Out There: A Podcast About The Outdoors
About This Show
Out There is a podcast about the outdoors -- from your window box and garden, to the fields on the edge of town, to the forests, prairies, seashores, and wilderness. On the show, we explore our relationship with nature, through stories, interviews, essays, and even some fiction. We travel around the U.S. and the world, with tales of love and heartbreak, passion and adversity, desperation and triumph.

A New Identity
Fresh out of college, Brendan Leonard was an alcoholic. A total mess. And -- spoiler alert -- he got sober. But drinking had been his favorite thing; it was what defined him. After alcohol was taken away from him, he didn't know who he was anymore. On this episode, he joins me to talk about the difficult process of creating a new life for himself. For Brendan, that new life came about in the outdoors, through rock climbing. And it happened completely by accident.
