Stories of women who are inspired by time spent outside take the shape of interviews, in-the-field recordings, and listener submissions. These make up a tapestry of episodes covering themes such as solo hiking and camping; entrepreneurship; aging; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); conservation; motherhood; chronic illness; and feminism as they intersect with outdoor experiences.

Fear & Leadership in the Mountains
How many times have we been told the story of the fearless leader? When the stakes are high, it feels natural to place our confidence in strength and certainty. But this is the story of a sometimes fearful leader who is listening to what fear has to teach us in the mountains.
Where We Walk: Meeting Wildlife on the A.T.
With thousands of species of animals to encounter, it's clear that wildlife on the Appalachian Trail is plentiful. But here’s a question: how much do you see and experience when you're outdoors, especially when you're hiking? We take a journey together to learn more about wildlife on the A.T. from two professionals, Sally Naser and Amber Wendler, while also taking an immersive journey walking on the Trail for a day through listening -- so that next time you're outdoors, you might be encouraged to move a little slower and observe the world around you.
Blooming in a Green Career: Laura Navar
Laura Navar, Outreach Manager at National Parks Conservation Association, considers herself to be a bit of a late bloomer in the conservation nonprofit world. She didn’t know that the environmental field would be of interest to her because conservation wasn’t something that was talked about growing up. And yet, as we’ll hear, it’s always been embedded in her Latinx family culture.
Where We Walk: Dreaming of Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail

Laura dreams of hiking the Trail, but forces outside of her control have kept her from doing it.
Customer ReviewsSee All
Quite the variety
So many types of interviews. Counselors , high adventures , moms , singles. I am not a big adventurer But I am trying. This podcast inspires me that I should try more Life is meant to be lived
Not a fan
I listened to this podcast a few years ago and deleted because I didn’t enjoy the content. Thought I would give it a try with the new series involved with the AT. Find the interviewer’s style distracting.
WAY too many ads
The sheer amount of advertising makes this podcast impossible to enjoy. There are ads every couple minutes throughout the whole thing in addition to the super long ad in the beginning.
