THE POX and PUSS PODCAST : An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Experience (general)

This is a warts-and-all episode.
People have been asking us just to release the 2016 Trail Days interviews as-is…so here’s part one of six (or maybe seven?)

Every year we set up in front of MoJoe’s Trailside Café we seem to interview at least one non-American. 2016 was no exception: Samsquatch is from the U.K.

His girlfriend, Jade, didn’t want to talk.
So she did what any good thru-hiker would do…she went to get some food.

As a reminder, this was the year that Puss was violently ill and suddenly got sick inside of her car on the way to Trail Days.
Through a friend, Puss met Samsquatch and his “Trail Family” the night before, so we were expecting him to come talk with us.


Another easy Visa story.

After the first 110 miles of a northbound Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike, you should be jumping for joy that you've finally reached Franklin, NC.
So why does Pox Holiday believe that he doesn't encounter that many "happy" hikers in this amazing Trail Town?

Puss and Pox talk about the mental and physical aspects that play into your first couple of weeks on trail, and how to have fun in one of your first true Trail Towns.

Don't worry, of course there is the usual nonsense that goes along with a Pox & Puss podcast!

62 - Duct Tape the National Parks

We thought this episode had been lost, but now it's found.

This episode was recorded in September 2016...and then Pox's hard drive crashed.

After hard work and some money, it was saved.

Here we talk about Karl Metzger's record breaking Appalachian Trail FKT, ponies, a man named Duct Tape, and we work in something about the National Park System.

Please forgive all incorrect information....there's a lot of it.

61 - Shane Mauss Breaks Both of His Heels

In 2014 Shane Mauss, a stand-up comedian, went for a hike in in Sedona, the end of that hike, Shane had two broken heels.

Shane has told this story on other podcasts, but we were the first to talk with him since he revisited the site of his "accident".

Shane dubs this the “correction episode” after his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Shane admits that he might’ve accidentally embellished a bit about one part of the story he told on JRE.

Shane is towards the beginning of a 75 (possibly 80) City Comedy Tour called “A Good Trip”, a "an hour and a half show that is part stand-up, part funny stories of experiences, and part Ted Talk".

His tour is sponsored by the MAPS organization.
