Stepping Out - Talking For Walking Apr 17, 2022

32. Living and Walking in Staffordshire with Greg Wilson

32. Living and Walking in Staffordshire with Greg Wilson

I have a new episode – hooray. I have been pretty busy lately, studying and working and all the other things that fall onto my plate on a daily basis – but it’s all good! How are you? I hope things have got a bit more back to normal (whatever that is) in the last few months. It’s been a real rollercoaster hasn’t it and I thought I’d got away with it, but Covid has just caught up with me after going to a party last week – it was well worth it though, it was a right 70s dance off, loved it and thankfully, I am not suffering too much from it, so best case scenario.

So let me tell you about today’s guest Greg Wilson. Greg is a pal of mine and I talked to him all about his life from army, to civvy street, to finding a new life back in the area where he lived as a child in Mow Cop. We talk about kayaking, his giving up drinking, his heart attack and how he appreciates his life with his dog in his local landscape.

So, get some shoes on, plug your headphones in and let’s get walking.

30. Hey Babe....Take A Walk on The Beach Side

When we're away, we can often relax a bit too much, so this episode is recorded in Weston-Super-Mare on the south coast of the UK, where Kaz spent a few days away with her family.  She walked every morning to stave off the timber monkeys and to keep her fitness up for the South Coast Challenge a week later.  A relaxed walk to hopefully inspire you to do the same.  Happy Holidays!

19. Landscape Photographing, Desert Wandering & Writing with Guy Tal

19. Landscape Photographing, Desert Wandering & Writing with Guy Tal

Today’s guest is the thoughtful, talented and philosophical Guy Tal. A bit about Guy – he was born in Israel and after re-creating himself in different places, doing different things, he decided to settle in Torrey, Utah in the US of A. He’s been a soldier, a university teacher, a software developer, a technology manager, amongst other things, before settling into the life of a full time artistic photographer, writer, speaker and desert wanderer. He has 2 books out there: More than a rock - A deeper look at the creativity, art, expression, craft, and philosophy of landscape photography. The landscape photographer’s guide to Photoshop And his latest book coming out this year is called 'Another Day Not Wasted' (love that title) – and this is a reflection book about the years after his unfulfilling career and his deeper insights into life as an independent artist, his thoughts about photography as a form of art and as a means to a richer and more rewarding life, and his intimate relationship with nature and with his beloved desert—The Colorado Plateau. He’s all about the expression and philosophy behind a photograph, mainly of rock formations, trees and plants, captured perfectly and he brings into life his vision for each shot. His pictures are truly beautiful and they’re all proof of that brilliant nature out there. We talk about his photography of course and his writing, but also about his long distance hiking and backpacking to get where he needs to be. So, grab some form of footwear and some headphones and off we’ll go! VACCINAID link here:

13. Slow Ways Development and Exploring with Dan Raven-Ellison

13. Slow Ways Development and Exploring with Dan Raven-Ellison

My guest today on Stepping Out is Dan Raven-Ellison, who has become a bit of a hero to me over the last few months, as I have been following his story and work. He is a geographer and Explorer and has worked with National Geographic and Friends of the Earth and he is well qualified to talk about all things pathways, as not only that, he is a former Geography teacher and walked across the UK’s 69 cities and 15 National Parks in 2014. He decided to start a project and that is to map pathways as directly as possible between dwellings. During lockdown, 700 volunteers from across the country collaborated to produce a first draft of the Slow Ways network, creating a stunning Slow Ways map in the process. This incredible effort has led to the creation of 7,500 routes that collectively stretch for over 2500 towns and villages.
He is really out there in terms of countryside and urban environmental protection and access and has been spreading the word on the likes of the BBC, the guardian and throughout schools and councils, so you can imagine my delight, when Dan agreed to talk to me about his projects.
We talk all about Slow Ways, his pathway mapping project, London as a national park city, his children’s books and of course how he feels when he walks.

9. Ukulele Show Girl and a Different Life with Tricity Vogue

9. Ukulele Show Girl and a Different Life with Tricity Vogue

In this episode I chat with Tricity Vogue (aka Heather Tyrell). I mainly know Tricity as my ukulele teacher, however there are many other strings to her instrument and she is a self-proclaimed vixen of cheeky jazz. Time Out describes her shows as "Cabaret to run down side streets for, just get there early” Her website describes her shows as 'Charming, offbeat musical cabaret from a vintage songstress with a repertoire of surprising tunes and a colourful history of romantic misadventure. Performer Tricity Vogue has cut a swathe through the UK cabaret scene with hit Edinburgh Fringe shows from 2010 to 2014, and a host of London cabaret productions under her belt. She was nominated for a London Cabaret Award in 2012 and 2013, her solo show "Calamitous Liaisons", incidentally having the same name as an album of hers, had a sell out West End run in October 2013, and her 2014 Edinburgh Fringe show "Songs For Swinging Ukuleles" was selected as Edinburgh Discovery for Chelsea Theatre's Not Television Festival in August 2014. Tricity regularly appears on variety bills across the UK and Europe, teaches ukulele lessons, (that's to me) and provides sparkling musical entertainment at weddings, parties and events, both solo and with her All Girl Swing Band. "Tricity Vogue presents her own blend of slink and sass - Think Peggy Lee after a few too many cocktails". She is also a writer, musical creator and script editor and an all-round very lovely, accommodating and friendly person. The no-show side of Tricity sees her living in the Leicestershire countryside with her husband and new puppy, Lulu, where she takes advantage of the many walks it has to offer and we talk about her love of walking in both London and where she lives. We could have covered a lot more in our chat, as she is a kaleidoscope of talent, stories and anecdotes, but I hope you enjoy this snapshot of her life. So get your shoes on, go for a walk and listen to the fascinating tales of Tricity Vogue, show girl, as well as lover of nature and the quirks of life. - Tricity's musical - buy Tricity's music here Protection and development of pathways across Britain:

5. Kids Talk About Walking

5. Kids Talk About Walking

We all know how important it is for kids to exercise, especially in this era of tech addiction. I asked children of different ages, to talk about how far they walk to school, where they walk and how it makes them feel and this was the result. They talk about walking with their family and why it's good for us and they also tell us who they'd like to walk with either fictional or real. I'm sure you'll agree, they have it all sewn up and I love it! 10 IDEAS ON HOW TO ENCOURAGE YOUR KIDS TO WALK: WALKING TREASURE & SPY TRAILS:
