Ep. 5 - Hiker Correspondents

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

Thomas Zorich in the White Mountains (NH)

One hike is not enough per podcast. That's why Broken Laces has organized its own team of hiker correspondents ("news team assemble!).

Thomas - an Alaskan native - resides in the northeast and was a hiking partner of Riley's for several years in North Carolina. And Mike, whose gait rivals that of an Avatar, is a runner first, hiker second, but has hiked many trails in the Pacific Northwest. They share some local parks in their communities that have multiple uses, are kid and dog friendly, and are not well traveled to considering the metropolitan areas (Boston & the Bay Area, respectively) they live in. Plus, they both "dad out" on some hiking strollers and child carriers.
