Stories from the Trail is the hiking community's only live call-in show, created by and for people who love to talk trail. We go beyond the Appalachian Trail don't limit our conversations to hiking. Hosts Reptar, Gary Sizer (aka "Green Giant", author of Where's the Next Shelter?) and Megan Thompson (aka "Voldemort") will bring you their conversations with people who live outside.

Trail Correspondents is a teleportation machine to the trail- in audio form. Every other week, a select handful of thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, and the American Discovery Trail, give us a glimpse into the world of long distance backpacking. Through their eyes and vocal cords, we learn all about the highs, lows, and nitty gritty details that go into a half-year, cross-country trek. Trail Correspondents is the next best thing to being on ...
 
From the Appalachian Trail to the Pacific Crest and everything in between. Backpacker Radio is a show all about the wonderful world that is thru-hiking and long distance backpacking. Co-hosts, Zach "Badger" Davis and Juliana "Chaunce" Chauncey muse on the backpacking life and the latest from the trail every other week. Topics include but are not limited to news, trail culture, interviews, gear, advice, and all you can eat buffets.
 
An overweight, 61-year-old retiree, with zero hiking experience, decided to hike the entire 2,185.3 mile length of the Appalachian Trail in 2014. What could possibly go wrong? As his brother, Mike, commented, "It's a bit like taking up boxing and fighting Mike Tyson in your first bout." Join Steve and his guests as they discuss all aspects of the trail, from gear to Lyme Disease, then back to trail magic and injury.
 
Cultra Trail Running is The Cult of Ultra Culture, North East Trail running from the grass roots. Our podcast shares the unique perspective of the North East Beast Coast Ultra running scene: raw, impulsive, and irreverent. The Cultra Trail Running Podcast is a place where we can get together and discuss all the fun stuff that happens on the trails that most normal people don't care about. Join the Cult! or maybe you already have without realizing it... resistance is futile.

CULTRA Trail Running Podcast is completely out there in the ether my people, since we can't meet in person we're meeting in the virtual space. So we wax poetic on the state of affairs- Western States 100 is cancelled, so that's cool. Jimmy has been waiting eight years so what's another? Maybe we make it a cool decade- if you people can't stay the F…
 
Plenty to get your teeth into today. Our main guest is Paul "Skunkape" Collins, a man who took on the Appalachian Trail in 2012 and has missed it every day since. He also plans to get back on the trail in 2022, his 10-year trailiversary. He took over 2,000 photos (carrying a DSLR camera) and shared them with friends and, most particularly with his …
 
Backpacker Radio is making good on their promise to get weird. Today we bring you a drunk Q&A. Backpacker Radio's new intern, Elise Ott, navigates us through a series of questions, including COVID-19, how we're handling the self-quarantining, a lot of poop related subjects, thru-hiking purism, and much more. At the top of the show, one of Chaunce's…
 
Socially distanced but not anti-social! We are legion, for we are many... just stay the fuck six feet away. Postponed events? Yes, us too. We commiserate but stay optimistic. Art says we sound tinny but the hipsters among us will say it's "lo-fi indie" like our early stuff before we signed to a major label. We talk virtual races, FKT attempts and h…
 
We have another pastor on the show today. Cari Pattison is a member of the Class of 2019 (as am I) and she tells the story of her hike as it unfolded last year. She had planned a return to the trail this year but, with the Corona Virus now threatening to overrun most of us, she has had to accept that this year won't be possible for her. Cari's calm…
 
We're joined by Sandi Marra, the president and CEO at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. As noted in our previous podcast, the news and guidelines around COVID-19 and the trail system has been evolving rapidly. At the time of the previous recording, the ATC asked people to postpone their thru-hikes. Since that recording, the ATC has increased the s…
 
Times they are a changing, but the trails are still there. The Cultra Crew gets together, well not exactly together, as we practice social distancing in the studio. Then Becky comes up with several Cultrivia questions for Fred. Do you know the answers? We also announce our new weekly contest, The Cultra Social Distance Challenge! Post up a run on t…
 
This is a special show that takes in the Corona Virus and its implications for hikers, as well as a father and son pair of pastors preparing to hike the Appalachian Trail. First, we have Aaron and BG Turner, two men ready for the adventure of their life, yet torn with doubt over the advisability of the hike. This situation is changing so quickly th…
 
