This week’s guest is Rick Ridgeway, legendary alpinist, adventurer, activist and writer. Rick’s new book Life Lived Wild is a fantastic collection of adventure essays that trek through the deep relationships he forged with the outdoors and friends across shared objectives and profound experiences. In our conversation, we follow the cairns of Rick’s journey from the hills of the Los Angeles basin, to the remote peaks of eastern Tibet, to his current work as Vice President of Environmental Initiatives at Patagonia. Rick will be speaking more on Life Lived Wild with fellow friend of the pod, Conrad Anker, in Bozeman on December 16th at the Emerson Center.
