Introducing the Extraordinary Ordinary Womxn Podcast, where host Frankie Dewar cycles 3000km around the UK talking to extraordinary womxn and folx older than herself (27). To show that you don't have to "Do it whilst you're young".
A new space for real womxn to share their unfiltered stories from living adventurous lives; skiing to hiking, climbing to sea swimming. biking to running and everything in between. Conversations that start in the outdoors open up to some of life's toughest moments. Challenges like divorce, illness, miscarriage, transitioning, mental health issues, or being LGBTQ+.
A podcast that is joyous and positive, packed with hope and advice, where everyone is seen.
Putting a shout out on the Facebook Group "Adventure Queens" for womxn to interview, Frankie made a promise to herself that if 6 people replied she would visit them and make that a trip!
With over 150 initial comments and more womxn coming forward all the time Frankie had a serious logistical undertaking to try and work out how to visit as many of them as possible.
Deciding to try and cycle 60Km a day and with approximately 2 months free Frankie planned a rough loop around England with trips into Wales and Scotland.
The trip was completed on the 24th October after 71 days on the road, racking up a total of 3,175Km and having consumed an awful lot of PBJ sandwiches.
