Backpacker Radio 66 | Drunk Q&A with Badger & Chaunce
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 (hi, that’s me), 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 friends gives us the poop story to end all poop stories. This one is our most feral podcasts to date. Because that’s what you do during an apocalypse.
