Best podcast for hikers hands down!

This is my absolute favorite podcast on ANY platform! Cheer is a real deal triple crown hiker who interviews long distance hikers and potential long distance hikers engaging in a positive, informative, inspirational manner. The Thru r podcast for you if you’re considering hiking a long distance trail or are already an experienced hike who loves hearing about life on and trail. Thank you, Cheer!

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.

Brutal

I’ve listened to 15 or so of the podcasts and truly can’t stand them. Silly giggling over nothing, topics are silly and mostly not important. The vocal fry and uplift are like fingernails on a chalkboard. Hard pass.
