Great diversity in a digestible format

I really enjoy the wide array of topics, geographic regions, and skill levels discussed, from the casual day hiker to attacking the most intense though hikes. The message is always positive and terminology is basic and lingo explained so hikers are all levels can understand.

Great podcast

One of my favorite podcasts. Look forward to Thursday’s so I can listen to the next episode as I drive at work. If you hike, backpack, or have ever considered it, it’s a must listen.
