Great info for industry pros
Great podcast, hosted by a longtime, very experienced industry vet who interviews some real industry icons, change-makers and influencers. The podcast delves deep into the nuances of how to succeed in the outdoor industry, no matter what segment in which you’re involved. Younger people and those just starting out in the industry in particular will get very valuable advice on how to further their career and expand their horizons but I’d certainly recommend it to anyone in the industry. There are great ‘nuggets’ and ‘ah-hah moments’ throughout!
