Shanti does a great job at creating a podcast that emulates all that a hike with Hike It Baby include. Meaningful, nonjudgmental conversation with strangers who quickly become dear friends. Hiking and podcasts are what have helped me thrive in this often rocky role of motherhood. I hope Shanti finds time in busy schedule to record more!
I absolutely love this podcast! It is so inspiring to me and helps me realize that when I have a child I can still hike and camp and show my child the outdoors. Thanks!!
