A Mile in My Shoes – follow the weekly podcast

Nominated “Best New Podcast” at the 2019 British Podcast Awards, A Mile in My Shoes is a weekly podcast that invites you to walk a mile in the shoes of a stranger and listen to their story.

All stories and shoes are part of Empathy Museum’s A Mile in My Shoes project by Clare Patey – an interactive shoe shop which tours internationally.

Each Wednesday one of the A Mile in My Shoes stories is shared on the podcast. From a dairy farmer in Worcestershire to a sexual healer in Melbourne, the short episodes open up a space to hear from someone you might never have come across.

Subscribe to the podcast

In the spirit of the project, we recommend downloading episodes to your phone, slipping on some headphones and taking a stroll while listening. Please be aware that some stories are more appropriate for adult listeners. The podcast is produced by Loftus Media. Captioned versions of the first 40 episodes are available on YouTube.
