podcast interview just hours after my 3 day stint in a Warszawa hospital due to being hit by a train, knocked unconscious and lucky to be alive. So we finally got it rescheduled…Yes, of course the Pod is a bit promotional for my book series but as this podcast was so enjoyable, and lasted longer than my previous ones, there are a few exclusives told on there.
