Writer and academic Kerri Andrews has recently written Wanderers: A History of Women Walking that challenges the male-dominated history of walking. Drawing on her own experience of hill walking and through research, she has written a compelling book that includes intriguing stories about women walkers since the early 18th century. She focused on women writers who reflected on what walking meant to them, many of whom have been overlooked or ignored.

Kerri writes: “Women have walked for centuries, and many of them have found the act of walking to be extremely powerful, personally and creatively. Dozens have written compelling accounts of their walking, and what it meant and means to them. So why does walking and mountain literature continue to ignore not only women’s stories, but the fact that they walked at all?”

Handing the controls over to the listener might not be the best advice in every case for broadcasting radio but when one is trying to create a month long sound walk it seemed the obvious thing to do.

Immersive sound walks have been around for a few decades, enjoyed by individual listeners or in small groups of listeners. Award-winning author and radio producer, Horatio Clare teaming up with the BBC, has hugely increased the audience for sound walks. His narrative combined with quality soundscapes recorded on foot in remote areas, has generated hundreds of thousands of new listeners to a phenomenon know as "Slow Radio".

Waylosing; a kind of reference to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle: how go balance the need for orientation and the desire for the unexpected, unorganized, strange, wild unknown teritory?
