Something to Talk About – Bonnie Raitt

About 40 days out from starting my hike and I’m getting in trail mode. Making lists checking them twice. I don’t read blog obsessively like I did before the PCT anymore. However, I might checkout a hiking movie or two, listen to some podcasts. I really got into podcasts on the CDT, I like listening while I hike. My mind flows differently when I’m hiking, ideas come in waves, creativity is stirred. Listening to podcast reminds me of  times gone by when people would sit around the radio to listen to a show, you know like before tv. Listening while I hike, I can let my mind imagine the stories in vivid color, get wild ideas about my next adventure and learn some things. 

So I thought I’d share a few of my favorites that you might want to check out. Do you have any you might recommend?

  1. Last night, I finished watching “6 Million Steps: A Journey Inward” on Amazon Prime…Great PCT Movie 🙂

  2. Ooh, thanks for the recs – there are a few here I hadn’t heard of. I’ll add them to my ever-expanding to-listen list!

    In terms of outdoorsy audio, I listen to Off Track (, Mountain ( and Tough Girl ( And I should probably spruik Queer Out Here, too, as I’m an editor (there’s only one issue of the audio zine so far, but it’s long:

    Good luck with your prep!
