3 votes so far

Nick and Shelby, the hosts of REI’s podcasts Wild Ideas Worth Living and Take It From Me, turn the mics on each other and talk about their adventure podcasts.

The word is out. REI has been my main partner all year and it’s been an awesome, wild ride. They’re also now in the podcast game with not just my show, but also a new 8-episode series called Take it From Me, that launches this week. We talk to Nick Mott—the producer of the show—share a quick clip of Take It From Me and dive into the unique format and adventurous characters he interviews.

Nick is a fellow journalist, writer, photographer and a rock climber. Originally from Kansas and now living in Boulder, Colorado, he loves the outdoors and sharing stories of people going on bad ass adventures. He also hosts another show about sustainability and has good tips for anyone who wants to start a podcast.

Nick and Shelby’s wild idea: To share about their adventure podcasts, both presented by REI Co-op, and turn the microphone back on each other.

After I talk to Nick, he turns the microphone back on me. A lot of people have been asking me to share my story, so I talk about why I started the podcast, what I look for in guests and some key things I have learned along the way. It’s quick episode. Perfect for a fast run or a short commute. Enjoy.

Listen to this episode if:

  • You love podcasts about the outdoors (which you do, why else would you be here?)
  • You like to get outside.
  • You are looking for an additional wild podcast.
  • You want to start a podcast, or learn more about why I started Wild Ideas Worth Living.
