Manage episode 231434936 series 2484930
The shows leading up to today's served a necessary role. They introduced us to our 2019 hikers. We got to meet the vast array of personalities trekking across the country, and learn a good deal about the motives behind these epic journeys.
But, I like to think that these entries were just this season's hors d'oeuvres.
Today's show begins our main entree. Today's show features our first updates from the trail.
In this episode, you'll receive a pair of entries from our Correspondents.
The first actually comes the night before they hit the trail. This likely comes as no surprise, but this is a time when emotions are flowing like a firehose. Whether it's excitement, anxiety, or a combination of the two, our hikers' long awaited treks are just one bad night of sleep away. And the second recording comes from the end of their first day on trail, where they're given a blank slate to talk about whatever most inspires them.FIND US ON ITUNES | FIND US ON GOOGLE PLAY | FIND US ON STITCHER
