• Ep. 1046: Running Across the Sahara Desert - Revisited - Ray Zahab

    Soon after turning 30, Ray, a self-described “two pack a day smoker”, was tired of the direction his life was heading. His younger brother, who was pursuing a healthier lifestyle, was his inspiration to make a change. 

    Ray quickly set his eyes to try to complete a 100-mile ultramarathon. He won. 

    Within the next few years he put his life on a trajectory of adventures and purpose, combining feats as large as running across the Sahara Desert and taking scores of young adults on adventures through founding impossible2possible.com, an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, inclusion, and participation in expeditions.

  • Ep. 1045: Biking to Every National Park in the Lower 48 - Spencer McCullough

    On May 21st, 2024, in Acadia National Park, Spencer became the first person to complete a trip to all the national parks in the lower forty-eight states…by bicycle. It took 13 months, 18,000 miles, and a whopping 28 flat tires.

    In preparation for this bicycle trip, Spencer moved into a van, cut the expenses of his life down to save money so he could take this time off. This bike trip was only the beginning of a larger advocacy project. Spencer’s goal is to make sure that if you hike or bike into a federally

    managed campground, there will always be a cheap place for you to stay. This will provide the necessary support for people who are recreating without a car and offer an incentive to others to leave their car at home.

    When not on the move, Spencer is heavily involved in community organizing and advocacy work. In 2020 he wrote and passed a ballot initiative in Denver County regarding Internet access and has spent countless hours helping move the needle on walking, biking, and bus infrastructure in Denver.

    After humble beginnings in the world of sports, Brian was introduced to summiting mountains, vast wilderness, and travel when he went to work at a summer camp in Colorado that changed his life forever. After that experience, as well as encouragement from his brother, he was eager to see more of the world. That’s when he took a solo trip to Central America just to experience the culture and scenery. 

    He was hooked!

    Brian quickly began traveling all over the world, racking up visits to dozens of countries in a relatively short amount of time. It wasn’t long before the idea to visit every country in the world became his pursuit.

  • Ep. 1037: The Beauty of Combining Adventure Sports - Jennifer Strong McConachie

    Are you ready to Go Multisport? You can run, you can paddle, you can swim, you can ski, you can climb, you can train, and you can bike. But how can you combine them all together? For ultra-like distances and days at a time? How about climbing, hiking, and packrafting all in one day?

    Beyond traditional 5Ks and 10Ks and single sport extreme and endurance events, is the newly evolving field of multisport. Multisport events are usually self-designed and determined. These extreme athletes most often create their own events because they are the first to do these human-powered endurance challenges.

    Jennifer Strong McConachie is an ultrarunner, mountaineer, marathon swimmer, endurance paddler, multisport athlete, and alumni of the podcast. An Outward Bound graduate, she is also a Fellow in the Royal Geographical Society, Member of The Explorers Club, and author of Go Far and Go Multisport.

  • Ep. 1035: Ultra Running With Multiple Sclerosis - Matt Knaggs

    Matt considered himself a casual runner, completing one or two half-marathons a year. He was raising a family, advancing his career, and staying healthy. His outlook on life was that it was chugging along, and Matt was content. As far as he was concerned, he “had it all figured out.” 

    However, as life often does, it threw Matt a tough curveball with what seemed like an unsolvable problem. His balance was off, he was constantly exhausted, and his vision was blurry.

    After months of doctor appointments, ER visits, and no answers, Matt was left with a sense of bewilderment about the changes happening to him. After collapsing on a work trip and being rushed to the hospital by his work colleagues, he was finally diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and told he would be wheelchair-bound within five years. 

    Today, we’ll hear about Matt’s journey since the diagnosis, how he got back into running, and how he set his goals far beyond what he imagined before this life-altering news. This leads us to what’s next. Starting June 15th, Matt is planning to run from Lincoln, Nebraska, to Casey, Iowa, in an effort to raise awareness and funds for MS Run the US. You can follow along with his journey here on Instagram, and here to support: Mattruns4ms.com

  • Ep. 1032: From Canoeing in Michigan to Protecting the Amazon Rainforest - Eric Rutter

    During his day job Eric writes about Michigan football for Sports Illustrated and works at a Mexican Restaurant. However, during breaks from work, Eric takes solo travel experiences all around the world to some of the most exotic places. Eric’s confidence in travel began a few years ago when he attempted a 120-mile solo canoe trip on the Au Sable River in his hometown of Grayling. The seemingly familiar location and experience made Eric realize home is much more adventurous than we often think. 

    That accomplishment led Eric to eventually travel to the Amazon Rainforest, where he saw firsthand the destruction of the most biodiverse place on earth and immediately got involved in helping protect it.

  • Ep. 1031: Riding a Horse Across America - Revisited - Jesse McNeil

    Originally aired August 22, 2021

    At 37, Jesse McNeil—at times carpenter, commercial fisherman, dabbler in real estate—decided to buy an untrained horse, make himself into a horseman, and ride all the way across the United States, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean.

    A fiercely independent traveler, Jesse had navigated previous coast-to-coast trips—solo journeys by moped, bicycle, and small airplane. This time, however, he had a partner: a five-year-old Tennessee Walking Horse named Pepper. An inexperienced horseman with an equally inexperienced mount, Jesse would quickly discover the immense challenges of his new undertaking. Over the course of eight months and fourteen states—beginning in Oregon and ending on a beach in New Hampshire—he would be tested many times over as he learned not only what it took to keep Pepper safe and healthy, but the true value of qualities that he had once easily dismissed: patience and companionship.

    The generosity of strangers, from helpful ranchers and storekeepers to suburban families, shaped the pair’s journey east. And while at some points the miles didn’t unfold as Jesse hoped, others yielded unexpected events that changed his perspective—and quite possibly, his future. Written with honesty, grit, and grace, On the Hoof captures an arduous voyage that broke a man down and built him back up, with the help of one special horse.

  • Ep. 1030: The Importance of Trying New Adventures - Paddy O’Connell

    One of the hardest things to get over when trying new adventure sports as an adult is looking like a newbie. However, that’s exactly what we need to do in order to experience the joy of new adventures. Today, we’re talking to someone facing those challenges head on and bringing a camera with him so you can see exactly what it’s like. 

    With his enthusiasm for learning new things and his 6’5”, 250 pounds of questionably athletic mass, Paddy O’Connell is like an average, everyday outdoor enthusiast who’s been inflated way beyond average, standard size. With Paddy’s new show, PaddyO Sucks At, pairs him with coaches and mentors from different sports and activities, at which it’s doubtful he’ll excel, in a celebration of the one thing we can all relate to: being a beginner.

  • Ep. 1028: Biking Across America With No Food or Money - Daniel Troia

    Daniel Troia is a filmmaker who just released his new documentary, "We Are All In This Together", which traces his cross-country bicycle journey with no food, no money, and his search for human connection. The film captures the interactions that Troia has with the people who lend a helping hand, and shows that those who face the most adversity in their lives, often have the most to give.

    A journey taken entirely alone, Troia crosses the Great Basin Desert, climbs over 11,000 foot mountain passes in Montana, and rides over the Sierras, Rockies and Appalachian Mountain ranges. After covering 7,000 miles and 19 states, the film suggests that although so many things can feel overwhelming in our world right now, the one thing that we CAN control is how we treat each other.

    “We Are All In This Together” is now streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Google Play!
