Thumb on the pulse of outdoor adventure
Professionally produced, immensely entertaining and informative, Dispatch Radio is quickly becoming a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts in Colorado and across the U.S. The multi-host format and everything-under-the-sum approach to topics (if it's outdoors and adventurous, they cover it) makes it a refreshing change from one-on-one interview shows and shows that are dedicated to just one sport. It's fun to follow the cast of regular hosts as they pursue their own adventures, including ultra running, mountain biking, rock climbing and adventure racing.
