The Dirtbag Diaries — Endangered Spaces

I’m a big fan of the Dirtbag Diaries podcast. Episode after episode is so good (e.g., Winnebago Warriors, Catching Hope, The Fear is Real, etc.), but I’ve especially appreciated a new series they’ve started on environmental activism–important stories, committed people, practical insights. Love it. Here are the first three:

Endangered Spaces: Bears Ears. “In the beginning, Josh came to Bears Ears, Utah in search of adventure. But the more time he spent there, the less his relationship with the landscape had to do with first ascents, and the more it had to do with connecting to the current people and ancient cultures who call Bears Ears home. Now, Josh is a leader in the fight to protect the 1.9 million acres of wild, history-rich, red sandstone landscape.”

Endangered Spaces: Katahdin Woods and Waters. “For Lucas, the endangered space wasn’t the land he was working to protect, but the communities that surround it.”

Endangered Spaces: Boundary Waters. “For our third Endangered Spaces episode, we travel to Northern Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to follow Dave and Amy Freeman on ‘Paddle to D.C.’ and ‘A Year in the Wilderness,’ two adventures that had a real impact in advocating for the protection of the place they love most.”

Fitz, Becca, Jen, and Anya: keep rockin’ the stories. You’re the best! (And one of these days my wife and I are going to send you our short about adoption and the river that runs through it.)
