Day One, and already she was lying in her journal.
It was 1993, Suzanne Roberts had just finished college, and when her friend suggested they hike California’s John Muir Trail, the adventure sounded like the perfect distraction from a difficult home life and thoughts about the future.
But she never imagined that the twenty-eight-day hike would change her life. Part memoir, part nature writing, part travelogue, Almost Somewhere is Roberts’s account of that hike. …
On this episode we connect with cyclists Maddy and Charlie, two Princeton students who cycled 3500 miles across the US from New Jersey to Washington to raise money for mental health.
We learn how the two quickly ditched their original route plans and decided to take the journey day by day, with their sights set on Chicago, Black Hills, and Yellowstone. This epic adventure saw the two college athletes crashing with friends, staying at hotels, and camping along the way.
Learn more about how they managed their gear, how they gained enough confidence to tackle just about any mountain that stood before them, and the incredible highlights of this cross-country ride that took them through the Appalachians and the Rockies.

A good book. And important look at the role of parents in the raising of their children.
The Adventurer’s Son is Roman Dial’s extraordinary account of his two-year quest to unravel the mystery of his son’s disappearance in the jungles of Costa Rica.
… Before he left, Cody Roman Dial emailed his father: “I am not sure how long it will take me, but I’m planning on doing 4 days in the jungle and a day to walk out. I’ll be bounded by a trail to the west and the coast everywhere else, so it should be difficult to get lost forever.”
They were the last words Dial received from his son.
… Roman had raised his son to be fearless, to be at home in earth’s wildest places, travelling together through rugged Alaska to remote Borneo and Bhutan. Was he responsible for his son’s fate? Or, as he hoped, was Cody Roman safe and using his wilderness skills on a solo adventure from which he would emerge at any moment?
Joe Pickett’s been hired to investigate one of the most cold-blooded mass killings in Wyoming history.
Attorney Clay McCann admitted to slaughtering four campers in a back-country corner of Yellowstone National Park—a “free-fire” zone with no residents or jurisdiction.
In this remote fifty-square-mile stretch a man can literally get away with murder. Now McCann’s a free man, and Pickett’s about to discover his motive—one buried in Yellowstone’s rugged terrain, and as dangerous as the man who wants to keep it hidden.