Stacey Clark takes over from Colorado and does a one on one interview with Joshua Stevens. Joshua shares the very raw and real story of his life, which involved the special forces, injury, addiction, and a love for animals and nature. Having lived through these struggles, Joshua has a new, deep, and profound appreciation for life, which has now led…
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are joined by Erik Schlimmer. Erik might be the hiker's edition of Forest Gump, in that he's somehow squeezed five lifetimes worth of events into his four plus decades on this earth. If you're a fan of the Adirondack, you are in luck, because Erik is not only one of the most experien…
 
In this episode we address the very difficult question: How might your hike impact the spread of COVID-19 in the trail community? Our qualified expert this week is Dr Kathryn Michels, (aka "Mr Peanut), a CDT SOBO thru hiker who also holds a PhD in Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer biology from the University of Virginia. In addition to covering …
 
This week's episode finds the crew sitting down with Glastonbury's Shan Riggs, fresh off a stunning 15-hour 100-mile performance in the desert of Las Vegas. What makes Shan go? The crew asks pointed questions and receives pointed answers. They also all deep dive into the coronavirus and its impact on running events around the world. Some mild 4% ta…
 
This week, now that we've finished reading his book Hiking Through, Paul Stutzman shares with us his hiking and personal journeys. We've learned about his AT trip and I wanted to know what happened after he stepped off the trail. Like his books, Paul is funny, perceptive, and occasionally serious. If you'd like to learn more about Paul or buy some …
 
The Cinnamon Connection is joined by ultra running legend, Courtney Dauwalter. For those who might not be into the ultra-running scene, Courtney is an absolute powerhouse long distance runner, with a young race resume that's hard to fathom, including wins at the Moab 240 (which the 2nd place finisher was more than 10 hours behind her), the Javelina…
 
This episode we talk, and we talk and talk some more, mostly about Fred’s FOMO at the Colchester Half (and Art and Becky’s double half and even one guy that did the triple half; looking in Tony Bonnano’s general direction), we get real with Seasonal Affective Disorder, and what the F is wrong with the marathon and USATF for that matter and just gen…
 
We first met Chloë de Camara a few weeks ago on the show, informing us about the critical Leave No Trace principles and, in a follow-up conversation, it was clear that Chloë had her own Appalachian Trail story about her trek in 2015. She was very intentional about how she came to the trail, writing a thesis about Appalachian Trail thru-hiking as a …
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are joined by five sixths of the Strawbridge Family. The Strawbridges successfully thru-hiked the PCT SOBO in 2018 with four kids in tow- ages 11, 13, 14, and 17. We chat about everything you can dream of regarding hiking as a family, including how they handled school, gear, their pa…
 
Disclaimer: this episode barely talks about Western States, maybe some Golden Ticket shit but we put that in the title because this will make people download it or something, and new listeners we love you (allegedly). We jackass around for a bit before landing on our preferred topic of the night: Tribalism (and take a deep deep dive into that). You…
 
Aaron Owens Mayhew, MS, RDN, CD is a registered dietitian, ultralight long-distance backpacker, and backpacking food cookbook author. Aaron has worked in the field of nutrition for nineteen years and has been a backpacker for nearly as long. After having a mid-life crisis in 2016, Aaron began long-distance backpacking on her 40th birthday by hiking…
 
Whoosh! That's the sound of George Daniels passing you at your last race, and if you've been running the trails here in CT the last few years, good chance you've heard that whoosh and seen the man pass you at some point. Don't worry it's happened to all of us. George sits down and explains where he came from and what he was doing the previous 56 ye…
 
Our guest today, Brant Bazner, lives in the iconic trail town of Damascus. He moved there to be near the trail and has now been hiking on the AT for several years, mainly with his dog, Garvey. Steve and Brant have a wide-ranging conversation about hiking on the trail with a dog, along with a discussion on gear and a few of Brant's stories about his…
 
'ello governor! Today we venture across the ol' pond to jolly England and Scotland for a bit of a field trip with the one and only LSE. We get serious for a moment, then we remember who we are and well, that's all right. The greatest benefactor the podcast has ever known (as well as my favorite triathlete ever), Peggy Byram sits down with us to tal…
 
It's a fabulous show this week, not least because we have Mr. Fabulous, or Derick Lugo, as the main guest. Derick hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2012 and has earned himself a reputation as a speaker about the trail, as well as a growing recognition as a writer. His new book, The Unlikely Thru-Hiker, is now available at his website and on Amazon. Yo…
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are joined by repeat guest Steven Shattuck aka Twinkle, along with his lovely wife, Grace. This is our third annual Valentine's Day episode, and I am telling you, this one will give you all kinds of hashtag relationship goals vibes. They detail their year-long adventure beginning wit…
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are changing things up a bit. Today's show is dedicated to all things girl stuff. We've kicked aside the segments and dove straight into everything to do with thru-hiking as a woman. In addition to Chaunce, we are joined in studio by former guest, guest co-host, and listener favorite…
 
