#43 | Thru-Hiking the PCT and Starting the Byland Podcast with Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hiker Emory Wanger


Emory Wanger, who hosts the Byland Podcast, joins the show this week to talk about thru hiking the PCT, backpack-hunting, and of course... podcasting! We jumped all around in this one, and it was almost therapeutic for me to discuss the behind the scenes details of starting and maintaining a podcast within the hiking/backpacking/thru hiking world that we both exist in. Of course, it was also great to hear about thru-hiking the PCT, and everything else Emory had to say! If you like Trail Tales, you will for sure like Byland, so go check it out at
