Podcast – Prof Shane O’Mara on walking: the super power

Is walking a super power?

Hello LYNDA,
We know walking is good for our mental health – but what’s the science behind it?
Neurologist Professor Shane O’Mara brings this subject to life in his fantastic book, In Praise Of Walking.
We recorded a short interview with Shane before his keynote address at our National Walking Summit in Manchester, and with this being Mental Health Awareness Week, I thought it was a perfect time to share it.
Please have a listen…
