Superb Wild Swimming special
Made me want to rush off to the nearest stretch of water - please do more episodes on wild swimming !!!
Good green news
I really like Charlottes approach and choice of interviews. Bringing good green news to our ears and learning more about the wild scapes of the UK
It's natural to like Growing Wild ...
Growing Wild provides an antidote to all those "banter" podcasts with intelligent interviews about many aspects of the natural world, presented by the affable Charlotte.
