She Gets Out features conversations with women talking about their relationship with the outdoors. Too often we only hear the stories of professional athletes and people performing at the top of their sport. But most of us are amateurs and weekend warriors, trying to get outside as much as possible. This podcast shares the stories of everyday women getting after it in the outdoors. We talk to women from all around the world. Some conversations capture the challenges real women face when learning a new sport and others will look at how sports can act as a catalyst for social change.

Join us as we share stories of women in the outdoors.
