LONG-TIME Countryfile presenter Adam Henson is making career moves away from the BBC as he launches new pet podcast in partnership with Agria Pet Insurance.
Adam, 56, will be talking about all things pets on his new podcast All Ears.
Adam has worked in agriculture his whole life, having grown up working on his family farm before becoming one of Countryfile’s main presenters in 2001.
He is a certified agriculture, farming and animal expert with over 50 flocks of rare breed animals at his own family farm, Cotswolds Farm Park.
Adam has done a lot of diverse work within the farming community, from vlogging farm diaries on YouTube, to writing agricultural books, to hosting events and tours of his farm.
So, it only makes sense that he’s taken on another new animal-related project.
In partnership with Agria Pet Insurance, Adam launched his own pet podcast, called All Ears, in July.
On the podcast, Adam talks to a variety of animal experts with the view of helping people care for their pets and give them the best life possible.

The podcast aims to support pet owners as they experience daily life with their furry friends and be there for them as a resource for any challenges they might experience with their pets.
The podcast launched on 12 July.
In the first episode, Adam spoke to Gwen Bailey, the founder of Puppy School. She previously worked at a large animal welfare charity in the UK and has dedicated her life to dogs and animal behaviour.
The animal lovers discussed all the important milestones in a dog’s life, beginning when they’re just a puppy, until they become an old-aged dog.

In the second episode of the podcast, Adam spoke to veterinary dermatologist Anthony Chadwick. In the rest of the episodes, which have yet to be released, he will welcome a range of pet experts, including dog behaviourist, trainer and nutritionist, Anna Webb.
This podcast involves some new territory for Adam, though, who, despite being a farm animal expert, admitted he’s learning a lot about caring for pets.
After the podcast was announced, he said: “I’m passionate about sharing my love of animals with others and the podcast not only allows me to do this, but as a pet owner myself, I have also gained some valuable hints and tips from the insightful pet experts that I can apply at home.”
He added: I can’t wait to hear what our listeners think.”

While Adam is certainly making career moves outside of the BBC, it doesn’t look like he’ll be saying goodbye to his decades long role on Countryfile just yet.
All Ears is available on all major podcast directories, including to listen to and download from Spotify, Acast, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Audible and Google Podcasts.
The next episode of Countryfile airs on Sunday at 8pm on BBC Two.
