Outdoor Evolution founder & contributor Darwin Rakestraw is joined by rotating co-hosts on a podcast that seeks to go beyond the usual conversations in the outdoor community. As more people turn to hiking, cycling, van-life and the outdoors - making use of public lands and Mother Nature - the questions we ask ourselves as a community need to move beyond the surface level. The Outdoor Evolution Podcast is all about the current, difficult and important discussions in the outdoor community.

Breaking out of the mold
I have followed you for several years on you tube, and learned so much as I began my backpacking journey, and over the years have watched your evolution, breaking out of the mold of the traditional you tuber, and expanded your experience base, with thought provoking, motivational, and inspiring projects, and content, giving back, doing something bigger than yourself. Really looking forward to your podcast! Thanks
I don’t normally listen to podcast, but when I do it’s the Outdoor Evolution Podcast.
I haven’t been watching your channel(YouTube) all that long because of course I’m a new backpacker trying to start my journey. Your reviews and videos have definitely helped me along my journey, but most importantly inspiring me to do something that makes me happy. When I saw you started a podcast I was really excited to see what you had to say... I’m not a “Youtuber” so I don’t understand the struggle. I have seen society try to control the content of the creator. Just know where there are people to kick you down, there will be just as many people to support you along your journey whatever it may be. Thank you for what you do Darwin! Cant wait to hear more 🙌
