In-Depth and Well Made

This podcast is fantastic and extremely helpful if you are looking to gain knowledge in the area of backpacking. It’s clear the creator of this podcast has plenty of experience on the trail.

Great information about synthetic insulation

Really enjoyed the podcast. Learned a lot about pros and cons of down and synthetic insulation. How different activities and different environments have different solutions (i.e. what works best in given conditions.) Looking forward to future episodes.

In depth!

Great podcast, very informative. The DCF episode had the look of one of the most boring podcasts you could ever listen to, but was EXCELLENT, both in information to be gleaned and fairness to each school of thought.

The one real criticism I have to offer has to do with episode 5. The subject matter is of high interest to me, because I’ve spent a great deal of time “off trail”. The questions raised by the BPL crew were insightful and showed great depth of observation during the trip itself, so as a discussion, it was very well run, as per normal. However, though he is clearly not an unintelligent person, the guest said “uhhmmm” and “uhhhh” so often (it’s quite possible that he spent more time saying those two words than all his other words combined) that it makes the podcast into a sort of aural water torture. Perhaps a little coaching in the art of public discussion could help certain guests present themselves in a less grating manner.

Other than that, I can’t say enough good things about this podcast, and I look forward to each new episode!
