Walking Heads

Welcome to the Walking Heads Talking Feet podcast. 

We’ve been pretty quiet over the last few months but we’ve been busy plotting out the year ahead and take the podcast across Scotland. We have also been working alongside friends and creatives in the podcast community to help develop new strands & content, which we will hopefully be previewing in the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, we are back in Glasgow, being led through the city by two of our very knowledgeable tour guides, in a crossover episode looking at two main themes of our audio walking tours. Broadcaster Jim Gellatly, who listeners should recognise from our first episode and the Glasgow Music Tour, is joined by GSA Professor Johnny Rodger from our ‘A Brisk Walk’ Tour, looking at Dereliction & Architecture in Glasgow. Sauchiehall Street holds so many key destinations on Glasgow Music Tour, two of which being the 02 ABC and GSA, which were tragically devastated by the fire of 2018. While we wait to hear when and how they might come back to life, new music venues are opening along this famous street, which also features in our A Brisk Walk Tour. We asked Jim and Johnny to bring us up to date with what is happening in Sauchiehall street and what it says about Glasgow life.  Bringing together their knowledge in these areas makes for a particularly engaging conversation with some surprises and many memories, including, of all people, John F Kennedy on Sauchiehall Street, can you believe?!

You’ve been listening to the Talking Feet podcast, produced by Walking Heads. Recording, editing and mix by Amanda Mitchell.

Do check out and have a  listen to our Glasgow Music Tour and A Brisk Walk Tour, which are both hosted on the Guidigo app, just search for Walking Heads. It’s also available on our website and on Bandcamp. Download the Guidigo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. We will be bringing A Brisk Walk and other elements of our Glasgow Music Tour to this podcast feed as well in the coming weeks. 

Is there someone in particular you’d like to hear on our podcast? Contact us via social media or email for suggestions. We will be venturing away from Glasgow in our next few episodes, exploring themes from our other walking tours in arts & culture across Scotland. Coming soon, we will be looking at the comedy circuit in Scotland, exploring Architecture in the Highlands, the Creative Community in Aberdeen and Traditional Scottish Music in Glasgow. We are also developing a mini series on mental health in Scotland so make sure you subscribe to this podcast. If you’d like to chat with us about arts, culture & community in Scotland or know someone who might, please do get in touch! We are also making some changes to our walkingheads.net website to give Talking Feet a more prominent home and make room for additional content so keep an eye out for that.

You can subscribe to our podcast on all the major platforms, like iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher and Acast. If you have any feedback for us or enjoy what we are doing, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts or on whatever platform you use. Reviews and ratings are very important in sharing what we do with a wider audience and we greatly appreciate it.
