In this the inaugural episode, David McFee talks to Jodie McLean about her 2016 Bibbulmun Track thru-hike. 

Modeled on the Appalachian Trail, the Bibbulmun Track opened in 1979 for Western Australia’s 150th anniversary. Extending from Kalamunda, just south of Perth, to Albany in the state’s southwest, the Bib Track as it is colloquially known, is 1,003.1 kilometres (623.3 mi) long.
