THE POX and PUSS PODCAST : An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Experience
22 minutes | 7 months ago
Pox & Puss Presents: Korean Baseball with Brad and Pox
Back in May, with very few sports on TV, Pox Holiday started recording and watching late-night Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) games on ESPN. After watching a few KBO games, Pox knew he had to contact the only friend he has who has been to a few of these games: past Pox & Puss Podcast guest, Brad! Trust us, once you've watched a KBO game or two, you'll probably have a lot of questions. Questions like, "Why are there so many cheerleaders and DJ's?" or "Is that a 7' tall dinosaur named 'Swole Daddy'?" or "Does everyone there have these dances memorized?" or "Didn't that guy used to play in the United States?" Brad takes time out of his morning to teach us about KBO customs, traditions, and beer delivered on backpacks. Yes folks, it's just a one-off episode about Korean Baseball with two guys who know very little about baseball, and even less about the KBO, but one guy lives in South Korea. This was recorded back in late May 2020, so some information, statistics, our opinions, etc. have changed.

O.P.P. 10 - The Quarantine Edition
Hey. How are you doing these days? Did you hear that the Appalachian Trail is kinda closed? We figured if the AT is closed, we'll talk about other stuff right now. Plus we heard that Quarantine Podcasts are so hot right now, so we thought we'd jump on the bandwagon. We know this is a short episode, but we have at least one more coming out later this week. Stay safe and wash your damn hands!

70 - Eavesdropping with Dan Koeppel
In this episode we talk with Dan Koeppel about his article "The Legend of Baltimore Jack" in Outside Magazine. Dan was searching for an article to write for Outside when it was suggested that he look into a hiker who had recently passed away named Baltimore Jack. But little did Dan know that Baltimore Jack was Adam Tarlin, a student who had written for the school newspaper with Dan while they were both attending Hampshire College. In our discussion, Dan talks about the various avenues he took to learn more about what made Adam Tarlin become Baltimore Jack. Koeppel interviewed Jack's friends, family members, and even Warren Doyle.Don't worry though, it isn't all serious...there is the usual Pox & Puss bullshittery. Be sure to check out Dan's book about the Banana, our original episodes with Baltimore Jack, #ChickenMath, and are Double Stuff Oreos too much? Check us out....

69 - Trail Days 2016 with Asiago and the 2013 Parade
Here it is…the final chapter in our 2016 Trail Days Interviews series. This time we have a quick discussion with Asiago about just how difficult it can be to get to Erie, PA. We talk about how disappointing “short cuts” are sometimes. Unfortunately, it was a short interview. So we dug deep into the Pox & Puss hard drives and wound up coming back with something even OLDER than these 2016 interviews. This segment was originally buried because the experience was too fresh and depressing. At the end of this episode we finally share our recounting of the 2013 Thru-Hiker Parade Tragedy. A big thank you to our sponsor for these past six episodes, HealthIQ.

66 - Trail Days 2016 Samsquatch
This is a warts-and-all episode. People have been asking us just to release the 2016 Trail Days interviews as-is…so here’s part one of six (or maybe seven?) Every year we set up in front of MoJoe’s Trailside Café we seem to interview at least one non-American. 2016 was no exception: Samsquatch is from the U.K. His girlfriend, Jade, didn’t want to talk. So she did what any good thru-hiker would do…she went to get some food. As a reminder, this was the year that Puss was violently ill and suddenly got sick inside of her car on the way to Trail Days. Through a friend, Puss met Samsquatch and his “Trail Family” the night before, so we were expecting him to come talk with us. Discussed: Another easy Visa story. Tennis, Football and Rugby queue-ing PEcan vs. PeCAN Samsquatch has to be the first person to ever call Gatlinburg “the greatest place ever”. Huge American portions! Red Velvet Belches Sweet Tea and Grits Someone gets locked inside a Dollar General bathroom. A story about Too Loud makes an appearance. And these nerds play Dungeons & Dragons on the Appalachian Trail.

65 - 110 Miles of Fun
After the first 110 miles of a northbound Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike, you should be jumping for joy that you've finally reached Franklin, NC. So why does Pox Holiday believe that he doesn't encounter that many "happy" hikers in this amazing Trail Town? Puss and Pox talk about the mental and physical aspects that play into your first couple of weeks on trail, and how to have fun in one of your first true Trail Towns. Don't worry, of course there is the usual nonsense that goes along with a Pox & Puss podcast!

62 - Duct Tape the National Parks
We thought this episode had been lost, but now it's found. This episode was recorded in September 2016...and then Pox's hard drive crashed. After hard work and some money, it was saved. Here we talk about Karl Metzger's record breaking Appalachian Trail FKT, ponies, a man named Duct Tape, and we work in something about the National Park System. Please forgive all incorrect information....there's a lot of it.

61 - Shane Mauss Breaks Both of His Heels
In 2014 Shane Mauss, a stand-up comedian, went for a hike in in Sedona, AZ...at the end of that hike, Shane had two broken heels. Shane has told this story on other podcasts, but we were the first to talk with him since he revisited the site of his "accident". Shane dubs this the “correction episode” after his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Shane admits that he might’ve accidentally embellished a bit about one part of the story he told on JRE. Shane is towards the beginning of a 75 (possibly 80) City Comedy Tour called “A Good Trip”, a "an hour and a half show that is part stand-up, part funny stories of experiences, and part Ted Talk". His tour is sponsored by the MAPS organization.
