    Athletic Brewing Company Founder, Bill Shufelt

    Athletic Brewing Company is a fast-growing brand in an emerging category that is about to blow up: non-alcoholic craft beer. So we talked to Athletic Brewing’s founder about why he started the company; the stigma of not drinking; why “near beer” has been so bad; why there’s such a need for products like this in the outdoors community; Athletic’s brewing process; how he feels about the emerging competition in the space; and more.

    Mali Noyes & Lani Bruntz ski The Wurl

    Mali Noyes & Lani Bruntz ski The Wurl

    The Wurl — The Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup — has gained quite a lot of attention in the trail running and climbing worlds, but it had never been done in the winter, and Mali Noyes and Lani Bruntz set out to change that.
    So we recently talked with Mali and Lani about their respective backgrounds, the origins of this idea to ski The Wurl, and then we dive into the planning and logistics and scouting and spreadsheets (do not underestimate the importance of spreadsheets!) that happened behind the scenes and well before they set out on their mission. 
    After the conversation, head over to Salomon TV to watch the short film of Mali and Lani’s attempt to ski The Wurl.

    Hunt to Eat founder, Mahting Putelis

    This is another installment in our series on food, food systems, and food movements, and we have included links below to all of the really interesting and diverse range of conversations we’ve had this year on these topics.
    Our guest today was first introduced to me by Blister reviewer, Paul Forward. Mahting Putelis is the founder of Hunt to Eat, which is an organization that exists to:
    “Find modern, progressive, and inclusive ways to support and grow the community of folks that go outdoors, harvest wild meat, or plants, or fungi, and take these things home to be cooked with care for themselves or their friends and family. The folks that see the importance of wildlife and nature. This community is not defined by race, politics, education, wealth, or gender; it's simply a human community. Hunting, fishing, foraging, and existing in nature are things that human beings have done to survive since the dawn of our evolution. Everyone who exists in nature is part of the Hunt to Eat community. And it can only grow from here.”

JK in der Schweiz ,

Great podcast about all things outdoors

Jonathan is a very well-spoken show host. While Gear 30 is my favorite (geeked out on the multi-episodes of ski boot plastics :)) all the different shows are great. I even ended up subscribing to the online reviews and deep dives.
