After a bit of a hiatus for the holidays, The Adventure Podcast returns this week with a new episode dedicated to defining the so-called “rules” of adventure. The episode was prompted after the recent stories of Colin O’Brady and Lou Rudd completing their trans-Antarctic expeditions, but later discovering that both used a road to complete the traverse. This raised questions about what “solo”, “unsupported”, and “unassisted” means in terms of the exploration and outdoor community.
Before jumping into that weighty topic, we also get caught up on adventure news with stories about the winter climbing season that is about to get underway, a potential traverse of K2 this summer, and a ghost ship that reappeared after nearly a decade lost at sea. Of course, we wrap things up with a look at the latest gear, including Dave’s revisit of his favorite outdoor jacket and Kraig breaking the story of an innovative new fabric from The North Face.
As always, you’ll find the full episode embedded in this post below, but you’ll also find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, or Spotify. You can check in with us on social media on our Facebook page or Twitter, as well as email us questions, comment, and suggestions too.
