Some history – we celebrated our tenth year anniversary in 2018

A Walking and Art residency at the Banff Centre in the Canadian Rockies in October 2007, was the setting for a number of interviews with artists who incorporate walking in their practice. How to share their enthusiasms was the challenge, and Talking Walking, became a solution.

Talking Walking is a project set up by Andrew Stuck, the Founding Director of the Museum of Walking and design consultancy Rethinking Cities.  Rethinking Cities provides advice to the built environment, health and transport sectors, so Andrew is in a unique position to interview artists and specialists from the world of walking. Andrew has been featured in Country Walking magazine (March 2018) interviewed by Nick Hallissey, who Andrew interviewed for Talking Walking here.  Andrew has been recorded in conversation with Rick Pearson  in April 2018 and published on Londons_peaks.com

What you will find on Talking Walking

Primarily, we publish podcasts.  Our intention is to publish a new 15-30 minute podcast every 6 to 8 weeks.  Issues or sources mentioned in these podcasts will be listed and where possible links will be created so you can follow up on the topics or issues discussed.

Use this facility to e mail comments, (we will endeavour to incorporate them in forthcoming podcasts).

Want to listen to our podcasts through Apple podcasts?  We too!  iTunes (as it was called then) accepted our first 26 episodes yet subsequently has chosen to not recognise our feed.  If you can shed light on how we get re-listed please let us know. Babak Fakhamzadeh is kindly offering us advice on how to get this issue resolved.

We marked our 5th anniversary in 2013 by asking thought leaders to make a 5 year walking forecast. Why not listen to these brief predictions to find out who came closest to the reality?

Talking Walking brings you on-location interviews and several recorded using Internet telephony.  Our aim is to publish a podcast every 6 – 8 weeks. We try to provide a variety of voices for you to listen to, including designers, artists, activists, writers and those of us who have a passion for just taking a walk.
