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!

Wild Ideas ARE Indeed Worth Living!!!

I’ve been trying to find a podcast that truly resonated with my values, and spoke about the things that mattered to me; and I finally found it. Shelby’s podcast is super unique, funny, interesting, and most importantly INSPIRING.
She humbly converses for hours with some incredibly high profile legends in the adventure world, and goes deep.
Shelby is an absolute joy to listen to, and I’m stoked I found this podcast.
