Show #295 – April 30, 2016

Guests: Mountain2Mountain’s Shannon Galpin; Rich Roll

This week, my guests include National Geographic’s 2013 “Adventurer of the Year”, Shannon Galpin.

As many of you know, Shannon has been working tirelessly to bring cycling – with it’s messages of freedom, independence, and self-esteem to the women of Afghanistan.

The Afghani women’s cycling team has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for their bravery and persistence in the face of corruption and persecution.

This week, the New York Times published an article exposing the corruption and problems facing these women as their bikes, their funding, and their future as cyclists are being stripped away by the coach who was supposed to train and protect them.

Shannon Galpin is my first guest this week and we delve into the problems the women of Afghanistan face and what she plans to do when she returns to the country after an 8-month absence.

After the break, we head out to Malibu, California to speak with pod caster, author, endurance triathlete, and vegan Rich Roll.

Rich’s story is both compelling and inspiring and his messages are clear. HIs best selling book, Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself, tell it all and we will discuss Rich’s philosophies, diet, and his message to those who don’t think they can “reach their goals”.

It’s a great show!
