Thank you for your new podcast about women in the outdoors. Thank you for your bravery, openness, and stellar guests. Listening in the studio: all of my work (drawings and paintings) emanates from my constant attention and visceral connection to the natural world. Listening and inspired to explore new frontiers.
I'm so happy there's another outdoor podcast to listen to and especially one focused on women. Looking forward to many more episodes.
It's awesome to see (aka hear) a podcast dedicated to women in the outdoors and delve deeper on their stories. Looking forward to hearing it evolve as grow!
