Welcome to another edition of Roll On—my bi-weekly deep dive into (semi) current events, topics of audience interest, and of course answers to your questions.

Once again serving up co-host duties is Adam Skolnick, an activist and veteran journalist perhaps best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health. He is also the author of One Breath, which chronicles the life and death of America’s greatest freediver, and is currently hard at work on a novel.

We have to foster a culture that is conducive to people learning and growing in the public sphere.

Rich Roll

Some of the many topics explored in today’s conversation include:

  • An update on ultrarunner Tommy Rivs’ battle with lymphoma;
  • Endurance training first principles;
  • Why building a Zone 2 base is critical;
  • DHS failures & overreach;
  • Cancel culture: the Harper’s Letter & Bari Weiss;
  • Gear review show & tell; and
  • Wins of the week: Kai Lenny & Valarie Allman

The health of our society depends upon the free exchange of ideas.

– Rich Roll

In addition we answer the following listener questions:

  • How to live with an angry & abusive alcoholic?
  • The paralyzing perils of self-help addiction
  • Daily habits to thrive
  • What changes should be made to public education?
  • Is it worth writing and sharing your story?
  • How to effectively work with your spouse or partner
