Love this podcast!

Cheer is such a great interviewer and does a great job capturing different hikers’ unique experiences with long distance hiking. Some thru-hiking podcasts seem to drag a bit, but Cheer does a great job keeping things on track while allowing each hiker to go deeper with their own stories. Super engaging, fun, and informative for anyone who loves thru-hiking or following thru-hikers.

Great hiking podcast!

Cheer does an excellent job keeping these conversations both informative and enjoyable. She keeps the conversation moving and on track, but also allows for side trails here and there. This is already one of my favorites, and I’m fairly picky about what podcasts I listen to. I like a little banter but I don’t want to feel like my listening time is being wasted on useless drivel, and I thoroughly enjoy dense data, but it needs to be spiced up with real human stories. Great blend!

Love this podcast so much!!!

I am so intrigued by everyone who hikes these long trails for months at a time! I want to know all the details and this podcast provides! What a great resource and community for any hiker or just an observer like me who wants to live vicariously THRU them! Great job Cheer!
