Florida Hikes

So glad to have found this podcast dedicated to the Florida Trail. I’m a basic occasional day hiker and live vicariously through other hiker’s stories. I’ve gotten great tips and enjoy the local storytelling. Misti is a great host, some guests are more interesting than others, but overall one of my top podcasts.

Big Cypress

It’s so funny to stumble upon this podcast now and to listen to the big cypress podcast after completing it brings back those fresh smells and feelings. Funny to see this produced on Jan 3rd when I made my backpack through on Jan 8th lol. Keep up the good work!
