Singer-songwriter David Lindes found his way into running with help from the most unexpected teacher: a bull moose. Growing up in Guatemala David had learned to ignore his body. Thanks to beatings by his adults, his body was a source of pain, and not much else. So he didn’t play sports, he didn’t dance, he found out later he wasn’t even walking correctly. But as an adult, as he started to heal, he began to learn about his body. What it could do, how good it could feel to run and hike through the canyons near his home. Then, one day, he encountered a family of moose. And they put his newfound trust in his body to the test. The Outside Podcast is made possible by Outside+ subscribers.

We think of New York as having a rat problem, but cats are doing just as much damage. They hunt staggering numbers of birds, they carry parasites that cause birth defects, they spread diseases that wash into the ocean and kill sea otters and seals. NYC’s cat population is exploding. There are more cats in North America than ever before. Reporter Meg Duff investigates what, if anything, might be done about that. The Outside Podcast is made possible by Outside+ subscribers.

Look around the start line of an endurance race and you don’t see many tall competitors. Look on the podium, and you never see any. Why is that? Why don’t tall people win endurance races? Host Peter Frick-Wright and producer Paddy O’Connell are pretty much the two tallest athletes in all of the outdoors. Will they ever be champion runners? No they will not. But the reasons why might surprise you. The Outside Podcast is made possible by Outside+ subscribers.

When Marty Moose strolled into Santa Fe looking for a mate, he became a viral sensation in New Mexico. But that did nothing to help his search for love—and it created big issues for wildlife managers. Moose don’t usually wander that far south.

People dream of boating or swimming with whales. But that’s based on the false assumption that they are gentle giants that don’t bother humans. But they’re not. And they do. Just ask Liz Cottriel and Julie McSorley, who found themselves kayaking off California’s Central Coast when a group of humpback whales began feeding all around them. Producer Aaron Scott reports on how the dream of boating with whales stacks up against the reality of being surrounded by some of the largest creatures on the planet.

How do you make the best of a golf addiction? Add running. That’s the formula contributor Alex Ward tried to perfect a few months ago, when he started figuring out a way to turn his rounds of golf into real exercise. Would golf be an endurance sport if he played sunrise to sunset? What if he wore running gear, carried just three clubs, and played this notoriously slow and calm sport absolutely as fast as he could? The Outside Podcast is made possible by Outside+ subscribers.

Adventures can provide fuel for romance, but only if you know how to take what you learned in the mountains back home. Just askPaddy O’Connell. Paddy loves two things: fresh pow, and his wife, Carly. On their one-year wedding anniversary, the cutest couple in all of the outdoors ventured to Portillo, Chile to contemplate their affection for skiing and each other. And eat great food.

The abandoned vehicle where Chris McCandless died teaches us a lot about modern Alaska. Ever since Outside published Jon Krakauer’s feature about the young, adventurous drifter who attempted to live off the land near Denali National Park, people have been making the pilgrimage to Bus 142 to see it for themselves. But the hike involves a dangerous river crossing. So after two drownings and countless rescues, the state of Alaska decided they needed to solve this problem once and for all. Reporter Eva Holland wanted to know: Can you make the wilderness safe without ruining it? How do you take the Into the Wild bus out of the wild?

Before she became famous for her lawsuits against former President Trump, the writer took a road trip for an Outside story that had her asking total strangers if they had sex outdoors. Her destination: the many American towns named Eden. Were Americans copulating in the gardens of Eden? She was in a car that she had hand-painted with blue polka dots and green frogs, her snacks consisted of cakes and pies, and her copilot was a giant poodle. In this gem of an episode from our archives, producer Paddy O’Connell hangs on for dear life. The Outside Podcast is made possible by Outside+ subscribers.

I think that everyone is faced with mental disorders at different ages. And it is very important to turn for help in time. I recently found a website https://www.businessinsider.com/gay-patient-said-betterhelp-therapist-told-him-turn-straight-wsj-2022-12 and found out about a company that helps in difficult life situations. This has become especially relevant during the pandemic. I think that it is important to know such information when you feel bad.

You have a list of things to do and projects to https://allaboutrestock.com/when-does-home-depot-restock/ complete hastily, but you’ll need to wait on some supplies. You feel the disappointment of missing out on a good deal.

I work as a volunteer taking people down a suburban river. One contribution that I make is to carry a pop-up room and a lugable-loo, a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat top, and a liner bag. But as a nod to the story that I read in Outside many years ago, the extra bags, tp, wipes, and hand sanitizer, are carried in an ammo can. Groover Boy lives on!

i Really do love this podcast but some of the recent stories are going away from the telling of great adventures and storytelling and turning into a political left leaning progressive lecture on where my moral compass should be pointing, i don't mind a little bit of that but it's getting out of hand can we get back to the roots of Outside please!

Why does everything have to be an NPR episode and why does every NPR episode have to be "green, diversity, and progressive" politics?

This was great. I find "the wedge" riding my mountain bike. I find, as a 41 year old newbie to mountain biking, that those uphill pushes and the ensuing state of exhaustion, that point of "I can't breathe any faster or harder"... is actually something I've come to crave. Not just the fun of the downhill but the sheer uncomfortable exhaustion if the uphill... Good stuff

I as the same experience after a brain injury/concussion. Music was my worst nightmare. It took me 8 months to be able to listen to a song and another 6 months to listen to music more regularly. I am just now (18 months after accident) to be able to listen to music in a car and have a conversation at the same time. Its amazing what your brain filters and ignores when it is not injured. I also found that being quiet in nature was a huge part of my recovery and lower my developed anxiety. I had to go through extensive vestibular and vision therapy to further heal. I hope you are getting the help you need to make a full recovery. Best wishes!
