I have been loooking for Camino Del Norte podcasts but can’t find any. Can you advise? There are some great ones in blister care and packing that I found but none for the North.

Dave Whitson, author of the guidebook "The Northern Caminos", has many podcasts on the Norte.

I have a short podcast episode about my experience walking the Camino del Norte. I'll include the link below in case you're interested. It's a little under 20 minutes long. As a disclaimer, I am not an expert and am not qualified to write a guidebook about it!

You could also find it by searching "Life is Not a Casserole" on whatever podcast app you use and listen there, but it's from June 2018 so you'd have to scroll back a ways.

I love Dave whitsons podcasts. I was very disappointed when he took a pause publishing them. I would listen on my training walks. I must check out if there is an ebook version of his guidebook. We are walking the Norte starting June. All the variants look confusing.


For this breath, I am present.

Thanks for posting the great podcast, @meye1099! It was really interesting to me, as my husband and I are considering walking the Norte sometime in the (not too distant?) future.
