The Long Walk Home
Join actor Bruce Hopkins on an extraordinary journey in The Long Way Home podcast. After losing his father and brother, Bruce embarks on a poignant pilgrimage, carrying their ashes across New Zealand to their beloved Stewart Island.
But this is no ordinary trek; he’s chosen the scenic Te Araroa trail, taking the long way to ensure a meaningful farewell.
As Bruce navigates rugged terrains and encounters diverse landscapes, he weaves heartfelt stories of his family, his acting career (yes, you might recognize him from Lord of the Rings), and the profound connections he discovers along the way. Each step is a meditation on love, loss, and the healing power of nature.
Through interviews with fellow hikers, locals, and experts, Bruce’s emotional and physical journey becomes a lens through which we explore themes of grief, resilience, and the deep-rooted ties that bind us to our origins.
The Long Way Home is a precious podcast that invites listeners to embark on this transformative odyssey alongside Bruce, finding solace and inspiration in every episode. Discover it on Podcast Radio now.
