Ol and Dave chat to Amy Liptrot about The Outrun, Amy’s phenomenally successful debut book in which she discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope.

Recently out in paperback, The Outrun is this year’s winner of the Wainwright prize for UK nature and travel writing, and Waterstones’ September 2016 non-fiction book of the month.

More importantly, it’s bloody amazing, and you should buy it and read it.
