Raging rivers, hungry bears, huge avalanches—no matter how prepared you are, a walk in the woods can go from innocent to disastrous in the blink of an eye. Out Alive is a podcast series about real people who survived the unsurvivable. Each survivor takes you through what happened, from the packing mistakes to the missed signals to the plain bad luck, while experts and witnesses weigh in on how things went wrong.
 
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.

Topics include but are not limited to news, trail culture, interviews, gear, advice, and all you can eat buffets.

What the hell is "Hiker Trash?" Some wear the term as a badge of honor, others use it in disgust, but Hiker Trash is more than a mere adjective for a dirty thru-hiker. Hiker Trash is a philosophy, a way of life, potentially even a catalyst for finding meaning. Thru-hiker, Scott "Hell Ya Jesus" Hughes, shares and explores what it really means to be Hiker Trash through personal anecdotes and interviews with hikers, adventurers and all those who challenge the status quo in Hiker Trash fashion
