Podcast

Produced and hosted by owner John Feeney, The Pursuit of the Outdoors podcast covers everything from interviewing outdoor bloggers and business owners to discussing all things hiking, camping and outdoors related, and everything else in between. With five episodes already produced on a previous platform, 2018 sees the rebirth of the podcast on The Hiking Society website with a mission of becoming the go-to outdoor podcast in Australia. The podcast, much like the blog, exists to further connect the outdoor community together and bring exposure and awareness to brands, business owners, bloggers and people who are doing extraordinary things in the space.
