Trivia challenge

I love the pod cast but imagine my surprise when I discovered that John Kelly lost the trivia contest on the backpacking and blisters Podcast. What’s up with that?

Feels like sitting around a campfire

I’ve been listening for a couple of years now and this has become one of my favorite podcasts. I like that it’s just casual conversation that just happens to be about backpacking. I can listen in the car and while I’m working without feeling like I have to hang on every word. I feel like I’m sitting around a campfire with my friends Jeremiah and John!

Thinly veiled ignorance for clicks

Content has gotten bad. Fake stance and terrible information for self aggrandizement. I don't care if you have a disclaimer. Creating an echo chamber for dangerous information is a terrible hill to stand on.
