Great content and inspiring!
This is such an interesting set of conversations that build episode to episode but still have different views and perspectives from each guest. Looking forward to more to be played to and from my own outside adventures on trail and shore!
Really excellent content, but one production request
I love this host and the guests they feature. Always thoughtful, inspiring, and realistic dialogue. One production request- the intro music is much louder than the interviews- necessitating that you turn down the volume when starting the podcast, only to turn it up again during the interview. Small tweak but just in case you’re reading this producers.
