Podcasts 2017

I’ve come across some podcasts which I think are different from the mainstream, intelligent but not incomprehensible. Even if I disagree with the message the ideas presented in these podcasts are often thoughtful and interesting, sometimes shocking or dumb but funny.

Sounds of the Trail Podcast


This podcast will cause great discontentment with your day job. You will daydream about putting all your possessions in storage, loading up your backpack and going for a long walk.

At least two of the contributors hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2014 and the stories and interviews come from hikers on the PCT and Appalachian Trail while their hikes are in progress.

You can hear the excitement and pain in their voices. This is as close as you can get to the trail without getting out of your armchair.
