Incorpore more wild in your life

This podcast is my adventure when I’m stuck in my 9-5. I love the stories and I’m inspired by the guests on this show— I want to hike more, explore more, and see what more the world has to offer. I love this podcast!

Fell in love with podcasts

Dear Shelby,

I’ve never been one for watching the news, listening to podcasts, reading the newspaper and the only autobiographies I read we’re on Ava Gardner and Shelly winters. My boyfriend on the other hand is totally into all of that (his favorite show is PBS 😋). One day I decided to give podcasts an another try (for like the millionth time) and when I stumbled upon yours, it was like magic! First off, I love love listening to your podcasts, the music you play, the sounds of fire crackling or waves in the back ground and you just have a great voice for podcast type stuff! Second the topics you touch on, I always feel more enriched, motivated and inspired after listening. It pushed me to quit a job I wasn’t happy in, it’s inspired me to try new things (kayaking, try horse back riding, try kickboxing, jet off to Europe) etc. Here are some things I’m really passionate about and would love to maybe hear on your podcast some day (please point me in the direction if you’ve already made a post cast on any of these topics). 1. Tiny house communities and someone who has started one. 2. People living and working from their computers (nomadic lifestyle) making a great income doing it while traveling. 3. Someone living in their tiny house across the country 4. Someone who has helped open a animal sanctuary (I met an American women like this in India, who opened a shelter and vet spot for street dogs. Amazing) 5. How to be sustainable in a state which doesn’t support; recycling, composting, etc etc 6. Anyway, just my 2 cents. Keep rocking what your doing! Your the best!
