Real stories told by real women on a podcast created by a woman! Love the format, great sound quality and helpful show notes. The reason I keep coming back is that in each episode there is at least one relatable nugget and usually at least one inspirational and/or “hmpf” I’ve learned something new nugget. Thank you 🙏 for the support and inspiration —There are many ways to explore.

Mothers and daughters

This podcast just keeps getting better and better. The diversity of ethnicity and age and abilities is such a breath of fresh air. If anyone isn’t sure, just listen to the May 8th, 2019 Mother’s Day episode - what a moving revelation of the love and connection with nature that is facilitated and engendered within families - utterly beautiful.

Mostly enjoyable interviews

I enjoy listening to this podcast while I’m out in the woods walking my dog. Most of the interviews are an interesting peak into the adventurous lives of women across the country and encourages me to keep exploring.
One thing that I find irksome and distracting from the interview topics is the tendency of guests to end sentences with rising vocal inflections. It seems to belittle the confidence in what they are saying. For example, if asked what their inspiration is, they’ll reply “Umm, my mom?” Rather than just saying “My mom.” It is a major pet peeve of mine. Speak with the confidence and strength that your story topics contain!
