Welcome to The Outdoor Journal Podcast, where the world is your playground. We'll be taking you on a journey to meet some of the world's most inspirational athletes, explorers and storytellers who are pushing the boundaries of human potential on adventures into the outdoors and journeys into the self. In each episode, we'll examine the psychology of performance to learn just what it takes to face your fears and come out the other side.
In this inaugural episode, we'll speak with the Founder of The Outdoor Journal, Apoorva Prasad or "AP", for a behind the scenes peek into the "why" behind the international adventure travel magazine and how TOJ is developing a new way for readers to live out the adventures they've been reading about. AP enjoyed an immersive relationship with the outdoors as a child growing up in India, living in spitting distance from rhinos and later on, after struggling to balance the pressures of graduating college in the states with his competing dream to become an elite mountaineer, AP turned his accidental foray in journalism, when he realized he could make a few bucks by taking a camera with him into the mountains, into a viable media business and use it as a means for good.
