We want to diversify the people we normally hear talking about the outdoors, celebrate their stories, shine a light on their insights, and create a place for discussion, inclusion and practical advice.... Welcome to Finding Our Way, our new podcast to champion walkers, climbers and mountaineers from diverse backgrounds.
Hosted by expedition leader and equity champion Cress Allwood, and the BMC’s hiking ambassador and broadcaster, Mary-Ann Ochota, each guest explains the highs, the lows and the most surprising things they’ve learned from their adventures.
We talk to the people who are passionate about walking climbing and mountaineering, but also who have more to say. What about climbing the North Face of the Eiger whilst also managing Crohn's disease as well? What about having your period as you summit an 8,000m peak? What about organising a hiking group but not using the word hiking in case you put people off?
Finding Our Way's guests are as diverse as the outdoors should be. The first two episodes are out now:
