Episode #549



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

Commanding co-host duties is my hype man 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 the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

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

  • the documentary ‘Kiss The Ground’ — underground econsystems;
  • regenerative agriculture v. demand for meat;
  • the documentary ‘My Octopus Teacher’ — underwater ecosystems;
  • New studies on the exponential growth of plastic waste; and
  • thoughts on rugged individualism and commonwealth harm

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • How do we grapple with the contradicting values of the American culture?
  • How do you balance training needs and social responsibility in a pandemic?
  • How do you help loved one’s transition to a plant-based lifestyle?

Be an example of the lifestyle you believe in and be well.


Thank you to Heidi from Northern California, Adam from Toronto, and Tristan from British Colombia for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.
