An exploration of outdoor adventure as a metaphor for life. Every other week, we talk to players in the outdoor and nonprofit world; in land conservation, recreation, and education to uncover stories that make the world a better place.
Rather than prescription, these stories serve as lessons and inspiration. Past guests have won Olympic Gold (Kikkan Randall), are empowering survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault through therapy and mountain biking (Jeannine Anders), and make adaptive sports accessible to the backcountry (Vasu Sojitra).
This show is for those who prefer to define your own idea of success and break trail to get there.

Hi, everyone, the Gear Show podcast is back after a month break and I’m excited. We took some time to refuel on some great interviews and fascinating topics such as living on free breakfast burritos to finally land the dream job and dream life, how to be a dirtbag shopper, and being a sustainable adventurer.

If we’re being honest, which I always am, I have no desire to do a half or full Ironman. My friend Celeste finished hers in June 2016 and I was at the finish cheering her on. Her first words to me when she exited the finish chute: That sucked. It confirmed for me that my best […]

Today’s episode might change the way you think about hydrating. I think I’d rather be hungry than thirsty. There are different degrees of both, so I can’t say this with certainty. But I remember a time in elementary school we went on a field trip and at the end of the day, I was so […]
