Tentflix, challenges, ditching podcasts, and more.

Outdoors

Tentflix: why I vlog and my favourite outdoors channels – this is a great list of UK-oriented outdoor-themed YouTube channels (thanks for listing me too, Robin!). I rarely have time to watch much on YouTube, and go through multi-month spells without creating any videos of my own, but there are a few channels I really enjoy watching.

Review: Gregory Optic 48 – a well-written gear review from Hendrik Morkel at Hiking in Finland.

All the Tors Challenge – the full story – I’ve enjoyed following Emily Woodhouse’s All the Tors Challenge (made all the more challenging by the weather).

Editorial

What’s so exciting about PerfectIt running on a Mac? – this is great news for editors who prefer to used a Mac.

Entanglement and social media reform

The deliberate awfulness of social media – this dual book review has a number of excellent critical insights, and is a good introduction to the concept of the Entanglement in general.

Should we stop listening to podcasts? – I go through phases of listening to podcasts, and (much longer) phases of finding them a huge waste of time and attention, for many of the reasons Chilvers cites. The only podcast I’ve ever found completely worthwhile was the glorious Mountain.

Attitudes and Altitude: a new Sidetracked project, and a journey across the Alps

I'll be spending much of the rest of the summer in the Alps, trekking and a bit of running from Ventimiglia to Zermatt. It's going to be an incredible adventure. I can't wait to begin.
