Claire Vennis and Joff Lacey with Petersfield personalities and their stories.

We’re embracing our inner Vikings this week at Butser Ancient Farm for the Equinox Boat Burn.

 As darkness descends on this spectacular evening we meet a number of participants who have come to celebrate the turning of the year – Viking style. 

Avoiding the clash of shield walls, Jon Walker from the Petersfield Post brings the latest local news and Suzie enters the new Neolithic longhouse here at Butser Ancient Farm in her Wilde Walk.

We end this week’s P pod with local band The Pretty Visitors and their song ‘Western Skies’.

The P pod is hosted by Claire Vennis and Joff Lacey. Tuesdays at 9, Wednesday’s at 7 and always online at
