Episode 5

Steppin' out long distance

Welcome to the July episode of Bathscape's Footprints Podcast!

This month we meet Bristol Steppin Sistas, a hugely popular new walking group for women of colour. Sophie Brown and Ruth Pitter tell us about their love of walking, what they get up to with the group and descibe some of the barriers women of colour face when venturing into the countryside.

Plus ... in our section Wise Words from Walking Women, we turn the tables and Lucy finds out from me about the joys and mechanics of long distance walking....

And finally ... Lucy goes for a walk with one of Bathscape's regular walking groups - this one is for older people and those who want to start taking exercise.

"It was excellent, really interesting and informative. The details and the way it was done, with three women farmers as key players, was really refreshing. I liked the voiceover and all the interviews." (Footprints, season 2 listener)

"All your topics on the Footprints podcast were relevant and fascinating to me as an older, female solo walker for the first time in the U.K." (Footprints season 1 listener)
