Hey. How are you doing these days? Did you hear that the Appalachian Trail is kinda closed? We figured if the AT is closed, we'll talk about other stuff right now. Plus we heard that Quarantine Podcasts are so hot right now, so we thought we'd jump on the bandwagon. We know this is a short episode, but we have at least one more coming out later this week. Stay safe and wash your damn hands!
In this episode we talk with Dan Koeppel about his article "The Legend of Baltimore Jack" in Outside Magazine. Dan was searching for an article to write for Outside when it was suggested that he look into a hiker who had recently passed away named Baltimore Jack. But little did Dan know that Baltimore Jack was Adam Tarlin, a student who had written for the school newspaper with Dan while they were both attending Hampshire College. In our discussion, Dan talks about the various avenues he took to learn more about what made Adam Tarlin become Baltimore Jack. Koeppel interviewed Jack's friends, family members, and even Warren Doyle.Don't worry though, it isn't all serious...there is the usual Pox & Puss bullshittery. Be sure to check out Dan's book about the Banana, our original episodes with Baltimore Jack, #ChickenMath, and are Double Stuff Oreos too much? Check us out....

Here it is…the final chapter in our 2016 Trail Days Interviews series. This time we have a quick discussion with Asiago about just how difficult it can be to get to Erie, PA. We talk about how disappointing “short cuts” are sometimes. Unfortunately, it was a short interview. So we dug deep into the Pox & Puss hard drives and wound up coming back with something even OLDER than these 2016 interviews. This segment was originally buried because the experience was too fresh and depressing. At the end of this episode we finally share our recounting of the 2013 Thru-Hiker Parade Tragedy. A big thank you to our sponsor for these past six episodes, HealthIQ.
