Great Podcast!

I love your podcast and have listened since the beginning. I listen to several other podcast, but yours is such a joy and it makes me laugh out loud and puts a smile on my face. I just finished episode 49 with Pretzel and it was great! I loved listening to him and liked how you guys just let the show go in any direction instead of having to stick to a planned structure. Keep up the great show and great information and content your putting out.

Can never get enough...

Just finished the episode #49 with Pretzel. Awesome episode as are most but his final note was spot on, these trails are all of our responsibility to protect and care for. I’ve hiked a mere 130 miles of the AT (southern PA, southern VA and a day through Roan highlands) and daydream constantly about thru-hiking a long trail. Fact is I don’t know anyone that is nearly as obsessed with backpacking as I am and Backpacker Radio gives me the opportunity to geek out and live vicariously through you two and your guests. Every guest adds a great piece to the collective recipe of the show and it brings me joy to see when a new episode is released. Eyeballed the TransCatalina a few months back and look forward to your takeaway. Happy trails!

True Love

I’ve been a Pod lurker for a couple years now. After 6 weeks on the AT in 2017, I needed something to fend off the claustrophobia and boredom that settled in when I returned to my desk job. Now, I live vicariously through you and your guests. LOVED the Peter Bakwin and the Pretzel interview most recently...almost lost me with a slow start, but I’m so glad I stuck it out. So enjoyable! Two years and you’re still getting me through my work day!
