Inspiring! Ye-ooo ;)

Hi Shelby, I started your podcast from episode 1 and I just love it! It’s inspiring, motivating, and a great outdoor show. I always feel stoked after a listen. Your interview style is excellent. I love when you ask your guests the advice they'd give their younger selves and to listeners. Thanks so much. Keep it up! Cheers!

Game Changer

An absolutely phenomenal podcast. Episode #105 and #108 have been on my mind since the day I listened to them. Although I wish I found this podcast sooner I am so grateful I’m hooked now.

Shout out to Dr. Eger for being such a light for so many people and sharing just a brief ray of that light on your show Shelby, really helps me keep in the right mindset every day now.

And to Steve Bramucci, great energy and I would love to hear more of his presentations! In the summer camp world story telling is 90%of your day.

Shelby!! You’re so fun to listen to and I look forward to attempt to catch up to current episodeS!
