Stories from the Trail is a podcast by and for people who love to talk trail. We don't limit our conversations to hiking, but most of us are hikers and we'll probably go there a lot. Hosts Gary Sizer (aka "Green Giant", author of Where's the Next Shelter?) and Megan Thompson (aka "Voldemort") will bring you their conversations with people who live outside.

Just hanging with Gargan and Megary:)
Megan and Gary where such a delight to listen to. They have an awesome chemistry together. I have read both of Gary’s books and he is one of the best story tellers I have ever heard. A must listen for people who love good stories.
My new fave pod
I fell in love with Green Giant and Voldemort while reading Gary’s first book, Where’s The Next Shelter?. Now I get to listen to their stories and hear more from the trail. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode. Keep it up! Hoping to meet and maybe hike with you guys one day!
Enjoy The Format!
I find the format of this podcast to be quite refreshing! The presentation of the material is new and fresh, with the guest being to center of the show. Really love it!
