It’s Wednesday, which means it’s also time for another episode of The Adventure Podcast. This week, my co-host Dave Adlard and I share a few things that we both have on our bucket lists, which is to say, things that we want to accomplish before we kick the bucket. Both of us list a few big adventures and travels that we want to eventually experience of course, but we also share some things that are decided not about adventure and travel at all. What made the cut? You’ll just have to tune in to find out.
Before diving into our bucket list breakdown, we first take a look at the latest Adventure News. This week, we get listeners caught up on the current state of the winter climbing expeditions, some dubious weather records set in the Antarctic, and the novel way that some Chinese athletes are training in the shadow fo the coronavirus. Later, we wrap things up with our latest outdoor gear picks, with Dave sharing some thoughts on new hiking shoes from adidas, while I review a pair of backpacks from STNGR.
Also of note, on this episode we announce our first ever gear giveaway, working in conjunction with our friends at Korkers. The company behind a host of innovative traction devices for keeping our footing on slick surfaces, is giving away ten pairs of its traction cleats with Boa lacing systems. To be eligible to win, simply use the promo code “ADVENTUREPODCAST” at checkout. Only entries from North America will be eligible this time. Good luck!
As usual, you can listen to the entire show in the embedded player at the bottom of this blog post. You can also subscribe to the podcast through Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, and Spotify, which will alert you to new episodes as they are released.
