1 PM EST: Join Leigh Brennan and Johnnie Walker, both well-known in the Camino world and experienced pilgrims who live in Santiago – although today Johnnie is speaking to us from Malaga on the Costa del Sol. Leigh and Johnnie are our “Voices from Santiago.” They will share the experiences of their journeys that brought them to Santiago and what life is like here as both residents and as pilgrims.

Leigh is the founder and host of The Camino Cafe podcast and Good Morning, Santiago, a Camino newscast, Since first walking in 2019, Leigh moved from the US to Santiago. She now dedicates her time to promoting healing and peace through capturing pilgrim stories to give interviewees a way to share their stories, to inspire listeners to want to walk a first or another Camino, and to help keep the Camino Spirit alive for pilgrims in between walks.  The newscast focuses on news from Santiago and the Camino, plus, offers timely tips and news from the path directly from pilgrims who have just arrived in Santiago. Leigh lives in Old Town and you will either see her walking her pup, Cooper, or hanging out with Pilgrims.
