The best part about the internet? Real communities and businesses are built there. It’s one place that movements can be made visible. While the “outdoors” and “online” can seem like an oxymoron, social media and other online platforms have enabled women to ignite change within the outdoor space. Even in the wilderness, we are never too far from technology. And while that can be a negative thing, this episode explores the positives that spring from women outdoors, online.

We talk with Heather Balogh Rochfort of Just a Colorado Gal; Nicole Brown, cofounder of Women Who Hike; and Deanne Buck, executive director of Camber Outdoors Camber Outdoors.

Also features Jainee Dial, cofounder of Wylder Goods; Summer Michaud-Skog of Fat Girls Hiking; Zoe Balaconis of Misadventures Mag; and Hatie Parameter of Whoa Mag.
