Join Steve Adams as he welcomes a range of terrific guests to his show each week.
After the main interview, Steve often has another conversation, normally with a hiker on trail, then finishes the episode with a chapter from the latest hiking book that he’s reading. Along the way, we all seem to laugh a lot!!

Getting to know each other–on a thru-hike
Author / Podcaster / Speaker
I'm Steve Adams, or Mighty Blue, and I'm the MOST unlikely hiker you could imagine. I spent more than 40 years in the insurance business, in London, Bermuda, New York, and Florida. I sold my insurance business in 2013 to prepare an Appalachian Trail thru-hike, something I'd had at the #1 spot on my Bucket List for years. To my great surprise–and the shock of many of my friends–I did it, summitting Katahdin just over six months after I'd set out.
Eventually, after plenty of stopping and starting, I managed to complete my AT book(s) and started this podcast. More than five years in, we've published nearly 300 episodes of the podcast.
In 2018, my niece and I completed the Camino de Santiago in Spain, then in 2019 I went on my second successful AT thru-hike.
