About Rachel Wheeley

Hello and welcome to the Walk the Pod walking club!

I'm Rach, a comedian and podcaster. I've written for Newsjack, The News Quiz and Listen Against and made podcasts for the BBC and the Wellcome Trust.

I've gigged with the British Film Institute’s ‘Comedy Genius’ tour and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a show that DIVA magazine said was ★★★★★ “Slick and quick-witted”.

What is Walk the Pod?

Walk the Pod is your daily walking show where I take my podcast for walks because I don't have a dog, and you take 10 minutes out of the day to walk in nature and to pay attention to what's directly in front of you.

Since I started Walk the Pod in November 2020, the commitment to record the show has helped me to get out of the front door in the middle of the work day. I've walked with my kids, and members of the Walk the Pod walking club, but mostly it's just you and me, on the footpath, having a chat.

Use Walk the Pod to help you get away from your desk during the day, to walk in nature, and to pay attention to what's directly in front of you. You might be surprised by the results of a regular lunchtime ramble.

OK Rach, so where do I start?

First of all, have a look at the tiers and choose which one suits you best. All the tiers give you access to the Discord server, daily Lens clips (like Instagram stories on Patreon), Friyay blog posts, end of series wrap parties on a voice channel that you can attend in your pyjamas and more. And you can edit or cancel your pledge anytime you want.

Your support means EVERYTHING to me. If you join just for one month, thank you! And you can check out everything I've published since the beginning of this project. I publish super consistently, so you can be sure you'll be getting 15 daily podcast episodes, four Friyay blog posts, 3 French hens, 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree every single month. If that ever changes, I will pause my patrons contributions while I get my life sorted out. So you won't be paying if I'm not making the show.

If you can't pledge, watching, reading and listening to my stuff is a HUGE help. So thank you. Watch my comedy set about the BBC pips, and thank your lucky stars that you're not on the International Earth Rotation Committee. Lol.

The walking club is full of wonderful humans from all over the world who love to post pictures of ducks and clouds. We think about wellness. We think about how to enjoy this unique day. I'd love to see you there.

Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to our walky, thinky community!
Goals
13 of 15 patrons
When there are 15 walkers in the walking club, I'm going to put into place the next stage of my Walk the Pod business model!

Right now, listeners can subscribe to Patreon to support the show at £3.50 and £5 per month levels.

In the new business model, the lower tiers of Patreon will be closed, subscriptions of £5 per month will be available via Anchor/Spotify instead.

Lunchtime Legends will be able to join Patreon at the £10 and £20 tiers only. This will allow me to create extra content within Anchor, however I will still be offering the Discord server, Friyay blog posts, daily Lens clips and seasonal postcards to the original Lunchtime Legends (that's you!) and anyone else who joins Patreon at the higher tiers.

Thank you for getting in to give Walk the Pod an early boost, I really appreciate it.
