Rolfdenver ,

Super podcast on thru hiking and other outdoor sports

As a fellow Coloradan and thru hiker, I love listening to Chad Lubinski’s podcasts - as well as watching his YouTube videos. Chad gives awesome info that’s entertainingly presented! I’m learning a ton and having a lot of laughs and inspiration from Chad. - Rolf Asphaug aka Kinnikinnick (previous guest on Backpacker Radio and Jester Section Hiker podcasts; CT 2021, Collegiate Loop 2022, BMT 2023, JMT -I hope! - 2024).

Highly recommend

I’m a new listener of this podcast but have been following Chad’s IG for a while. I had to come write a review after listening to episode #33. I was blown away by the Krakauer quote Chad cited, alongside Chad’s knowledge, analysis and vulnerability throughout. This episode was particularly relevant for me. Will continue listening on those long commutes!
