    Rekindling the Spark

    Rekindling the Spark

    We’re told to follow our dreams. But often, that’s disappointing. Reality typically doesn’t measure up to what we’d imagined. So what then? How do you reignite your passions?
    On this episode, we travel from an observatory in Puerto Rico to a hillside in New Jersey, and explore how one scientist overcame the disillusionment of academia.

    Closing the Gender Gap

    Closing the Gender Gap

    Women are often told we can do anything we want in life: ride bikes, scale cliffs, surf waves. But in some areas of outdoor recreation, the gender gap remains shockingly large.
    In this episode, we visit a women’s mountain bike camp in Wyoming and explore what’s really needed to get people of all genders on equal footing.

My escape - And grounding - podcast

I love Out There. Now that I work from home, I get my morning exercise taking my dog for long walks by the river or through trails and streets with mature trees. In the mornings, I take the time to catch up on news, international events and opinions. But I “save” Out there for special times… when I need a mental break, need to relax and to motivate myself. I listen as a special treat when I need to escape the complex world and look for freshness and inspiration in the world and nature. Thank you for this beautiful podcast. It brings me so much joy.

Love the stories not the interruption

I’m not interested in the narration from the host. Just let the subject talk.
Also so much unessacary music. I just want the story. NO MORE NARRATION
