Come join us around the Just Like Papa Awehwolf Bar for a few drinks and stories of magical moments and making a plan out in the wild. You may even learn something, but no promises.
Let me axe you a question
In this 15 minute digression, Thomas veers off the episode highway and careens down a side street named "AXES":
Why are axes so important to people?
What makes a bad axe and what makes a great axe?
There are different kinds of axes?
How to tell the difference between "an axe for show" and "an axe for chopping all the things".
Just The Tip 2 - Building an adventure store
Straying off the unbeaten track for a moment, Thomas talks about entrepreneurship, building a company and a team, and the kind of gear he'd love to have more of in the shop.
The Hard Way - Origin Story
Take a seat at the bar and hear how Just Like Papa came to be. How Thomas travelled the world to source the best adventure and survival gear in the world (the title on his business card still says "sourcing"), and how the Just Like Papa store design was inspired by Ernest Hemingway's "Belly of the Beast".
Just The Tip - Patagonia
In Just The Tip, Thomas gives you some travel tips and mindset advice to help you maximise your adventures, even if you never get all the way to Patagonia. At this point in the evening we were all a few drinks down, so you'll have to excuse occasional slurring and heavy editing.
The Hard Way - Patagonia
Welcome to Episode 1 of The Hard Way, a Just Like Papa podcast.
Recorded in the Awe Wolf Bar at the back of the Just Like Papa shop in Harrington Street, over some good old-fashioned Tafels, followed by Whiskey. Followed by Ubering home responsibly.
In this first episode, Thomas Ferreira, owner of Just Like Papa, takes you on a journey to the plains and edges of Patagonia. This is the story of how a hitchhiker, a broken tent, bottle of Johnny Walker Black, 100kph winds, tinned food, constant rain, and a lot more inspired the rise of Just Like Papa.
