Manchan Magan

Season 2, Ep. 12

My guest this week must be my most well-travelled guest so far. The renowned Irish adventurer, writer and documentary maker Manchan Magan.


If every episode has a personality, then Manchan’s is pure joy and love for the remotest places and peoples on a planet. A planet that needs sustainable help.


After over 30 years of unrivalled adventures to parts of the world unseen by most people, Manchan shared great travel tales about Africa, South American, Asia and the Middle East to name a few.


Manchan also tells me about his decision in January last year to give up flying for holidays for ecological reasons and to help raise awareness about the harmful effects of carbon emissions from flying and how he intends to renew his love of slow travel especially by train. 


Fergal O’Keeffe is the host of Travel Podcast Travel Tales with Fergal which is a weekly interview series listened to in over 70 countries. He interviews a special guest about their travels, adventures and experiences living abroad. The guests all have inspirational stories that enable people to armchair travel in their imagination.

Season 3 Preview

Season 3, Ep. 1
I’m delighted to announce that Season 3 of Travel Tales with Fergal returns on Tuesday 19th October and then every Tuesday after that. I have some brilliant guests lined up for Season 3 that I can’t wait to share with you. This podcast has a very simple premise where I chat to a special guest every week where I ask for 5 trips or places that most influenced them. We talk about their travels, adventures and experiences living abroad. My guests come from all walks of life with one thing in common. They all have great travel stories. I started this podcast exactly a year ago at the height of the pandemic to help fuel your imagination by doing armchair travels. But the world is thankfully opening up again and for Season 3 I’m back travelling and I can’t wait to share a new feature called destination specials including the central of Portugal and the Camino in Spain. I will be starting Season 3 on the 19th October with the US comedy legend Reginald D Hunter who has some great travel stories to share with us. Next week you can listen to a Travel Tales with Fergal Podcast recorded live in July at the Clonmel Junction Festival where I had a great chat with author Louise Nealon all about the writing process. You can listen now and see you next week for the start of Season 3. I really look forward to sharing this journey with you and Id also ask you to join me on Instagram to be the first to get updates on @traveltaleswithfergal.If you have haven’t already I’d ask you to give me a follow wherever you listen to your podcast and you will be the first to get a new episode every Tuesday.
