Episode #641



Dadding. Surfing with Kai Lenny. Going FAR with Robbie Balenger. And of course, the Adam-Brogan faceoff we’ve all been waiting for.

Welcome to perhaps the most hotly anticipated rendition of ‘Roll On’ since its inception, wherein myself and my undefeated podcast co-pilot Adam Skolnick (and interloping guest Brogan Graham) hone on matters of contemporaneous import, and go slightly off the rails.

Aside from serving as my magnanimous sidecar hype-beast, Adam Skolnick is an activist and veteran journalist best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me, co-author. Adam writes 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 using the ‘new dad’ excuse to avoid working on his novel.

Brogan Graham is a friend-hunting, fitness fanatic force of nature, as well as the co-founder of November Project, a free and frenetic, flashmob fitness revolution that counts over 250,000 lifetime members and dominates the pre-dawn urban landscape of 52 cities and nine countries spread across North America, Europe, the United Kingdom and even parts of Asia.

“Quality time isn’t about what you’re doing—it’s about the quality of yourself that you give to the ones you love.”


This episode unfurls in a fashion unique.

We start off with the half-cocked banter you’ve come to know and love. Adam and Brogan hash out their ‘drama’. We discuss the nuances of being a new dad. And the importance of showing up for your kids and partner.

We then close things out with my conversation with ultra-runner and friend of the pod Robbie Balenger, which was recorded at Ten Thousand’s live event at the Legendary Explorer’s Club in NYC, where we celebrated the launch of my Free Association Run (FAR) kit—a collection of men’s running gear.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
