This Outside Life

Fascinating interviews with people who work or play in the great outdoors. In this climate of depressing reports (Starving polar bears! Plastic in the oceans!) I want to turn from the tsunami of negative news and focus on what’s wonderful about our world. My aim is for you to fall in love with this gorgeous world of ours. I want you to notice the infinite storm of beauty that surrounds us. I want you to pause as you scurry out to your car and notice the bird song around you. I want you to step outside and step into wonder. I want you to fall in love with this outside life. If this sounds like you then these are your people and this is your tribe. Subscribe!!
