Ep. 455: "Wildland," a Documentary Alongside Firefighters - Alex Jablonski


When director Alex Jablonski wanted to film wildland firefighters up close and personal, he needed to become one himself.

Listen in as Alex and I discuss what it was like to become a firefighter, be accepted by the group and ultimately witness many of the guys go from boys to men.

Ep. 454: Running a University and 170 miles - Scott Wyatt


Today's Life Outside the Box episode takes us into the world of adventure coupled with academia. Scott Wyatt is the president of Southern Utah University, also known as the "University of the Parks." Being an avid mountaineer and ultrarunner himself, Scott knows the teaching power of nature and incorporates that power into every aspect of life on campus for students and faculty at SUU. This was an incredible conversation about adventure, grit, a lifetime of learning, and the healing power of the wonderful and awesome outdoors from someone leading the charge in getting college campuses to take advantage of nearby adventure.

Ep. 453: Everything You Need to Know About Bears Revisited- Mike McIntosh


Did you know that bears don't actually growl as Hollywood has you believe? In fact, in most movies, a bear growl is actually a wolf growl. Did you also know that a dog on a leash is a great bear deterrent, but a dog off its leash is a great way to have yourself a bear encounter? In this episode Mike McIntosh, of the Bear With Us Sanctuary Rehabilitation Center, helps us understand what we need to know about living with bears while playing in the wild.

Dan Keeley is on a mission to raise awareness for depression and bipolar disorder by running 1,250 miles self-supported from Rome to London. It's called Rome to Home. In the summer of 2012 he experienced a full-blown manic episode – an episode which culminated with him believing he was ‘the chosen one’ and preaching from the central lane of a major motorway in Italy at rush hour. What followed was a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, time spent in psychiatric wards both in Italy and the UK, and the inevitable crippling depression which found him wanting to take my his own life. It has been 5 years now and Dan is doing awesome! He has a new lease on life and is using it to its fullest. Listen in to learn about Dan, his wild trip through this ordeal and what he is doing now to bring attention to this issue. There could not be a nicer guy to help us understand what people with depression are going through.

Ep. 447: Reshaping Your Identity After Injury - Bart Laemmel


At some point in the pursuit of our adventure sports, we will have an injury. As we get older those injuries and the slowing of our bodies can compile to limit our abilities drastically. Who are you as a person if you couldn't do your adventure sport(s) anymore? Are you willing to think about how much of your identity is wrapped in what you can achieve athletically? 

Today's episode discusses the challenges and beauty that limitations can bring if we're willing to remain positive and look for opportunities to discover new passions. I hope you enjoy Bart's story about reshaping his identity and discovering new adventure sports as his body "directs" him.

Free Soloing is definitely stupid in a lot of ways. We don't condone the sport. However, Austin Howell struck me as particularly calculated and contemplative in his approach to soloing. Listen in on what goes on in the mind of a free soloist and Austin's thoughts on why the danger is not his forte nor his focus.

Ep. 440: How a Lyft Ride and a Trip to Disney Led to Starting a Himalayan Trekking Company - Mark Johnson


When most people go to Disney World they're not really inspired to go and start a trekking company halfway around the actual world. As you'll learn from this episode, Mark is not most people. In fact, that trip to Disney coupled with a Lyft ride was enough for him and his wife, Holly, to totally transform their lives to pursue a dream that seemed impossible, especially to the folks around them in rural Tennessee. I hope you're as inspired as I am after hearing about this amazing adventure that should prove to us that anything is possible from anywhere, you just have to start moving.

Ep. 437: Life Outside the Box - First Solo Human-Powered Circumnavigation of the Globe - Erden Eruc


Erden Eruc has a world-class adventure resume. With 15 Guinness World Records, tens of thousands of miles of first-ever human-powered achievements, and an emotional story that started his journeys, you'd think he'd have a best-selling book and endless speaking engagements by now. As you'll hear, none of these things have come into fruition for Erden. It has been a grind from the beginning to the present. However, that hasn't crushed his thirst for adventure and need for bigger and bigger challenges. It certainly hasn't taken away from the amazing feats Erden has accomplished. Actually, the fact he doesn't have huge sponsors and crowds of fans makes his motivation all the more impressive.

What are you willing to go through to chase your dream? Will it be worth it in the end? Listen in on today's episode from someone who knows how lonely it can be on the top.
