Fireside chats



Light a campfire and everyone becomes a storyteller

Who doesn’t love a good campfire? It’s Mother Nature’s television and it beats Netflix any day. Without fail, campfires bring us together. They warm our souls and encourage us to slow down and reconnect with each other. Wisdom is imparted, jokes are told, celebratory drinks are poured and jovial toasts are made.

Call it campfire confidential if you will, but, light a cosy fire, and everyone becomes a storyteller. There’s something so magical about gathering round those captivating, cackling flames as they dance hypnotically under the dark and starry cloak of night. Friends, both old and new, take the time to connect with each other and often the best, most memorable, stories are the ones shared around the fire.

Join us for a “fireside chat” and settle in for some good old fashioned storytelling and thought-provoking discussion.

Choose a podcast that suits you

In addition to our exciting &Beyond TV lineup and weekly TV guide, our &Beyond Fireside Chats are a series of podcasts with thought-provoking debates, laughable moments in the wild and inspiring personal narratives.

With four different shows, each suited to unique interests, there’s something for everyone.

We’d love to hear what you think, as well as other topics and people you’d like to hear from.
