I’ve been driving around lately listening to all my usual podcasts and going off on my quests down various seams of curiosity and thought I’d share some of my convos with myself, with you.
This is the first solo-cast I’ve done, let me know if you’d like to hear more or if you’d rather get back to the interviews with another person.
In this episode I’ll talk about the following ideas:
-dare to be great
-power of reading books and leveraging experience/knowledge/time equation
-men need danger, excitement, community
-not everyone should be an entrepreneur
-better to be curious and listen when you want to accomplish a joint task
-why you should judge for yourself what’s “worth listening to”, and why a Navy SEAL (or anyone) may not be worth listening to, the effect of hazard on importance of message, see “men need danger” above
-brain intensity training, just like physical intensity training. Intensity in general.

This time around we turn back to the mountain men and talk with Doug Chabot, an avalanche specialist, mountain guide, climber, and co-founder of the non-profit Iqra Fund.
Doug talks about how he went from being a New Jersey boy with no wilderness skills to a respected climber with several first ascents and notable climbs in the Karakorum, Hindu Kush, and Pamir mountains. He also tells the story of Chris’ (the problem solver) daring leap off the side of a cliff in Yosemite after pulling off a base jumper’s body, and talks about why it’s so damn important (and easy) to help little girls in Pakistan gain access to education.
When he’s not being a boring old mountain climber, Doug works at the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center as the Director/Avalanche Specialist in Bozeman Montana.

Ever wanted to know the way a professional problem solver thinks? Tune in this week and listen to my good friend Chris talk about the genesis and development of a world class problem solver. Chris has worked as everything from a Paramedic to a Park Ranger to a soldier and has worked everywhere from combat diving underwater to high mountain adventuring. A member of the ever shrinking group of Americans who hunt their own meat and a determined freedom seeker, Chris' philosophy on money, time, and integrity is always worth a listen. Enjoy!

This week we talk with cyclist Jeff Pierce, the first American to win a stage in the Tour de France and his wife Jo Kiesanowski, 3 time Olympian cyclist. Yes, this is a cycling-heavy episode. :) Jeff & Jo talk about his epic finish in 1987, old school training (running up hill with big iron pipes in each hand), mentally preparing for huge races, and the best way they've found to use the Paleo diet to boost performance.
