Stories from the Trail: A New Podcast from Family

Merry Christmas Hikers!

Pox & Puss is no longer an only child! The world famous Appalachian Trail podcast now has a little brother and sister, as expands our hiking podcast family!

Please join us for “Stories From The Trail”, jointly hosted by yours truly and my good friend Megan (you may know her as “Voldemort”). Together, we’ll share with you the conversations we have with notable outdoor enthusiasts.

Our first episode drops today, and in this one, we meet Zach Davis of “The Trek.” Among other things, he’ll tell us about that time he was almost eaten by a lion.

You can get the new show anywhere podcasts are found, or go directly to the show by clicking the link below.

Happy Trails!

    Pox and Puss’s podcast is a perfect example of “should have quit while ahead”. It was really great in the early days, but at 2 -3 episodes/year now, even they seem to have lost interest in it. Then again, the main topic was his thru-hike and her attempted thru-hike which happened about 10 years ago. It was like the uncle at Thanksgiving telling the same stories over and over, year after year. Good luck on your podcast. I enjoyed your book and am looking forward to the podcast.

    Hi guys!

    2x AT thruhiker here (’96 and ’01-’02; also done Foothills Trail ;-D, Pinhoti Trail, various long hikes here in Japan)… that’s me.

    Loving the new podcast. Ya’ll have great chemistry. +1 on Voldemort’s hand washing technique mentioned at the start of Episode Two. I thought I’d invented it!

    As the show progresses, y’all might want to think about having themed segments, games, stuff like that. And please don’t be shy to go deep into the hiker’s psyche (like the late, great podcast Sounds of the Trail — RIP?). That’s what I want from my hikes, likewise my podcasts.

    Keep up the good work!

    I follow the adventures of a mother and son in my State of Connecticut. They are section hiking the AT. Done Connecticut, Massachusetts, and I think New York. Well, Trish Whitehouse is a nurse and her son, trail name Brave heart was born with half a heart. Hiking has made him so strong. Its a great story I bet your listeners would love. She just mentioned on her Facebook that she was listening to Where’s the Next Shelter, so she has heard of you. You can find them on YouTube as Hiker Braveheart. I am friends with Trish on Facebook. Let me know if you need help reaching out to her. I just started the podcast and have listened to the first four. I enjoy it. I thru hiked in 1983.
