Blue Diamond Dave ,

I have been profoundly moved by the “Lucien series “

I have been subscribed to Van Sounds ever since I first heard an episode shared by The Dirt Bag Diaries several years ago. The latest series “Lucien” is a work of art. Living in the Eastern Sierra you can’t avoid the magnificent aspen groves. Over time I have learned to appreciate the carvings on these trees as I’ve trekked across the mountains of the Great Basin. After reading the book Talking Thru Trees I began taking more time to examine these carvings more closely . I am pleased that others appreciate them as well. Thanks Phil for sharing your experience.

The ultimate road trip podcast

Love this podcast, particularly the episodes that cover my stomping grounds from the Great Basin to Shasta. Loving the road postcards, and the baseball shirt is LIKE BUTTAH.

Fil Corbitt is a god-genius

Smart, well produced, incredibly thought provoking and often hilarious. Let Fil’s dulcet voice seduce you with real and sometimes very untrue facts about different locations of planet earth. I learn about lots of impossibly cool stuff I would never have discovered otherwise— for instance, wanna hear a Nepalese metal band using traditional folk instruments? You really, really do.
