Episode #716



Welcome to the 2022 season finale of ‘Roll On’, our semi-bi-weekly version of the podcast where we indulge in some good-natured banter and ramble on matters of interest across culture, sports, politics, literature, art, self-betterment, and more.

My co-host is Mr. Adam Skolnick, an activist, veteran journalist, author of One Breath, and David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me and Never Finished 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.

Today Rich and Adam talk endurance news, concerning politics, streaming selects, answer listener questions, and more. Rich also expands on the lessons he’s learned after ten years of podcasting and the wisdom he’s gleaned from some of the brightest minds on the show.

“The universe conspires to support you when you put in the work.”


Specific topics discussed in today’s episode include:

  • Rich’s first Formula 1 experience;
  • the way rugged individualism manifests in our world today;
  • updates on the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race;
  • Nedd Brockmann and Paul Minter’s epic runs for charity;
  • the alarming rise in anti-Semitism from Kanye to Kyrie; and
  • Rich’s reflection on turning 56 & the lessons he’s learned from a decade of podcasting

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • What steps do you take to write and publish a book?
  • How do you better retain and retrieve information?
  • How do you maintain relationships and balance athletic pursuits?
