Fergus Collins: “These ‘plodcasts’ offer magical and thought-provoking wild experiences.”

The popular nature podcast explores the Great British countryside as the team take atmospheric walks around the UK recording their experiences.

The latest series follows Honey Buzzards in South Wales as well as conversations with nature writer Helen MacDonald, Mya-rose Craig, (dubbed as The Birdgirl), in Bristol, breakfast in the Black Mountains with rural commentator Rob Yorke and actor and comedian Simon Farnaby talks about his countryside connections. The team also explore a Napoleonic fort, a wild estuary in Snowdonia, the Canals of Manchester and enjoy wild autumn walks across the country as the season advances.

The Countryfile Magazine podcast has received much critical acclaim in 2020, shortlisted for PPA Podcast of the Year and Publishers Podcast Awards podcast of the year, as well as winning Innovation of the year at the 2020 BSME Awards.

BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Editor Fergus Collins adds, “These ‘plodcasts’, as we call them, offer magical and thought-provoking wild experiences at a time when we all need escape into beautiful landscapes where we can find peace, space and a bit of magic. Listen to farmers, conservationists, poets and writers – as well as birdsong and the enticing soundscapes of nature – and be transported every week into the countryside you love.”

Immediate Media Co says it is producing more podcasts than ever for brands such as BBC History, BBC Science Focus and BBC Countryfile Magazine.
