For over one thousand years, pilgrims and spiritual seekers from around the world have embarked on a pilgrimage to view the shrine of Christ’s Apostle, St. James, in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Each journey is motivated by personal reasons, and the distances traveled vary upon age, skill, and preparation.
Dan Mullins is a musician, radio personality, and podcaster who was gifted his first pilgrimage for his 50th birthday. Episode one of Dan’s show, My Camino The Podcast, briefly shares his experience in 28 minutes.
That episode left me both frustrated and fascinated—fascinated by his experience and frustrated by my desire for more details.
Now in its third year, listeners are introduced to fascinating people whose lives have been transformed during their pilgrimage. Dan describes his first journey as leaving behind the emotional baggage of the first 50 years of his life. He returns to Spain one year later and spends six weeks walking the Camino. Prior to his second trip, Dan is interviewed by a fellow pilgrim and filmmaker, Bill Bennett, and a month after Dan’s return, they record a post-trip interview where they delve into Dan’s epiphanies and insights.
For future pilgrims, this podcast provides inspiration and prepares you emotionally, spiritually, and physically for your journey. Each episode brings a sense of wonder, calm, adventure, and hope.
