🎉 Episode 2 of On The Outside 🎉
This episode was recorded on Wednesday 11th August with myself hosting, and Ani Patas, Oge Ejizu and Soraya Abdel-Hadi on the panel.
Today's episode talks about how best to respond to racist stunts, horses being treated badly at the Olympics (and the fabled origins of the modern pentathlon) and outdoors festivals.
You can find the transcript and full show notes - including links to all the articles mentioned in the episode - on the website.
And a small announcement on the schedule for the podcast: new episodes will be released on 15th and 30th of the month!
And in other news...

Frit and Ani were both (separately) at the Women In Adventure film festival in Sheffield on 6th August. You can watch the films yourself here >>
