This week, producer Tollak Hansen and host Matthew Workman hike to a place commonly known as Slave's Peak. (Note: the history surrounding this peak is a bit dubious) We take in some scenery, hop over some creeks, and in the end, learn a little something about ourselves. The hike took over two hours, but you can experience it all in just 20 minutes.
