Nic’s last show

It’s been a delightful four years being hosted by Nic Findlay on the Long Grass Sessions. Today’s show was an au revoir, hope to hear you back on a more child friendly spot on the airwaves some time in the future.

For now – just a couple of (self indulgent) highlights from the show.

Highlights of the last four years of Health Trip

Seeing the way we present the show diversified with streaming live and podcasting.

I’ve been running the health trip website since October ’05 and begun archiving not just notes from most shows but a collection of articles – commenting on scientific research and other aspects of health.

Late last year I started the Health Trip e-newsletter, now in it's third edition, and am getting good feedback. It’s very simple and carries some intersting information and offers not on the website. This month there are vegan bbq ideas, a reminder about Febfast and how to DIY your own month off booze if you’ve missed the sign up for the official one, some info on how naturopathy can save you money and a lot more. Frequently there are discounts and special offers exclusive to newsletter subscribers. To sign up go the sidebar on the website or click the link above.

It’s hard to pick a favourite topic, but I have enjoyed some of the diversions we’ve taken from the norm – like the “Realm of the Senses” series – on sight, sound, touch and smell. I also loved talking about simplicity and think it’s even more relevant as we head into these uncertain economic times (it’s a great tool to get control of both your finances and your life).

Au revoir Nic, it’s been great working with you!

Gill will be back with Health Trip, as usual, on Monday 16th February.
