Auditory adventurers, brace yourselves for another mind-bending installment of “Roll On,” where we fearlessly plunge into a vortex of topics that’ll leave your senses reeling. Let’s catch up, shall we?

Roll On is the version of the podcast where we meander through a kaleidoscope of topics spanning culture, athletics, artistic expression, political discourse, and personal growth.

As always, my co-host is Mr. Adam Skolnick, an activist, veteran journalist, author of One Breath, and co-author of David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me and Never Finished. A longtime independent reporter, Adam has covered travel, sports, human rights, and the environment for The New York Times, Outside, Playboy, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health.

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


Specific topics discussed in today’s episode include:

  • Adam’s completed novel;
  • Adam’s newfound passion for cycling and his quest for the perfect bike;
  • Reflections on our recent podcast guests, from Johann Hari to Jonathan Haidt;
  • The joys and challenges of family life, parenting, and upcoming travels to Paris for the Olympics;
  • My incredible adventures in India, including an audience with the Dalai Lama;
  • Heartfelt tributes to the late David Clark and Jon Urbanchek;
  • Deep dives into the creative writing process, meditation, journaling, and unlocking creativity;
  • Book recommendations galore, from timeless classics to contemporary gems; and
  • Sage Bistro and the debate on regenerative farming, environmental impact, and meat consumption ethics.

For those who prefer a visual experience, the conversation is available on YouTube. As always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Whether you’re a Roll On aficionado or an inquisitive newbie, this episode promises to be an exhilarating tour of laughter, profound insights, and maybe even a few reality-bending moments—but don’t fret, we’ll keep things whimsical and engaging throughout.
