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.
 
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.

Join the Cult! or maybe you already have without realizing it... resistance is futile.
 
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 ...

What's up with all the fast guests lately? We got another speedy one here with Josh Katzman, who you may know of Trail Animals Running Club in the Greater Boston area.

We're not so focused on the AT this week, with Luke "Strider" Jordan taking on some of the wilder American trails. His first thru-hike was the 4600 mile North Country Trail, and he became the Earl Schaffer of the Great Plains Trail when he completed the very first thru-hike of that new trail. On the way, he learned what worked and what didn't. He s…
 
Raven "Rae" Matherne (not to be confused with Disney sitcom star Raven Symone of "That's So Raven" fame) has lived an incredible life- from becoming a black belt to scaling all 48 of the New Hampshire 4000-footers to becoming an elected lawmaker in Fairfield County, this 32-year old has overcome a lot in their life, and we sit down to one of our mo…

Sarah Poriss is an attorney (allegedly) and she specializes in debt relief and foreclosures, but what she's really known for is her superhuman ability to crew the F out of any runners going long. Sarah is a published author as well- check out her book Got Debt? Sarah's website: https://www.sarahporiss.com/ We’re on Spotify! https://open.spotify.com…
 
Ian Golden is a runner's runner.

This week's guests met as members of the Class of 2019–my year, even though we never met–and they have been together pretty much ever since. Natalie and Grady both left a little earlier than I did and had a terrific tramily. It was Catmando, one of their tramily and a listener to the show, who pointed me in their direction. Natalie and Grady's stor…
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are joined by Sarah Jones Decker, author of the new gorgeous photobook "The Appalachian Trail: Backcountry Shelters, Lean-tos, and Huts".

"Good Times, dumb times you know I had my share!" - Robert Plant on Bill Odendahl. Bill is awesome. In between running 12 hour ultras with all three meals at famed New England fast food joint Duchess and 170-mile weeks Bill managed to free up a half hour to talk some smack with the CULTRA Crew. We’re on Spotify! https://open.spotify.com/show/44etXy…
 
We've got another terrific show today, with Bobby O'Donnell, a listener, providing our main conversation. Bobby and I discuss a pivotal moment in his life that led him to marathons on seven continents and, in 2018, the Appalachian Trail. His story has moments of sadness, disaster, and triumph, all of which he drew on during his hike. A paramedic, B…
 
Today we are joined by Shug Emery. In addition to being a hammock enthusiast, with almost 100,000 YouTube subscribers, Shug's previous profession was as a circus clown for Barnum and Bailey. We obviously go way down the traveling circus rabbit hole, and we promise you his stories do not disappoint. Shug also shares his top tips for beginning hammoc…
 
Not only is James fast but he can make his own gels too, here's the recipe: Homemade Gels. We're super psyched to interview James that we had to do it twice, and the second time we even hit "record" We’re on Spotify! https://open.spotify.com/show/44etXyR0WbJtmKRKrP7V6M We’re on iTunes! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cultra-trail-running/id14…
 
"Third time's the charm!" says Becky as we (no shit) had to try to start the recording three times tonight (holy shit). First time Art just shit the bed. Second time just brain fart city. Third time = nailed it. It's a good thing because we sit down with Benn Griffin, one of the best humans in Northeast ultra running. Benn directs races for the Ber…
 
Michele O'Neill is the person you want in your corner- she's got a street smart sensibility with a smile to match. She's not only CT's best cheerleader but one hell of a runner to boot.

