Mountain podcast

    Interesting history can come from all kinds of places. Mountain describes itself as “a podcast about adventure”. It’s hosted and produced by Christopher Sleight who is a radio producer, journalist and climber living in Scotland. The podcast is a crafted mix of interviews, sound and music, brought together to tell compelling and immersive stories. Mountain was launched in 2015 and is one of the UK’s most popular outdoors podcasts. Check out Podcast number 16 for an interesting story behind a hidden tunnel entrance and an abandoned village. It’s called “a quarry full of ghosts” and its focus is the Aberfoyle Slate Quarry.
