Election week. Healing the national divide. Environmental progress. Weekly wins. And, of course, listener questions. Welcome to another edition of Roll On.

Commanding co-host duties as always 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:

  • Recapping our whirlwind election week;
  • Making sense of the 70 million votes for Trump and the implications this presents;
  • Understanding Biden and the presidency to come;
  • Bridging our cultural and political divide as a national imperative;
  • Rich’s latest Esquire piece and thoughts on the writing process;
  • Chris Nikic, the first athlete with Down syndrome to complete an Ironman Triathlon;
  • and Rich’s newest offering, Voicing Change.

“Having meaningful conversations laced with nuance is a prerequisite for us moving forward as a healthy country.”


In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • How do you stay focused on your journey and minimize distractions?
  • How do you embrace change and take a step into the unknown?
  • How do you make time for your partner as parents to young children?

Thank you to Frank from Southern California, Davin from South Florida, and Michelle from New Jersey 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.
