‘From the Saddle’ is a podcast bringing you raw and real conversations from the Australian bush to the Mongolian Steppe and back.
Hear stories of triumph and tenacity; heartache and loss from rodeo riders, outback ringers, cattle traders, bronze sculptors and more.
Join our hosts Caitlyn Hewitt, Kay Becker and Scott Keogh as they speak with ordinary people doing extraordinary things. These enlightening conversations reveal why our guests started in their fields, how they endured their toughest challenges and their hopes for the future.
They're yarns best listened to with a cuppa in hand or during those long drives to town.
