    November 2023 Bonus Episode - The Wonders Of Wool With Lawson Glidden

    Have you ever heard the phrase “Cotton Kills?” One thing that we can each do to be a responsible outdoors person is to dress appropriately for the activity and weather to minimize the risk of getting too wet and too cold which could lead to hypothermia. Today I talk with Lawson Glidden, owner of Minus33, an American company founded in New Hampshire in 2001. They have been making wool textiles for 100 years bringing you apparel that will keep you warm when wet. Lawson is extremely passionate about wool and you’ll have to tune in to hear why. I present, “the wonders of wool.”

Super helpful

Super helpful - I’ve learned so much on safety and things to be more aware of when spending time outdoors to prevent injury/death and on self rescue. Thank you for this podcast! 🩵

Great podcast, audio needs work!

With so many comments about the poor audio quality, why isn’t the host adjusting?! It’s gotten worse. The stories and lessons learned are so valuable. Rather than an interview, the guests are allowed to tell their stories themselves, with some questions and prompting from Ashley. However, the difference in audio volume and quality between guest and host is sharp and grating. I often have to turn the volume up to hear the guest only to quickly turn it down again the moment Ashley speaks. Impossible to listen to this podcast with ear buds. Thanks for the stories, but please equalize the volume!

Really wanted to like this podcast

After listening to quality content like against the odds and the fine line, I was excited to find another podcast about search/rescue and accidents. It’s my opinion that the host detracts a lot from the guests story line with her misplaced input in the middle of their dialogue causing a break in the flow of storytelling. The audio quality isn’t the best. Very quiet guest speakers suddenly interrupted by the loud unexpected voice of the host.
