Great podcast about the outdoor industry and conservation community
This podcast is great! It gives me a good insight into the happenings in the outdoor industry and conservation community. I'm excited for more!
Two thumbs up!
Kristin is a great host. She's witty, knowledgeable and extremely passionate about the outdoors. TMO is relatable and makes you feel like you’re part of the conversation. I love to listen to it while I’m at my desk, on a run or even riding up the chairlift. It’s great to find a community of people like me who would rather be outdoors. Can’t wait to hear more!
