Episode 53: Iveragh Learning Landscapes with Eleanor Turner

We had such a great time recording this episode of the podcast! I wish all the recording sessions were as relaxed, open and enjoyable as this one. I sat down with Eleanor Turner, who was our guest on episode 17, in the Sea Synergy Marine Awareness Centre in Waterville. We talked about an event called Iveragh Learning Landscapes. This fantastic outdoors experience, taking place annually in the most South-Western tip of Ireland, focuses on outdoor education and connection with nature.

Listen up as we discuss the origins of the event, the schedule, what to expect during the panels and workshops, and where to get tickets.

Episode 45: Go Wild with Oona Tibbetts

Stand up paddle boarding, also known as SUP, is gaining popularity in Ireland and around the world. Sure, there are many who laugh and take shots at it. But that’s normal when the new kid on the block appears. But SUP is here to stay and, in this episode of the podcast, I talk with Oona Tibbetts who is one of the founders of the Wild SUP Tours, an adventure company which organizes paddle-boarding tours and retreats in the most breathtaking places in County Kerry.

But there is more! Recently, Oona set out to stand-up-paddle-board the coastline along The Wild Atlantic Way which is the longest defined coastal driving route in the world. The goal of this endeavour is to raise awareness about ocean pollution and climate change. You can track Oona’s progress by following the hashtag #oonagoeswild on social media. In the podcast, we discuss this fantastic challenge along with more general issues related to stand up paddle boarding.
