waypoint

A place for meaningful conversations with accomplished athletes, inspiring adventurers, and influential activists. we deconstruct how our guests add meaningful value to the world and do good with their passion for adventure.

Those who are privileged to expand their horizons as travelers and explorers bear intimate witness to threats both to the planet and humankind. Explorers are uniquely positioned and motivated to share their observations, as they often occur during formative life experiences. Through sharing engaging stories of adventurers and athletes pursuing their passion through philanthropy, we inspire action. We encourage listeners to support the featured cause monetarily, arm listeners with toolkits on how to take action themselves, and share an ‘ounce of activism’ a small, but meaningful, effort the listening audience can engage in to limit or mitigate their impact on the planet.
