On this post, I am including some of the best Podcasts I have done through the years. I am not including online videos, radio interviews, television interviews or speeches at events. These are just the actual Podcasts which can be downloaded and listened to. Most of them are still online and I have placed the links below, embedding where possible. They are listed in no particular order, and can also be viewed on my media and PR page.
Stick It Up Yer Ballacks
During the pandemic, I listened to more and more Podcasts than ever before. Most of them were travel or football related, and I got into the best sports podcasts in UK, such as Quickly Kevin (1990s English Football), Spirit of 2016 (Northern Irish football) and Stick It Up Yer Ballacks. I had a regular appearance on Stick It Up Yer Ballacks as a quiz master where I’d set the football experts/geeks on there a quiz question and they’d have to guess it.
Back in 2013, while backpacking in Armenia, live from the Yerevan Hostel, I did a Podcast with Ian Robinson about an unstoppable mindset for travel. Those were glory days loyal and I reminisce on those wacaday times, before a book hat-trick, a century of countries and the nasty lies came to plunge me into deep depression.
The Pioneer Podcast
In 2021, during a lockdown, I grabbed a few beers in my flat in Poland and was interviewed by Gareth Johnson and Justin Martell in the excellent The Pioneer Podcast. This is run by the top notch travel company, Young Pioneer Tours. I have travelled with and represented YPT on many trips including North Korea (DPRK), China, Romania, Moldova, Saudi Arabia, Marshall Islands, Nauru and Poland.
The John Freakin Muir Pod
My first world exclusive about my book series “Backpacking Centurion” went on the John Freakin Muir Pod in July 2020. This was a cool chat with Doc which involved all sorts of stories including Lock In Lee and the upcoming “Black Album”.
Northern Irishman Jonathan Watson got in touch around the time of the first “Backpacking Centurion” release and asked about doing a video Podcast. We organised it and filmed it online, during the pandemic. Sadly, I had my major accident just before this, but survived to tell the tale.
