After much thought we’re moving from Medium and continuing our Walk on the Wild Side project over on Substack.

We think that the move will allow us to develop the project further, engage with our readers more and — in particular — allow us to develop podcasting alongside our regular posts.

Over the next few weeks all the content here will transfer over to Substack — but we are taking this as an opportunity to revise the stories and add more of Jackie’s photographs to them. We also have some fascinating new stories to share, some arising from interviews we have been doing.

There will also be a second walking tour taking place and a new edition of the map which we will announce on Substack.

Thank you for your interest,

Mike and Jackie
