This episode was a bit of a different one and way more personal than the usual episodes. Having watched the wrong episode and having some personal life things in the way, we wanted to make an episode, but had to go a bit off the beaten path.
I love walking and do it a lot, despite my hobbit-like figure. I’m a fan of wandering the South Downs and had a lot of questions for Miles about how it is to walk in America. He’s a fellow Brightonian and used to the many hills of our fair city (although it may come off a bit less than fair in the episode, admittedly), so I figured it’d be a good perspective.
We also got into Miles’ first encounter with the big roads and an Ed Gein type situation, my anxiety walks at night. As I said, it got oddly personal. We both share a bit in the regular episodes, more so here.
Our inspiration for this episode was Jay & Miles Xplain the X-Men who space out their edited episodes with “Hawk Talk” where they don’t edit and talk about any subject. We’ll return to this concept again in the future. I’m not sure if it’ll be every five episodes or just any time we get under pressure. Because I’m me and we’re still getting used to the pace & technology, I have edited this episode, but cutting the extra time for prep definitely helped us catch up.
