    SPECIAL: COVID-19 and Your Hiking Plans

    In this episode we address the very difficult question: How might your hike impact the spread of COVID-19 in the trail community? 
    Our qualified expert this week is Dr Kathryn Michels, (aka "Mr Peanut), a CDT SOBO thru hiker who also  holds a PhD in Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer biology from the University of Virginia. 
    In addition to covering this very important topic, we get some good trail talk too.

Suzannah Troy ,

like the show just don't want to hear intro music

I listen to a lot of podcasts of different shows- often to decompress to be entertained or to try and fall asleep and consistently on Apple to hear these "musical" intros -- so annoying. Anyway, I like hearing about the trails.... I like Gary's books except that I'm vegan, his toe nails, and sometimes I just think misogyny like how Meghan is portrayed-- her trail name how much she talks but ultimately she's a superstar. She is a solid person. He makes a difference and helps I really like her and I love Lemmy from the book. It's funny, but I really like Gary's voice. I like hearing him read his book although not everything in it like his toenail or his sex life but really appreciate the humor.

awesome podcast for Hikers

great topics and guests not to mention the Interviewers themselves!!! Highly recommend

Gary is still not funny

Just listened to the come back episode and the show is still soo weak, especially with Gary. Stop interrupting Megan with your humor that you think is funny, it’s not and neither are you. I agree with other reviews on here about the structure, sound, etc. Just hand it over to Reptar!
