Special thanks to Lee Thomason, a seasoned hiker that connected us to these stories. Our photographer is Teresa Cunningham. Recorded, edited and produced by Regina Revazova of Open Conversation.

Kevyn Rene Calvo Miranda is from Mexico. We first met a couple of years back, by the Piestewa Peak Summit trailhead. He lost nearly two hundred pounds walking the trails regularly, he shared. It spiked my interest in his story at first but... something happened later and entirely altered our conversation.

Moving up the career ladder is normally celebrated in our society. Yet some of us lose a lot along the way; lose slowly and invisibly for others. And, sometimes, one needs to wipe the slate clean to regain the lost aspects of... themselves. This is David Metzler's story.

Sheridan Correa and I met through Lee Thomason, our friend in common and a fellow hiker. Sheridan strikes with the type of joy that is rare in humans to exhibit in day-to-day regular settings: vibrant, radiating, contagious joy and an immense love for life.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
