Roam From Home Ep. 24 with Vasu Sojitra Welcome back to the Rome Podcast, the podcast where we talk about Adventure and Purpose with some of the most iconic and interesting folks in the outdoor and adventure space. Trying to get into conversations that maybe haven't been heard before, some insights and different sides of people. Myself and Cory Richards, alpinist, natgeo photographer, and King of the conversation do this every week. So thanks for being here this week with our very special guest Vasu, Sojitra. "The way I view sport is that it's, it's a healing process for everyone. It's a way to connect to the outdoors. It's a way to connect to our natural world or other than human beings as well as each other, to feel a sense of community. And that was that moment. And that's what created like this more motivation to drift away from mechanical engineering, which was the path I was kind of going for with schooling and everything and move more towards adaptive sports. It started building this empathy of like, oh, like, this is what it's about. It's about building community. It's about the love of the feeling that we get that sense of freedom that we usually don't feel day to day because we live in such an aimless world. Because of these power struggles and power dynamics. It's causing a lot of inequities that are happening in this world, and it's causing more and more wealth and more and more privilege to be detrimental to a lot of those oppressed communities." - Vasu Sojitra Roam Media Inc.

Apology: We had some audio issues with Dr. Whittaker’s connection and throughout the interview, there are slight disruptions that are distracting.

Episode 18 Sasha Digiuilan Navigating Change In this episode, one of the best rock climbers of all-time, Sasha Digiulian, sits down to talk with Cory and I about her life, her career, and Adventure with Purpose. Sasha shares how she strives to find harmony and has rolled with the punches during her career - and at this challenging time. At 27 years old she has already had a decade-plus long career in climbing and adventure. The conversation covers her storied career and what she’s up to now while quarantined and recovering from major surgery. She dives into what it’s like to try and balance an athletic career with life, education, relationships, travel, and how she has learned to both confront and shut out the noise of social media. She describes the power of commitment, discovering “just being” and struggling with the question of “does everything happen for a reason,” while she has been dealing with post-surgery recovery, the death of a friend, and quarantine.

Roam From Home Ep.17 with Rebecca Rusch

Episode 17 Rebecca Rusch In this episode Rebecca takes Cory and CJ on the journey from being a homeless climber to finding where she belongs, “a place where I could call home.” She walks us through her month long personal journey to visit the crash site of her father in Vietnam/Laos, who died as a pilot fighting in the Vietnam war, and how that experience ended up uncovering something much deeper. This story, documented in the Emmy winning documentary Blood Road, is about the scars, both physical and emotional, that war leaves on families, countries, and cultures, and how they still exist today. Rebecca is a thoughtful, kind, empathetic human. She describes her learning process during her career, making films, and in 2020. Highlights: Anger - how she has learned to process and be proactive. Instead of yelling and stomping about the things that get us riled up. And how long bike rides help Leadership - how the best seem to find the temperance and long term vision to make change happen. How changing habit is hard - but the process of change is necessary to make work “stick” Self discovery, discipline and the road to mastery How failure and pain are our teachers and we need them The “origin” stories we tell ourselves and how that can hold us back. The power of meditation and the answers within Bio: Author, athlete, public speaker, filmmaker, entrepreneur - Rebecca defies definition. She has spent 30 years chasing “firsts” – podiums, PRs, and championship titles, yes, but also has pioneered never-before-imagined adventures, destinations and projects that have challenged and shaped her personally and professionally. It’s this continual engagement with “what’s next” that has fueled her curiosity, satisfied her soul, fed her desire for growth, connection and change and grounded her in the belief that operating out of the comfort zone is the only way for us to evolve as humans, contribute to the greater good and enjoy the richness life can offer. She loves sharing the most enduring lessons she has learned along the way. She lives by the words from her father, “Be good.” Rebecca’s Instagram Rebecca’s Website: Blood Road

Roam From Home Ep.16 with Hilaree Nelson

Episode 16 Hilaree Nelson Hilaree Nelson is a total badass in the mountains. Our conversation with Hilaree, takes a close look at the process, the hard fought journeys, the desperate moments of adventure and self analysis that ultimately lead to confronting your self head on. She has challenged herself mentally and physically as much as a person can. Her work on identity as a female athlete, often on male dominated teams and as a mother are fascinating and valuable for anyone who has faced the “hamster wheel” of mental questioning. She has an incredible story of life experiences that have helped her achieve mastery of her mindset, catching negative thoughts, gain focus, perspective and find success. “And hopefully I’m more fun to be around.” She and Cory’s history together on expeditions makes for lively conversation with meaningful take-aways. They dive deep into their experience together on a 2014 expedition to climb the highest peak in southeast asia, Hkakabo Razi. It pushed them to their limits. “Everything went wrong. Our team imploded. The adversity kept coming and we fell apart at the seams. It became about surviving. It took me a long time to recover.” The lessons and parallels drawn from this trip are parallel to 2020, the year we all understand as a challenge, and worth the listen. Hear the answer to Cory’s question - “Why did we blow up the way we did?” Hilaree’s description of “Mom Guilt” and the constant dialogue, the hamster wheel of identity as a mother. Cory and Hilaree discuss EMDR treatment and their experiences dealing with trauma. The story of Hkakabo Razi and Hilaree and Cory’s experience - as told by Hilaree Lhotse - the North Face Movie that chronicles HIlaree and Jim Morrison’s adventure to ski this holy grail in mountaineering...the Lhotse couloir Hilaree Nelson: The current North Face team captain combines a passion for exploration, mountain adventures and skiing. She has traveled to some of the most exotic mountain ranges on earth. Her expedition career has led her to many ‘firsts” in the world of ski mountaineering including linking two 8000m peaks in one push, first ski descents in Baffin Island, a first American ascent and ski descent of Papsura peak in India and a first ski descent of the 4th highest peak in the world, Lhotse. She is an avid proponent of wild places such as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and holds to the philosophy that these places have huge significance in the well-being of both the planet and the human psyche. Recently named by Men’s Journal as one of the most adventurous women of the last 25 years, as well as National Geographic’s 2018 Adventurer of the Year, Hilaree rounds out her athletic endeavors by sharing her many stories on stages across the country in hopes of inspiring imagination and passion in the people she encounters. Hilaree is also the mother of two wild boys and finds her sanity in the San Juan mountains near her home in Telluride, CO.
