long walk with a kindred person
Kelly’s minimalist, traveling lifestyle is a lived inquiry into her own relationship with the land known (by dominant culture) as North America. She’s looking for other passionate creatives who have made intimate dialogues with place their central focus — and she finds them, and interviews them in this podcast. Always tuned in to the big stories that make up the cultural fabric of the places she travels through, Kelly draws out cozy tales of danger, rebellion and tenderness from an eclectic collection of mavericks. A Ground Shots episode is like a long walk with a kindred person, or a late night by a fireside where each question brings you closer to edgy, vulnerable and contradictory truths at the core of the human-land relationship today. Plug into the questions — tune in now!
Really enjoying this after the first episode. If you enjoy For the Wild and podcasts like that, this one is similar. I follow the creator's projects on Patreon and love her approach to highlighting key issues linking people and places. Kelly is a great interviewer - sensitive, thoughtful and inquisitive. Very much looking forward to seeing where she takes this podcast.
Fascinating and super interesting! Loved hearing the stories
