Welcome to the download page for The Moral Activist Wandercast

I do hope you enjoy engaging with the Whitby-based escapades of Francis Haydn Williams in the locations in which they took place.

The tour takes an hour and twenty minutes.  It’s split into three sections, so you can do it a bit at a time if you like.

The start point of the tour is the pedestrian area at the bottom end of Flowergate in Whitby YO21 3BS (where the little tree is by the Sutcliffe Gallery).

I strongly recommend downloading the audio files to your mobile device, as streaming can prove unreliable – I’d hate for you to get cut off in the middle of Haydn Williams’ activist business. The device does not have to be smartphone, anything small, portable, and capable of playing MP3s will do just fine 🙂

To download the audio:

iPhone users – search for ‘ludicrouspilgrim’ in ‘Podcasts’ on iTunes, then you should be able to download the three Parts of The Moral Activist from my feed and listen to them offline.

If you’re reading this on an Android phone, press the line of three vertical dots to the right-hand-side of each audio file and select ‘Download Audio’.  Once it’s downloaded, you should find each audio file in the ‘Downloads’ section of your phone’s default audio/music player – for example, Google Play Music on many Android phones.  (In Google Play Music, you should find the ‘Downloads’ folder under the ‘Albums’ tab.)

If you’re reading this on a laptop/desktop, right-click on each audio file and select ‘Save Audio As’.  Once it’s downloaded, you should find each audio file in your ‘Downloads’ folder.  You can then transfer the audio files to your mobile device.

Wandercast Ep.4 Feedback Questionnaire – Please fill me in 🙂

I’m living by the seaside at the moment, so I thought I’d bring a bit of
salty wonderment to you.

You can enjoy this Wandercast anywhere you like, whether out in the briny
blue or locked up land-style.  As with all Wandercasts, it only really lives if you enjoy it on foot – so get out there and get in amongst it! 😀

There’s some imagining to be done, and some practical playfulness too.
Engage to whatever extent you want, or just let it wash over you, but do see if you can push your playful envelope just beyond the edge of your comfort zone.  You never know what fun you might have!

Ever wondered what goes on inside David Attenborough’s head?

 

Now you can find out!  Join me as we clamber inside the cranium of a natural naturalist national treasure and journey through his incredible Imaginarium whilst reimagining our own surroundings.

 

N.B.  Please download this podcast onto a mobile device and listen to it whilst wandering – it’s the only way 🙂

(If you’re on my website and can’t see the “Download Audio” button, click on the title of the post and it will appear beneath the player)

 

Let’s do this.  Put on a pair of comfy shoes, open the door, open your mind, and take the third step on the path to playfulness (steps 1 & 2 also available).

(I know it sounds obvious, but do please take this Wandercast for a wander; it only really works if you interact with it on foot.

And please, please, please let me know how it goes by filling in the feedback!)

Be on the lookout for detail and remember:

You are the architect of your own playfulness!

Wandercast Ep.2 Feedback Questionnaire – Please Fill Me In 🙂

 

If you’re a returning Wanderer, welcome back. If this is your first Wandercast, I’m so glad you’ve swung by. Either way, buckle up because things might get a little ludicrous. In Wandercast Episode 2 we’re going to explore how everyday environments can become our adventure playgrounds. Just like the project as a whole, this is about unearthing some play in the everyday by looking with new eyes (and a cheeky grin) around places that we often might take for granted.

 

N.B.  Please download this podcast onto a mobile device and listen to it whilst wandering – it’s the only way 🙂

Don’t be scared; we’re not going to start doing death-defying Parkour, and you’re free to do as much or as little as you like. Even just thinking about the kinds of things I talk about as we go should be interesting. (He says hopefully.)

 

This is the philosophy of parkour, but without the extreme physical exertion.  It’s where parkour meets going for a stroll; we’re going to seek out opportunities for a little playful action the way that parkour people seek out opportunities to put a sweet run together.  I call it Parkour Vision.

 

You’ll often hear the click of an old-school tape machine, which is the sign that we are teleporting from one recording location to another. When you hear me say “Wandercast!” in an echo-ey kind of way, that means we’re moving on to another Adventure Tactic, so you might want to pause me at that point if you want to carry on playing around with the previous tactic for a bit longer.

 

If you don’t want to do any of the tactics as they come up then just have a think about why you’re choosing not to at that moment. (Hey, you can always try them out later.) Most importantly, look around the environment you’re in and see where you could do them. This is (almost) as much about seeing the potential for playful interactions as it is about actually enacting them. Of course, I think it’s best to actually do stuff, but it’s totally up to you. It’s your show!

 

So put on a pair of comfy shoes, open the door, open your mind, and take the second step on the path to playfulness.

(I know it sounds obvious, but do please take this Wandercast for a wander; it only really works if you interact with it on foot.

And please, please, please let me know how it goes by filling in the feedback!)

Thank you for opening the door to the Wonderful World of Wandercast; you are in for a treat and no mistake.

 

My name’s LudicrousPilgrim and I’ve devised the Wandercast podcast series to draw people together to unearth a little playfulness in everyday life. This is not to seek the “life changing events” that occur with remarkable regularity on talk shows, game shows, and reality TV. This is to tweak the way that we perceive and interact with the world; to see and feel the potential for things, places, and people to offer more than the normal, functional ways that we tend to interact with them.

 

Although, there really won’t be anything much in the way of hot, hot, playful action this time. This episode is an introduction to get you into the spirit of Wandercast and to get a feel for what it’s about. It’s a chance for you to get to know me and to start to perceive your environment in a way that normally, as you zip from A to B, you might not. It’s a chance to see how the sounds of where I am interact with your experience of where you are. (If you can’t wait to get going with the playful action, you might want to begin with Ep.2)

Be on the lookout for detail and remember: playfulness won’t happen unless you want it to happen.

So put on a pair of comfy shoes, open the door, open your mind, and take the first step on the path to playfulness.

And please, please, please make sure you let me know how it goes by filling in the feedback!
