This week’s guest is Jeff Shapiro, professional adventure athlete whose many pursuits include climbing, hang gliding, paragliding, and wingsuit base jumping. Jeff and his family lived in Montana for many years and recently relocated to the Oregon coast. In this episode, Jeff talks about the difference between passion and obsession and gives listeners a run down on the various ways he flies. Justin asks about the mental state needed to engage in an activity that has a high level of consequence, and Jeff says it’s a mindset that anyone can relate to. Tune into part two next week.
