#101 | How to Solve the Adirondack’s Overuse Problem with James Appleton

January 5th, 2021

James Appleton, host of The 46 of 46 Podcast comes on for his second Trail Tales episode. We spent most of this episode talking about the 'overuse' issue in the Adirondack High Peaks....although calling it such is a massive simplification. James lives in the Adirondack Park, and thus has some unique and valuable views on the subject. Even if you do not hike in the Adirondacks, I think there is a lot to learn in this episode, especially as public hiking trails have started to see an increase in traffic over the years.

#99 | The White Mountains are a Photographer’s dream with Corey McMullen

December 15th, 2020

One of my favorite photographer's based in the White Mountains, Corey McMullen joins the show! I pick his brain about living in North Conway, which is a fantasy of mine lmao, and of course we spend a lot of time talking about the process behind his amazing photos. If you're not a photographer then don't worry; I really tried to ask more generalized questions about his process, rather than diving into the technical details...but if you like that stuff, I did ask a few technical questions as well.

#92 | A 2020 Appalachian Trail thru hiker answers TOUGH questions about Covid with Rune Ravn

October 20th, 2020

It's no secret that thru hiking in 2020 is a very controversial topic. I usually try to stay out of controversial issues, but due to a number of listeners who reached out to me (and my own curiosity) I finally cracked... I present to you, and interview with Rune Ravn, a 2020 Appalachian Trail thru hiker. I ask Rune to tell his story, and ask him a number of tough questions about covid and the ethics of hiking during the pandemic. I believe it's very important to hear all sides of the story, so I hope you will listen with an open mind. Check out his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/JustAboveU
