Like a Bigfoot Podcast #287: Lia Ditton — 87 Days Alone Rowing the Pacific

This week’s guest is the incredible ocean rower Lia Ditton!

Lia is a sailor, rower, adventurer with a lifelong passion for ocean travel. In this week’s episode we chat all about what it was like to spend 87 days alone on a record setting row across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Hawaii.

Lia dives into her mindset, what it was like to spend so much time with herself, how she battled self doubt, fear, and anxiousness as she explored the lowest of lows and the highest of highs! Such a unique and epic adventure has given her amazing insights on life, adventure, and the world at large.

I truly hope you enjoy this episode!! I’m excited to share Lia’s journey with the world. If you are interested in seeing more of this quest, be sure to check out her short film “87 Days: Alone Rowing the Pacific” on Vimeo!!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #286: Cody Townsend 2 — Skiing Mt. St. Elias, Reflections on “The Fifty”, & His First 50K Run

In this episode adventurer and pro-skier Cody Townsend shares stories and adventures from “The Fifty” project, in which he mountaineers and skis the “Fifty Classic Ski Descents in North America”. He also tells us what it was like to take on his very first 50K trail run which was the brutal Broken Arrow Skyrace with 10,000ft elevation gain over 31 miles!!

We talk all about his ambitious expedition on Mt. St. Elias along with his journey into dadhood and how trail running a 50k is similar but ultimately way different than a long sufferfest in the wilderness mountaineering and skiing.

Hope you all enjoy the episode!! I’m a huge fan of Cody and his documentary project “The Fifty” and highly recommend every single episode on Youtube!!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #284: Nate Miller — A Life of Hockey & The Making of “Miracle”

This week we are chatting with my buddy and lifelong hockey guy Nate Miller!!

Now coaching his kids’ hockey teams, Nate was the captain for the University of Minnesota Gophers before pursuing a professional career that surprisingly resulted in starring in the movie “Miracle” about the greatest upset in sports history.

In this episode we talk about it all – why hockey really connected with him, what it was like to move up the ranks in the sport, what he misses about being on a team, how he wound up playing John ‘Bah’ Harrington in the movie “Miracle” and what it was like to film, and his reactions to the endlessly entertaining documentary “Untold: Crimes and Penalties” (which he was not involved with but knew many of the players who were).

Hope you all enjoy the episode as much as I did!!
