219: Looking Sideways x The Adventure Podcast/Roundtable Special

Welcome to an extra-special episode of Roundtable, free for all subscribers, and a collaboration with my pal and podcasting peer Matt Pycroft of the brilliant Adventure Podcast, recorded live in front of an audience at the 2023 Kendal Mountain Festival.

This conversation came about when Kendal founder and friend of the show Steve Scott asked myself and Matt to pull together a panel for a discussion on the topic of The Power of Storytelling – New Perspectives. We invited our pals Adam Rajah, Soraya Abdel-Hadi and Roundtable regular Lauren MacCallum to join us, and this conversation is the result.

In this episode, we discussed, among other things, the following topics:

  • Vulnerability in storytelling.
  • How do we take climate storytelling out of the echo chamber?
  • Is longform dying?

This one was really special. I’m really grateful to Steve and Matt of being such great collaborators; to Adam, Lauren and Soraya for their trust and openness; and to the audience for being so engaged and receptive to this format and conversation. Let’s do it again!
