Like a Bigfoot Podcast #290: Lindsey Ward 4 — Discussing a Bunch of Random Topics Tangentially Related to Adventure!

This week we are catching up with my lovely wife Lindsey Ward to discuss a bunch of random topics that are somewhat tangentially related to the concept of adventure!

As always this conversation ranges from serious topics like mental health to ridiculous topics like the time I accidentally snot rocketed into my own eyeball.

She’s one of my absolute favorite people to talk to both in real life and for the show! Enjoy!

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!!
