Backpacker Radio Episode #55: Kevin Nealon

Today we are joined by comedy legend Kevin Nealon.  In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 30 years, Kevin Nealon is famous for his years on Saturday Night Live and his character on Weeds, he’s a popular standup comedian, he’s been in a slew of movies, and he’s now the host of his own YouTube show, Hiking with Kevin.  Kevin insisted that we do the interview in the back of our camper van, and he regales us with tales from his time at SNL, how one of his popular sketches almost turned into a musical produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger, his favorite Chris Farley story, that time he helped deliver his son, along with his favorite hiking spots around Los Angeles.

Chaunce and I also get into the dumbest items we’ve carried on a thru-hike, which way to wipe, we have a triple crown of music to get you through a miserable climb, and get some much-needed horse facts.
