Podcasts about Australian pilgrims who have walked the Camino de Santiago can be downloaded from the archives of the ABC national radio and ABC local radio websites. I enjoy listening to them (and many other podcasts on my MP3 player), to help me to wind down before going to sleep at night. I’d like to share a list of the pilgrim podcasts that I’ve managed to find.
