My new dub track

066-Technology on the trail-staying in touch with family and friends

Show Notes

In episode 066 of the Australian Hiker podcast we discuss technology on the trail, specifically options for staying in touch with family and friends at home while on a hike. This topic is one I have been thinking about for well over a year as I decide what I will use for my own Bibbulmun Track through hike later this year when I will be out of cellular range on a number of days on my 5-6 week hike.

Listening to the Australian Hiker Podcast

What is a Podcast?

While many people are familiar with podcasts, to some the term is still an unknown. So what is a podcast? The best way to think of a podcast is as digital radio on demand. You get to listen to a program of your choice, at a time of your choosing, and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
