Wild Ideas Worth Living | Presented by REI
Shelby Stanger: Podcast Host, Journalist, Surfer,
REI presents Wild Ideas Worth Living, a podcast that shares stories of adventure and beyond. On each show, host and adventure journalist Shelby Stanger interviews world-class explorers, scientists, athletes, adventurers, and entrepreneurs about how they’ve taken their own wild ideas and made them a reality, so you can too. From people who have climbed the tallest peaks, to people who have started new businesses, broken records, surfed giant waves, sailed across the Pacific, travelled to every country in the world, or just stood up for something they believed in, some of the wildest ideas often lead to the most rewarding adventures. Previous guests include Climber Chris Sharma, Surfer Bethany Hamilton, Skier Caroline Gleich, Filmmaker Cyrus Sutton, Runner Dean Karnazes, Sailor Liz Clark, Snowboarder Kelly Clark, Freediver Kimi Werner, Minimalist and Activist Rob Greenfield, Photographer Chris Burkard, Author Chris McDougall, November Project Founder Brogan Graham, fasting expert Alan Goldhamer, Triathlete Brendan Brazier, Paralympian Alana Nichols, Comedian JP Sears, and more.
Mindfulness with John Allcock
At Sea Change Preparatory, a school in Del Mar, San Diego,, they begin each day on the beach with a ten-minute meditation and a mile-long swim in the open ocean before starting classes. John Allcock, the co-founder and Director of Mindfulness at Sea Change Preparatory, talks about the impact this education is having on kids’ lives. John is a Harvard-educated trial lawyer and the author of Forty Things I Wish I’d Told My Kids, a book about his journey learning mindfulness.
Last year was a big year for this podcast, and this year we’re boosting our production even more. We’re diving deeper into stories and exploring not just people, but also about topics and ideas that will help you chase down your own wild adventures. From mindfulness to saying yes to fear, hacking your health, and changing how we think about the outdoors, fitness, and technology, we’ve already recorded the first few shows. I think you’re going to love it.
We are now two years, 97 episodes, and over a million listens into this podcast. It’s been a privilege to interview some of the biggest names in adventure. We’ve talked about how being outside in nature can help us become healthier, what it’s like seeing the earth from outer space, the changing tides of consumerism, fighting wildfires, gaining financial independence, ultramarathon trail running, becoming sober, representation in the outdoors, breaking records, how to face fear, and so much more.
