An insightful and inspiring podcast for all hikers and hikers-to-be. Better than a walk in the woods. :)
I love your podcasts! I am trying to find the one with Cookie Monster and her husband. He bragged about her food so much that I wanted to look up her recipes but I can no longer find the podcast. Can you help please. Thank you for all the work you do on your podcasts!
Recently found this podcast and I am enjoying every episode. I love the combination of interviews with experienced hikers with the reading of Steve’s book. I am binge listening as fast as I can!
What a well done show! Steve is so well prepared and engaging. He could cary a show on any topic, I believe. I’m glad he chose the AT and hiking - very inspiring and encouraging.
Whether you’re a rabid thru hiker or just a day hiker in your own mind, Steve’s show is a great listen. He has a wide variety of hikers and gear suppliers as guests, and provides ideas and options for your outdoor and trail life. His self-effacing presentation is entertaining and gives you the feeling that if you can hike 200 yards without requiring a hit of oxygen, you can thru hike as well. Cheers!
Thanks Mighty Blue for the opportunity to talk with you about my 2020 AT Thru Hike! It is an honor to be on your show. Hope your hike is going well! PTL!
Great interview with our worthy leader, Trail Dust. Much love from the first 2 women in 2012, “Laverne and Shirley”.
Steve brings his British charm and wit to this wonderful podcast. I don’t miss an episode!
Many many many, years ago I read a book about the Appalachian trail. I had a desire to hike it but life got in the way & time passed. Now at 77 with frail bones it isn’t possible. But I do love listening to you & your guest. Karen
This is one of the first podcasts I found when I was researching hiking the trail. I grew up hiking the New Hampshire main part of the trail never thought I do the whole thing. Now that I’m close to retirement I’m getting ready to do it. These podcasts our inspiration for us OG’s
The stories, accomplishments, and struggles of the hikers interviewed are often inspiring, funny, and insightful. Steve, the host, is thoughtful in his interviews and makes each of them interesting. While I don’t hike, I never miss a show. Recently, I found his Hiking Radio Network and have started to listen to one of the women hiker hosts. Great stuff.
Steve Adams (“Mighty Blue”) is a must listen of you’re at all interested in the hiking community in general and/or the Appalachian Trail in particular. His inciteful questions draw-out the guests and make each show something truly special! Plus, he has a cool accent!
Exactly what I was looking for. AT and beyond. Tips and tricks! Perfect balance of history, tips, and host/guest experiences.
This podcast has gotten me through physical therapy for knee issues, dog walks, meal cooking and dish washing. I’ll keep going now as I attempt to prepare for a section hike of the Foothills Trail this fall with my husband. We are just a few years years you get than Mighty Blue, and this podcast has encouraged me to reach for some more backpacking adventures! Thank you, MB!
If your a hiker you got to listen to this podcast
Great job Ryan. I look forward to your input. As always, a great show. I look forward to this each week. Thanks Mighty Blue for providing a great transition!
A friend encouraged me to listen in and I’ve been hooked for about 6 months. Look forward to each week! I got to share a story with Steve aka Mighty Blue and it was a lot of fun. Enjoy listening in my car!
I just discovered Steve’s podcast and I’ve treated like a new show I love on Netflix and binge “watched”! I’m up to episode 7 in 24 hours! I’m inspired - retiring next year at age 58 and have long dreamed of this adventure and the stories and tips have convinced me I can do this! Thanks Steve! So glad there are so many episode to listen to and enjoying the book mixed in VERY much!
Mighty Blue is quite simply the best at his craft. Appreciate his wisdom and graciousness, even under the critique of S.M.’s pontificating
I’ve been going back and listening to Mighty Blue’s 2019 thru hike episodes and it’s such a treat. He is honest and thorough and interviews some super interesting people. You feel like you’re having a conversation with a friend. Thankful for this amazing podcast!
I'm in the process of listening to the entire catalogue of episodes. Though I'm only a quarter of the way through them, I can't say enough as to how enjoyable I'm finding this podcast. Mighty Blue and his guests are engaging and all share that same passion for the AT that draws the listener in. There's no point in waiting to finish all of the episodes to give this podcast the rating it deserves. Thanks for inspiring all of us future NOBOS and SOBOS.
Great podcast, reconnects me with the AT!!Steve has wonderful guests and asks the best questions!
I discovered your podcasts by accident while doing a training hike for section hikes of the AT. Ironically I listened as I was going up my steepest climb of the day and you were talking about how strenuous hiking the AT was. You give real world explanations of the physical, mental and financial costs of the AT. I and others appreciate that. Your experience and willingness to pass on knowledge is invaluable to someone like me contemplating a through hike. Thanks again...trail name “off-road”
I have only begun to listen to Steve’s story and interviews. As an aspiring thru hiker and a near member of AARP, I appreciate his candor and humor at tackling this tremendous feat. Looking forward to lots of hours being inspired and educated to take my first step on the trail. Thanks, Steve.
This is a podcast about people and stories. Mighty Blue, the host, is just a nice and engaging guy. He also seems like an interesting guy who has a talent for finding the interesting aspects of anyone’s life. I don’t think that this is a podcast about hiking in so much as it is a podcast about the people who enjoy hiking. The two are not entirely separable, but on the spectrum this is much more person focused than trail focused, and the host does is wonderful at engaging people.
