After that, Jonathan and Mark chat about long distance hiking and their dreams for the future.

  1. great interview! Cannibal is so much fun in person, and it comes through very well in this episode. Funny though he didn’t talk about his experience hiking with a woman in Florida who like to stroll along nekked!
