The "Jester" Section Hiker is the premier podcast with the spotlight on section hikers!

The stories you will hear are about everyday people who, in addition to their everyday lives, make the commitment to hike long-distance trails where every section is a new beginning. 

From National Scenic Trails to National Parks and all Trails in between, listen with your host, Julie “Jester” Gayheart, to hear what it means to be a section hiker and the adventure that awaits them section by section.

Jester and Austin are back to look into the creative process for hiking, filming, and storytelling. Over the last few years, it has become more and more popular to film your hikes and share over on YouTube, and many hikers are posting daily while on their journeys. For Austin, it has "just become part of the hike."


Austin walks us through his filming process by sharing the camera gear he uses, style of shots he likes to take, and editing process by using music and voiceovers. Austin likes to hike and paddle, film while out there, and then when he's back home, create a story. And you can tell in his videos he puts in a lot of time and effort to make sure things are just right!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
