Not your average outdoor podcast

I listen to several outdoor podcasts, but like the Dirtbag Diaries the best. What do I like about it? I like the outdoor stories and I like the new music. But, what I like the best is the writing. This is not just another outdoor "how-to" or another gear review. To me, its like a brand new Jon Krakauer short story every time I open up Itunes. The Dirtbag Diaries examine what pulls folks like us to the tops of mountains, down rivers, or into the unknown which awaits us just past the next trail switchback. It pulls at those spiritual strings that keep tugging our generation more and more into the magestic outdoors. As we grow older, it gets easier and easier to make excuses not to get out. The Dirtbag Diaries will help keep you inspired and motivated to stay young and make excuses to get out.

'This American Life' of outdoor adventure

Great podcast, with the style of Ira Glass' This American Life, and a focus on outdoor adventure stories. There are a lot of adventure stories out there and Cahall seems to have a talent for finding the ones that take entertaining and unexpected twists and turns. He also takes the stories past the usual punchline of a close call or impressive accomplishment to find something deeper and more thought provoking. Highly recommended.

Can't wait for the next one

If you have ever picked up a copy of Backpacker, Outside, or an Ed Abbey book, these are the stories you were looking for. Fitz has an elegant yet straightforward narrative with the intermittant perfect indie song to mesh the flow. I've found myself smiling tears of joy and exhausting my adrenal glands all from the comfort of my home with this Podcast. When I'm bieng a poon because of inclimate weather or just laziness, DD reminds me to enjoy the simple insights and friendships I've gained being outdoors and thus inspires me to pack up and out.
