Out There is a podcast that explores big questions through intimate stories in the great outdoors.

    Vanlife and COVID

    Vanlife and COVID

    Amber McDaniel lives on the road full-time. She and her partner are both freelance writers, so working remotely isn’t a problem for them. And they love the freedom to spend their days in America’s most beautiful natural places.

    But what happens to van lifers when a pandemic hits? Where do you go, when campgrounds and public lands start to close?

    On this episode, Amber joins us to talk about “staying home” when you don’t have a home.

    On this bonus episode, we bring you tales from Out There’s live storytelling night earlier this month.

    Going It Alone

    Melanie Chambers loved traveling alone. So when she set off on a four-month solo bicycle trip through Japan and Korea, she wasn’t worried.

    But almost immediately, loneliness set in.

    On this episode, Melanie shares her story. It’s a story of trying to prove yourself, of discovering the limits of your independence, and of making sense of a worldview that prizes self sufficiency.

    Lessons from the Trail

    On this episode, we share a story from the podcast Shelter in Place, about a backpacking trip on the John Muir Trail. The story takes us into the mountains of California and explores the parallels between hiking in the wilderness and adapting to a life of social distancing.

    We also chat with Shelter in Place Host Laura Joyce Davis about how producing a daily podcast is helping her ward off depression and find bright spots amidst the hardship.
