On April11, 2009, Ronald Scheepstra disappeared from Xcalak, Mexico.

Ron and his companions had been to this remote area on fishing trips in both 2007 and 2008 and, as avid fly anglers, had done extensive preparation and planning.

For reasons that are not completely known or understood, Ron broke away from his friends in the early afternoon that day. He reportedly climbed from the shallow water and as he began to walk down the path, called back, “You go on. I’ll be fine.”

Ron was never seen again.

Down the Path will explore the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, and attempt to answer some of the many questions that have arisen in the years since.

Great story, but....

The near constant elevator music really detracts from the host’s earnestness, and totally listenable voice, not to mention seriousness of subject matter. Just feels too much. Let the story, interviews, and journalism speak for itself; no need to lay a mundane sleepy/hold music track up under the whole thing. No offense to the musicians, it’s really just a context problem;)
Not a deal breaker though! I just want homeboy to lay off the wahwah synth for his next show, which I will be super stoked for!

Great listen!

Amazing well done podcast. My only complaint is the awful music that seems to drown out some of the interviews.

Top notch podcast

Really enjoying the story, subject, and interviewer. The story is laid out nicely and presented in an unbiased way. I’m a “slow listener” but I’ve made it through a few episodes in fast time. You don’t need to be an angler to appreciate this podcast. 5 stars!
