Dispatch Radio

Dispatch Radio is an outdoor adventure story podcast and media platform conceived in Boulder, Colo. At the heart of the show are personal stories from a wide variety of backgrounds and activities. It’s about bringing people together, sharing stories, finding common interests between different outdoor communities, and having a good time. Through our growing network of contributors (“dispatchers”), we cover the world of outdoor adventure and endurance sports through the eyes – and voices – of those who wander. The live show features a panel of outdoor enthusiasts along the Front Range of Colorado and special guests.

Time for another #KitchenSesh, where we hang out and chat with special guests in a chill setting. Competitive trail runners Bob Africa, Josh Stevens, and Peter Maksimow join us for this one. In part 1, BobAfrica talks about what it means to #SufferBetter, and Josh (who just got 4th at Rocky Raccoon 50-miler) tells us about overcoming his opiate addiction that stemmed from multiple injuries sustained in multiple IED explosions in the line of duty, which for Josh comprised 24 years of serving our country in the Army Special Forces. Fortunately Josh made it through that, and now is helping to fight the opiate epidemic by working with the Herron Project and SufferBetter. it's not all serious though, this is a #KitcenSesh after all (so we're not editing out all the beer can openings). Part 2 with peter in the hot seat will air next week!

On a summer day in 2014, Chris Brinlee Jr. walked away from his comfortable, well-paying job as an advertising art director to “experience something more,” as he puts it. Over seven months, Chris’s adventures have led him around the globe—he’s paddled remote fjords in Greenland, ridden motorcycles through Vietnam, sailed with a crew to Antarctica, and climbed 6,000m peaks in Nepal.  

He also recently started up a content generation company called Content Machine.

We talk with Chris from co-host Kelly's home in Boulder and hear about Chris' adventures and how he makes it all happen.

Listen as we talk conservation and public lands.  A few highlights from the show we recorded last night...  


Rebecca Schwagger tells us a bit about our venue, the Studio Boulder, and at 4m45s we get rolling.   

Lloyd Athearn and the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative bought part of a kickass mountain (Mt. Shavano) for $50k, so we can all hike it!

Hey, mountain bikers! #dontbeadick

Brady Robinson rocked a ponytail for 6 years too long; is on the fence whether Access Fund will attend Outdoor Retailer shows (it's complicated)

Doug Schnitzspahn really wants you to VOTE!

Aimee Ross answers the burning question about IMBA ... who the hell says "bicycling"? Offers great advice for those who want to get active protecting public lands.

We come up short looking for evidence that hunters and self-powered athletes are working together. But there's hope!

The Studio Boulder is one killer venue! Equipped with an Airstream and brewery next door. What more could you want in an office-share?!

Drink when you hear:
