Podcast production company baLORE Media has launched the fourth season of its adventure podcast Deep Roots, featuring participation from subscribers for the first time.
The new series, hosted by extreme adventurer and peak performance athlete Damian Browne, is titled Summit Pursuits: Deep Roots on Kilimanjaro and features Browne on his expedition going up dormant volcano Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania for the second time, alongside fellow adventurers and subscribers of the podcast Frank, Darren, and Marie.
“I couldn't be more thrilled,” said Browne. “This series isn't just about climbing a mountain; it's a journey of self-discovery, camaraderie, and pushing the boundaries of what our protagonists thought their bodies and minds could muster.”
“Teaming up with our incredible listeners and taking on Mount Kilimanjaro not once, but twice, was a really unforgettable adventure filled with highs, lows, and on a personal level, a lot of self-reflection. This series was challenging in many ways but also was a great experience to share with all the climbers, the support team, and everyone I met on the way to the summit.”
The series is produced by baLORE Media, founded by Cue & Podcast.co head of productions Niall Killeney Taylor, the production company behind the hit interview podcast Pulling Favours with Mark & Rory.
“When myself and Damian first started Deep Roots, we both agreed that we wanted to push the boundaries of podcasting by blending elements of storytelling, real-life experiences, and adventure while providing a riveting audiovisual experience,” said Taylor. “I am always blown away and proud of the emotional depth and raw authenticity captured in each series and this one is no different.”
“Our challenge is always the same: not knowing how or what the story will be until it's over, and this time we had three other stories to tell at the same time. But I couldn't be happier and more grateful to Darren, Marie, and Frank who volunteered their time and experience with us.”
