The Best Outdoor Adventure Sports Podcasts to Inspire You

Lately, I’ve found myself craving something different from the usual podcasts I listen to. While I love a good true crime or comedy podcast, I wanted more inspiration and to connect with others who love outdoor sports as much as we do here at adventuro. That’s when I decided to seek out adventure sports podcasts to get inspired for my next endeavour. Below I’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite outdoor sports podcasts to share with you all. Hoping these inspire your next adventure!

Scotland Outdoors is arguably the best produced and most frequented podcast on our list.

The Bucket Lister Podcast

Last, but not least, we have The Bucket Lister podcast.

He gives tips on planning adventures, reviews gear and equipment, and chats with people who’ve ticked off some pretty impressive bucket list items.
