#24 is a gem

Using the outdoors and adventure to help fuel the body and soul is a great process. This podcast is one of the more insightful ones out there. Stories about adventures are fun, but going in deeper is more enriching.

The Brave Monkey Speak

I'm really enjoying this podcast--I look forward to it every week! For anyone who craves adventure, this podcast does a great job of relating a love of the outdoors and creative challenge to a real world application. While you don't have to be a climber to enjoy this podcast, it may turn you into one--this podcast encouraged me to fnally give it a try and I've been loving it. Whatever it is that you love, this podcast will inspire you to take a risk and live adventurously.
