Episode 130: Jon Gower, Why Words Matter
Episode 130 of The Adventure Podcast features author, broadcaster and correspondent, Jon Gower. Jon has published over forty books, and his passion for the Welsh language and landscape is contagious. This episode is a little different in the sense that it is not full of action-packed tales of exploration, but instead gives an insight into the importance of language, and how understanding the names of places can give us a deeper sense of the place we live or are visiting. Jon goes on to share some genuine tales of adventure, and also touches on his new book, The Turning Tide.
