Unlikely Hikers Podcast & LIVE Show

As we face this unprecedented time for most of us during the COVID-19 pandemic, connection, community, truth and storytelling feel more important than ever. I’ve always wanted to start an Unlikely Hikers podcast and I’ve suddenly found myself with more time than is good for me. I have no experience, so why not just throw myself into this and do it live? It’s raw and imperfect and beautifully human. Scroll down for the episodes!

CHANGES: After our June 2nd episode, we will be taking a 2-week break and switching to every other Wednesday. Next episodes will be June 17, July 1, July 15, etc. dates will vary further when it’s safe to begin traveling again.

Our May 26th show will discuss how to #recreateresponsibly during COVID-19!

Simplified Graphic of Recreate Responsibly GuidelinesOn the next episode of the Unlikely Hikers Podcast, supported by REI, we will be talking about outdoor recreation during COVID-19 with Taldi Harrison of the Recreate Responsibly Coalition, and Chip Jenkins, superintendent of Mount Rainier National Park.

What does responsible re-entry look like for you as parks begin re-opening? If they never closed where you are, what precautions have you been taking to #recreateresponsibly?

Or, for those of us who live in population-dense areas where outdoor recreation and hiking are popular, maybe you’re like me and sort of frozen with fear over where we can actually go to avoid overcrowded trails.

Bring all of your questions and hacks and join the conversation! Or, if you can’t make it, send your questions now to: me@jennybruso.com