This week, we have a book theme in the show, with a giveaway of six signed books. The principal guest is Sarah Jones Decker, or Harvest, who thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2008, but that wasn't the primary reason that we have Sarah as a guest. She has photographed and written about all the AT shelters in a beautiful book that evokes all the me…
 
Chip Howard hails from Springfield, VT and he quickly established himself as one of our favorite friends of the podcast- one slip of the finger changed the word "is' to "in' and the rest is history. We’re on Spotify! https://open.spotify.com/show/44etXyR0WbJtmKRKrP7V6M We’re on iTunes! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cultra-trail-running/id14…
 
Sometimes we just need more. We knew from the beginning that we would not get to everything during our Episode 73. Ellie joins Art for a one on one interview where they dig deep into the past and retrace the steps that she took to get where she is today. This is a very frank and honest conversation about the struggle of facing one’s demons, standin…
 
This week, our guest is a listener who is also a LASHer, a long-ass section hiker. His name is Steve Ortiz or Survivor. His trail name gives away that the mere fact that he is hiking the Appalachian Trail in sections is a blessing in itself. A cancer diagnosis has not slowed down this self-confessed adventurer and, while he regrets that he has to s…
 
In episode 69, we are joined by Will Robinson, AKA Akuna. Akuna is an army veteran, the first known African-American male to complete the triple crown, and an all around awesome guy.

Episode 72? Welp, the shit starts getting really real at mile 72, so you better get up outta that chair and hang on! New Social Distance Challenge? Check! This one is all about…you’ll have to listen. Speaking of listening, we love our Patreon supporters, even the ones that don’t listen- what are we talking about? Fucking LISTEN! We dive deep into a…
 
With the trails now quieter than they've probably ever been at this time of year, it seems appropriate somehow that we should have a trail maintainer AND thru-hiker as our main guest this week. Paul Curtin hiked the AT in 2015 with his son, Kyle, and now gives back to the trail through his work with the Carolina Mountain Club. Paul and Steve talk a…
 
CULTRA is back in the studio, well the quarantine studio. Which is actually our various living areas and bedrooms and stuff, so yeah. We get down an dirty with VT race director extraordinaire Jonathan Vass and he gives us some unique takes on his outdoor events as well as his background in endurance sports. We do our Patreon shtick, Becky's insane …
 
Today we meet James Brinkman or Snickers. James, like me, was a member of the Class of 2019. Indeed, we met and had dinner in Erwin TN on our respective hikes. James' journey to the trail was somewhat tortuous, with a nasty accident as a young man and an addiction to pain killers messing up much of his early life. James is an inspiring example to a…
 
Today we are joined by Jean Muenchrath, mountaineer, escaper of death, author, and spiritual being. Simply put, Jean's story is remarkable. Jean gives us a play by play of the time she nearly died after catastrophic fall near Mt Whitney in winter conditions. She walks us through not only this harrowing tale, but the long process to physical, emotio…
 
We have local speedster Jeff Grant (and his even faster wife Mary-Louise Timmermans) checking in with us via Zoom to talk about all the FKTs they've bagged recently plus Becky getting awkward, yes- Fred's still running every day and Art being Art. Jimmy says something mildly controversial, starts a fire with his words. It's largely a Patreon shout …
 
Our main guest today is Melissa “Click!” Goodwin, a licensed outdoor guide and photographer. She is the founder of Girl Gotta Hike, which connects women with nature, confidence, and camaraderie, both online and on-trail through blog posts, podcast interviews, and guided hiking and backpacking trips in and around New York City. She and her dad, Mich…
 
In today's episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, we are once again flipping the script. This episode is dedicated to all things COVID-19. We chat with a pair of experts on infectious disease and epidemiology. Dr. Amesh Adalja is an infectious disease specialist at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security. And Jagdish Khu…
 
Hey. How are you doing these days? Did you hear that the Appalachian Trail is kinda closed? We figured if the AT is closed, we'll talk about other stuff right now. Plus we heard that Quarantine Podcasts are so hot right now, so we thought we'd jump on the bandwagon. We know this is a short episode, but we have at least one more coming out later thi…
 
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 …
 
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…
 
In this episode we interview Jessica Pearson and Joe West of TrailSpring. Find out how they're supporting their local mountain bike community by building amazing trail systems and hosting events. If you've ever wanted to know how to make an impact on two wheels, this one's for you! Tweet us and let us know what you think of this episode! @illuminec…
 
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…
