Today we are joined by comedy legend, Kevin Nealon. In
case you've been living under a rock for for the last 30 years,
Kevin Nealon is famous for his years on Saturday Night Live, his
character on Weeds, he's a popular standup comedian, he's been in a
slew of movies, and he's now the host of his own YouTube show,
Hiking with Kevin. Kevin
insisted that we do the interview in the back of our camper van,
and he regales us with tales from his time at SNL, how one of his
popular sketches almost turned into a musical produced by Arnold
Schwarzenegger, his favorite Chris Farley story, that time he
helped deliver his son, along with his favorite hiking spots around
Chaunce and I also get into the dumbest items we've carried on a
thru-hike, which way to wipe, we have a triple crown of music to
get you through a miserable climb, and get some much needed horse
