The Podcast

She Explores

LISTEN

Come find inspiration with us in the outdoors! Interviews, in-the-field recordings, and listener submissions make up a tapestry of episodes covering themes such as solo hiking and camping, entrepreneurship, outdoor equity, aging, conservation, motherhood, chronic illness, and more as they intersect with outdoor experiences. Hosted by Gale Straub.

With the help of these two creatives, we explore what spending time alone means for ourselves, our creativity, and our connections to the communities around us. This week, we’re sharing an episode of Creative Fuel, a podcast that Gale’s co-producing and more importantly – a show that we know you’ll love.

Victoria Amico would say that hiking 100% ruined her life, but in the best way possible: It helped her realize that workaholism and choosing everyone but herself just wasn’t sustainable.

Whether she’s rock climbing or sailing, McKayla Bower is motivated by always moving forward. And by setting her sights on becoming the first trans woman and queer person to circumnavigate the world solo in her sailboat Swirl, she’s moving forward in more ways than one.
