Episode #3 of the "Jester" Section Hiker Podcast is dedicated to Jean Haigh. Jean Haigh was a beloved member of the Green Mountain Club and dedicated her life to hiking and the trails of Vermont. You will hear more about Jean after our guest interview.

In today's episode, you will hear from Janet Steinert aka "Slow 'n Steady". Janet is a retired educator, author, and speaker. As you will hear Janet will never, ever, ever, ever give up and comes from a line of strong women in her family. I hope you enjoy hearing from Janet as much as I did.
