    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.

Gary is till 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!

Really Wanted to Like This

This could be so good. I jumped ahead a year after episode #4 and was similarly unimpressed. Zero structure. Too many characters. Disjunct. No organization. Terrible interviewing skills. Zero storytelling skills. Zero post-processing. Bad sound. Who’s in charge here? This is so bad. What a waste of time.
