#38 | Legend on his Arizona Trail FKT, The Great Western Loop, and Supergluing His Foot Shut

In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, myself plus a special guest co-host are joined by Jeff "Legend" Garmire. He's back, and oh boy, does he have new stories to share, including the time he had to superglue his foot shut. We chat all about his previous year, which was arguably busier than anyone in the backpacking world, including his Great Western Loop, a 7,000 mile hike, and his recent Arizona Trail FKT. We go way deep on both of these hikes, when we're not filling the airwaves with laughter.So

#37 | Jenny & Scott Jurek on the Appalachian Trail Speed Record, Parenting, and What's Next

In 2015, Scott Jurek was the most talked about person on the Appalachian Trail, even the trail community at large. As soon as the legendary ultrarunner announced that he was bringing his talents to Appalachia, a flurry of fanfare and press followed suit. Though his record has been broken a pair of times since, the swell of attention has yet to be matched. Jabba and Badger sit down with Scott Jurek and his wife and head crew member, Jenny Jurek, to learn about his supported FKT.
