    EP 171 - Age Is No Barrier: Hunter Leininger's Quest for Adventure

    Hunter Leininger is an endurance sport multihyphenate. He's an ultrarunner, mountaineer, mountain biker, content creator, and reality TV star. The eager son of an endurance athlete, Hunter set his first World Record by becoming the Youngest Finisher of the 24 Hour National Championship at the age of 11 and has since set records and FKTs in expedition racing, adventure racing, mountain biking endurance races, and Ultrarunning. Recently he summited the highest peaks of each state in 42 days (beating the record), and just became the fastest to ever run 200 miles across Florida in 63 hours, and 52 minutes. A record once held by none other than David Goggins.

Can’t get enough backpacking

Interviews are good and personable, product talk from OV is great as well. Enjoy listening the ins and outs to how a cottage company works

Awesome podcast

The only thing is the mic is too pitchy or you guys are talking too close to the mic. The s sound with ear buds hurts my ears. Maybe just the ear buds though.
Love what you guys are talking about and the gear reviews. Though, I would like to hear some more stories.

Contest: What needs to be added to the podcast

I think that you guys need to do a little bit more with explaining like the technical aspects of backpacking and camping(ex: best practices), like more guide type podcasts. Furthermore , more storytelling about your negative experiences to demonstrate this is even better.
