Inspired by the National Parks Service's 100th Anniversary and a hike-preventing injury, Allison M Keating teamed up with experimental composer and podcast creator Justin Asher to create Hiking Podcast, hikes best taken in the mind’s eye. Close your eyes and listen. While you lose your body, your mind will traverse a desert dream hike led by Allison. Encounter trails and peaks, mine-shafts and birds, ALIENS. Consider your health, stillness vs. motion, the migration of artists to The West, human expansion, the dichotomy of the National Park System, nudity.
Hiking Podcast is appropriate for children 13+.
