Survival Sunday with Witchdoctor Joe Nichter
At this point, most people have heard of or watched the popular television series Naked and Afraid. In this edition of Survival Sunday on The Dirtwalker Outdoors Podcast, I have an interesting discussion with one of Naked and Afraid's most interesting, Joseph Nichter. Listen as Joe tells us about his experience on and off the camera, as well as the entertaining story of how he came to be featured on the Naked and Afraid show in the first place. Is that all? Not at all. There is far more to Joe Nichter than his appearance on a television show and he shares some insight into modern survivalism, unusual survival practices and skills, and his love and friendship with a unique tool. #survival #nakedandafraid #survivalism #wimhof #witchdoctorjoe

In this episode, we hear from Vince Strawbridge, the humble and passionate father and husband of the Strawbridge family of thru hikers who have each, and together, completed thru hiking's triple crown.

It is a marvelous story of an incredible family adventure that will have its place in hiking history.

Trail Talk with Squarepeg
In this episode of Trail Talk, I talk with David Alan Lane, or Squarepeg by trail name, about his current SOBO thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. I chose Squarepeg because of his genuine love for the AT, as well as the people on it. At fifty one years of age, he is on his fourth thru hike of the AT and continues to return, not only for the magnificent views, but to share with the community of people.

Adventure Seeker Krista Isaacson, or "Pockets"
Imagine taking that step...into somewhere else, with only a backpack on your back from which you live, and thrive. Imagine the immense challenge of crossing deserts, mountains, rocks, roads, ice, snow, and sun baked fields, and in doing so, hiking three thousand miles and more. For days at a time you might be alone. You would be cold, and wet. At times it will rain for days, and yet, at others, when you wish a rain cloud would block out the sun's glare, it will not rain at all. Imagine the slippery, ice and slush, snow covered, rocky trail that you must cross just to find a place to pitch your tent and camp for the night. That, is an image of thru hiking. In this episode, I interview Pockets, or Krista, of Krista's CDT 2021 Adventure on Facebook, and hear of the challenges, trials, and excitement she experiences while thru hiking the greater than three thousand mile, Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. You will not be disappointed.

Adventure Seeker Ellen Falterman
Rivers. They carry life from mountains to oceans, toiling and rolling in complete freedom without natural constraint. The majesty of a river swells the current of our own hearts and souls. This episode features the indomitable, Ellen Falterman, a twenty six year old adventurer that understands the call of the river, and also, the big blue water of our earth's oceans. In just her tiny canoe, she has accepted the challenge of thousands of miles of river water, and now looks further, to row upon the surface of the depths, and experience life as only she can. I captured her words here for an interview in this first episode of Adventure Seekers on this new podcast, Dirtwalker Outdoors.

Dirtwalker Outdoors Introductory Episode
This is the beginning. The introduction. It is recorded through a phone microphone, so the quality may not be excellent, but it gets my point across. This episode starts and explains what hope will be a long lasting and successful podcast. I explain to you the three segments of the Dirtwalker Outdoors podcast. Those are, Adventure Seekers, Survival Sunday, and Trail Talk. These three interesting segments combined with the amazing guests I hope to feature, should make this podcast worth listening to, and possibly inspiring.
