Episode #693



After a brief hiatus, the boys are back with another edition of ‘Roll On’, the version of the podcast where we ramble on matters of interest across culture, sports, art, politics, self-betterment, and more.

This might be the most Roll On Roll On of all Roll Ons. A classic “old school” Roll On, if we’ve even been doing this long enough to earn that description, we cover headlines and controversies from the world of endurance, discuss abortion rights in America and the Supreme Court’s rightward shift, crack wise and round things out with answers to questions posed on our voicemail.

As always, my co-host is Mr. Adam Skolnick, an activist, veteran journalist, and 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 also the author of One Breath and still uses the ‘new dad’ excuse to avoid working on his novel.

“To be successful you have to work hard—but ultimately, success means avoiding burnout, and designing a life that aligns with your values.”


Specific topics discussed in today’s episode include:

  • Rich’s recent adventures in Colorado (and getting COVID—again);
  • how Jim Thorpe was finally restored as sole winner of 1912 Olympics;
  • Kaitlin Armstrong’s capture in Costa Rica;
  • Francois D’Haene, Kilian Jornet & Courtney Dauwalter’s impressive Hardrock 100 results;
  • wins & controversies from the Badwater 135;
  • the importance of the Webb Telescope images;
  • women’s healthcare rights and the future of abortion in America; and
  • why everyone should watch ‘The Bear’

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • Is an unbalanced life centered on work a rite of passage when it comes to success?
  • How do you embody gratitude?
  • What books changed your life?

Thank you to Anna Grace from Charlottesville, Virginia, Dan from Silver Spring, and Kyle from Massachusetts 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.
