1. Urban parks with Adrian Chiles

Woodland Walks - The Woodland Trust Podcast

We begin our second series by celebrating the benefits and beauty of urban trees with journalist and presenter Adrian Chiles. In a West London park, he describes how green city spaces and the countryside give him relief from the overstimulation of the capital. We chat too about Adrian's career, and reminisce a little about our good times working together at the BBC in the nineties. At times both funny and frank, he also touches on his experiences of depression and anxiety, as well as attempting to master tree ID and finally conquering the lofty chestnut tree he feared climbing as a child.

Adrian Chiles - The Stupid Albion

The Moon Under Water

The word ‘legend’ is oft used these days, but the next guest to head through the doors of The Moon Under Water can certainly lay claim to being a broadcast / pubbing legend: it’s radio and television presenter Adrian Chiles.As an expert in #chat it’s safe to say that pub conversation is very close to Adrian’s heart, and we can guarantee that the conversation at his dream pub will meander through topics a plenty. For the full experience, we recommend listening to this episode next to a warm open fire (although at time of release it’s very warm outside, so the fire is definitely optional). Want to contact the Landlord?

In Conversation with Adrian Chiles

Club Soda Community Podcast

This week we have a fantastic conversation between Geoff Jein and Adrian Chiles about cutting down our alcohol intake.In Club Soda, when it comes to changing your drinking, three things are important to us:First, we don’t tell people how to change - if you want to cut down, take a break or stop drinking, we’ll support you all the waySecond, we think how much you drink is relatively unimportant - what matters to us is how drinking makes you feel and the impact it has on your lifeAnd third, we encourage you to measure success on your own terms - we know that change isn’t straightforward and it can take time, and all your steps forward, however small, are worth celebratingWe say all of that because in this week’s podcast, radio and TV presenter Adrian Chiles talks frankly about the challenges and pitfalls of moderating his drinking. We got to know Adrian while he was making his 2018 documentary Drinkers Like Me. By his own admission, Adrian used to be a big drinker, and since then he’s cut down a lot - but some people listening to his story might think he’s still drinking too much. But we’re not holding him or anyone else up as a role model. The only change that matters is the change that works for him. Just like the only change that matters is the change that works for you.Who is Adrian Chiles?Adrian Chiles is a writer and television and radio presenter. He has co-presented both The One Show and Daybreak. We first met Adrian while he was filming his documentary Drinkers Like Me, in which he explored his relationship with alcohol, and decided to cut down. Adrian looked into why he and many others don't feel they are dependent on alcohol, but find it almost impossible to enjoy life with it.Support the show (https://joinclubsoda.com/product/tip-jar-support-club-soda/)

Ep 1: Drinkers like us? In conversation with Adrian Chiles

The Alcohol 'Problem' Podcast

In this episode I talk to journalist and TV broadcaster Adrian Chiles, the man behind the widely applauded 2018 BBC documentary, ‘Drinkers Like Me’. The programme has been credited with prompting a national conversation about alcohol use, and Adrian has continued to explore the subject and is writing a book about how to drink less. I spoke to Adrian about his journey and key questions relating to drinking and moderation. Please note: this episode explores moderation as a route to addressing potentially problematic/harmful drinking. This is not to negate abstinence related goals rather than to present and explore moderation in the context of the host guest's experiences. Anyone with physical alcohol dependence should seek medical advice before making changes to their drinking. For information or support relating to help with your or someone else's drinking please see here.
