Raging rivers, hungry bears, huge avalanches—no matter how prepared you are, a walk in the woods can go from innocent to disastrous in the blink of an eye. Out Alive is a podcast series about real people who survived the unsurvivable. Each survivor takes you through what happened, from the packing mistakes to the missed signals to the plain bad luck, while experts and witnesses weigh in on how things went wrong.

Thru-hiker, Scott "Hell Ya Jesus" Hughes, shares and explores what it really means to be Hiker Trash through personal anecdotes and interviews with hikers, adventurers and all those who challenge the status quo in Hiker Trash fashion
