If you need a little more Outlander in your life, you’ll want to look for something involving the real history of Scotland. Clan Lands podcast is coming in 2020.
Two months ago, we learned Graham McTavish and Sam Heughan were joining forces once more. No, there’s no confirmation McTavish is returning to Outlander somehow (although with flashbacks, it could be possible to bring Dougal “back to life”). They’re working on the Clan Lands podcast.
This is going to be the perfect way to get a little more Outlander in your life. The Clan Lands podcast will go into the history of the clans of Scotland, as well as the history and landscape of the country. After all, you fell in love with the country when you started reading the novels, right?
McTavish recently shared that the podcast will arrive either spring or summer 2020. The duo is already doing research and recording the podcast, starting the process on Sept. 7. There’s no information on what the topic is to start, but Sept. 9 is an important date in Scottish history (although set in Henry VIII/James VI’s time and now in the 18th century).
The focus of the podcast is going to be history. And the two aren’t going to cheat in this aspect. They’re working their way around various parts of Scotland, taking in the beautiful landscape. It also sounds like they’re tasting the local drinks—will that include Sassenach Whisky?
There isn’t a list of episodes or even an idea of the number of episodes that will be included. The podcast plotting finished four weeks ago, but very few details have been shared.
How does this affect Outlander Season 5 filming? I wouldn’t worry about that. Heughan will be working around his filming schedule, and it’s not like he’s traveling too far for the research. Filming takes place in Scotland, after all!
