    Roam From Home Ep. 24 with Vasu Sojitra

    Welcome back to the Rome Podcast, the podcast where we talk about Adventure and Purpose with some of the most iconic and interesting folks in the outdoor and adventure space. Trying to get into conversations that maybe haven't been heard before, some insights and different sides of people. Myself and Cory Richards, alpinist, natgeo photographer, and King of the conversation do this every week. So thanks for being here this week with our very special guest Vasu, Sojitra.

    "The way I view sport is that it's, it's a healing process for everyone. It's a way to connect to the outdoors. It's a way to connect to our natural world or other than human beings as well as each other, to feel a sense of community. And that was that moment. And that's what created like this more motivation to drift away from mechanical engineering, which was the path I was kind of going for with schooling and everything and move more towards adaptive sports. It started building this empathy of like, oh, like, this is what it's about. It's about building community. It's about the love of the feeling that we get that sense of freedom that we usually don't feel day to day because we live in such an aimless world. Because of these power struggles and power dynamics. It's causing a lot of inequities that are happening in this world, and it's causing more and more wealth and more and more privilege to be detrimental to a lot of those oppressed communities." - Vasu Sojitra

Very interesting and FUN to listen

I’m not athletic but I love listening to this podcast. It gives me a window into the athletes life, their work and grit to get where they want to be in their field. Many transferable skills to learn from these guests. Cory and CJ are great moderators and have built a community of interesting guests.