It’s that time of the week again- I swear this is a very special episode. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll do everything in between. We have the lovely Carly Eisley in studio this week to talk about adventures, racing (she's a 10+ year vet in this sport, people) and life and how all three merge and the beauty and wonder of it all. Ups, downs and…
 
A packed show this week, with about 90 minutes of goodness!! Rory Anderson, or Bigfoot, is this week's main guest. Rory is an accomplished hiker, having completed the Appalachian Trail in 2016. He has done several other trails and recently broke the Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the Superior Hiking Trail. As Rory stresses, he's not superhuman; he's …
 
Today the Cinnamon Connection is joined by Wild Amanda aka Naps. Naps is the only person I've met who's hiked the entire PCT with her dog, Frank. We go down the rabbit hole on what it takes to thru-hike the PCT with a dog, including recommended gear, how she handled Frank's food and water, how she curtailed her hiking schedule to best suit Franks n…
 
Here we go with yet another installment of the pod my peoples! And just like that, the CULTRA Crew grows! We asked Fred Murolo of he’d like to go steady with us and he said YES! Then Becky made it really awkward and gave him a ring. So there’s that. But what did we talk about? A lot of jackassing to be honest. But some timely facts (possibly) and s…
 
We're almost at the end of my series on hostels, so Neville Harris, the owner of my favorite hostel on the trail, Woods Hole, was a great person to chat with. The interview took me in an entirely unexpected direction, but it revealed Neville to be a true AT character, flaws and all. You can learn more about the hostel by visiting http://woodsholeho…
 
We interrupt your normally scheduled Backpacker Radio content to bring you a sneak peak of a brand new podcast launched by The Trek in partnership with BadCat Media, called, The Attempt. The Attempt follows Benjamin Drachman during his *attempted* SOBO thru-hike of the PCT in 2019. The show is produced by Julia Drachman- and no that last name is no…
 
CULTRA is a podcast about... welp, tonight... we're about nothing. We just jackass around the whole show. Literally just that. Jackassing. We attempt to approach a point, but hey man- squirrels. Art's buddy Al stops by, John Coctostan and Close Talker make appearances as well. If you get those references, you'll do just fine. Jimmy manages to offen…
 
This interview with Silvia Cassano was recorded nearly a year ago, but I've only just recovered it. Silvia is a "Trail Angel" referred to by a previous guest, yet she has so much more to offer than that. Her knowledge of all things trail shines through here, with her many positions within the AT community contributing, particularly to the trail in …
 
We are joined by legendary PCT trail angel, Donna, L-Rod Saufley of Hiker Heaven. Donna comes by her trail name, L-Rod, short for lightning rod, very honestly. She's exceptionally outspoken, a ball of energy, and has a deep passion for the Pacific Crest Trail and its community. We hear all about her time serving as a trail angel to PCT hikers for m…
 
What's good CULTRA Nation? You ready to start training again? Yeah me either. But in the meantime, let's get dirty with some training talk- Jimmy's got Boston coming up and his heart rate data is off the chain, let's troll his ass on Strava. Speaking of Strava, stout group out there, keep it up gang. Art went to Nashville and got busy, and when I s…
 
Another great show today, with a guy who is clearly in love with hiking and particularly the Appalachian Trail. Craig "Hawk" Mains has been this way before but, with his THIRD thru-hike, he was going for something really special. Listen to how it all unfolded, with not only his epic hike but also several personal events that deeply affected him. Cr…
 
I've met many extraordinary women on the trail but few who have left as deep an impression as Sara Spittel, or Cushy Life. Cushy was the Queen Bee of our little tramily in 2019, with both Trigger and me in supporting roles. Cushy displays an empathetic nature, showing concern for everybody she met on the trail–often to Trigger's and my mock annoyan…
 
We are joined by "Crazy Jack" Northam. Crazy Jack has earned his name by summiting Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the United States' lower 48) nearly 200 times, an endeavor he didn't begin until the ripe age of 50 years. Today, jack now 72 years old and still going strong. He regales us with tales of his many ascents up his favorite mountain, why…
