Happy 2nd Anniversary Episode: Repeat of Our First Interview (Sue Johnston April 12, 2017)

We’ve been doing GraniteGals for two years! To celebrate, we are repeating our first episode, an interview with living legend Sue Johnston. Many thanks for helping us kick off this podcast, Sue! We have now interviewed 29 incredible and intrepid White Mountain female hikers.

Enjoy the encore presentation!

Welcome to the first episode of GraniteGals, the podcast that celebrates the women who hike New Hampshire's mountains!

We are honored to have Sue Johnston as our first interviewee

.  Sue is a living legend -- she has accomplished a multitude of truly incredible athletic feats including, most recently, hiking the White Mountain Grid in one single calendar year.  That's hiking all 48 of NH's Four Thousand Footers during every single month of the year (576 ascents) --  all in one single calendar year.  Check out Sue's long list of other wonderful accomplishments on her blog, runsuerun.blogspot.com

We interviewed Sue at the lovely Abbie Greenleaf Library in Franconia, NH on April 12, 2017.  We asked Sue about the Grid, redlining the Whites, her experiences breaking the record for the fasted supported hike of the John Muir Trail in California, highpointing, the Cohos Trail, and bear encounters --  plus, we had a few non-hiking-related questions.  It was a wonderful conversation and we are so grateful for Sue's time. 

This is our first podcast and we are still getting used to the equipment and technology, so forgive the fact that this isn't quite NPR quality (yet!).

Pam Wilmot. April 27, 2017.

For our second podcast episode, we had the pleasure of interviewing Pam Wilmot, four-season White Mountain hiker and Appalachian Mountain Club group hiking leader.  We interviewed Pam at Common Cause Massachusetts in Boston, MA.  In this interview, we discuss everything from Pam's favorite Four Thousand Footers to her experiences on Rainier to her enjoyment guiding groups both here in the Whites and overseas.  It was a great interview, and we thank Pam for her time.  Click on the following for the link to the mp3 --
