Incredible.

I have listened to thousands of hours of podcasts due to how driving intensive my job is, and I have never found one that I enjoy more than She Explores. Gale has a way of diving into the lives of so many amazing and inspiring women that cannot be replicated. Thank you for creating such an amazing space for women to share their experiences with others. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead in future episodes.

The endless possibilities

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write a review. This podcast opened up ideas and possibilities I didn’t think were mine to take. As a photographer and retired dancer, I have belittled myself as an “athlete” which was the only way I could validate myself as an “outdoorsy” person before this podcast despite a whole childhood in the outdoors. For the last two years as a listener, I have heard stories like mine, stories beyond what I can fathom, and stories of the lives I hope to embody. This podcast makes me excited to finish my day at work while listening so I can get out with my pup and live the life I finally see I both deserve and can have as an artist, outdoor enthusiast, armature athlete, activist, and ultimately-woman.

A Thousand Thank Yous

This review is so overdue, but I need to start with the honest truth: this podcast changed my life. I found She Explores and their sister podcast Women On The Road in late 2017 when my business was taking off to full-time and my 4 year long relationship was ending. I felt so lost and overwhelmed all at once. By trade I am a professional photographer who is in a car daily for my job, and finding podcasts to listen to changed my constant time spent on the road. Coming out of a relationship where I was told I wasn't adventurous enough (literally right after shooting in Iceland, Greece, Colorado, North Carolina, Montana, etc. all while living in north Georgia...), I wasn't financially valuable enough, and that I was less than in many other ways at the same time that I found this beautiful podcast was seriously divine intervention. Laura and Gale both do such a beautiful job of sharing legitimate stories that the masses need to hear in a way that causes an empathetic response in the listener. Their desire to educate has also been so needed as well; we all need to know more and do more for the places we call home. Because of their podcasts I was able to plan and execute a month lived out of my Subaru Crosstrek in July/August of 2018 in Utah mostly solo, from and then back to Georgia. Their links to resources are incredible as well as the guests they feature who share so much knowledge about road living/trips (for my personal trip I followed Briana Madia and Abbi Hearne to learn as much as possible about the desert/Utah before going). I will forever be grateful for this podcast. Thank you thank you thank you.
