Roll On: Get Back (To Basics)


Why is creativity vital? What is the nature of culture? And why is pursuing happiness futile?

Today we tackle this terrain and so much more in today’s rendition of ‘Roll On,’ wherein myself and my undefeated podcast co-pilot Adam Skolnick ‘get back’ to our original old school format.

Aside from serving as my magnanimous sidecar hype-beast, Adam Skolnick is an activist and veteran journalist best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me, co-author. Adam writes about adventure sports, environmental issues, and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently using the ‘new dad’ excuse to avoid working on his novel.

Today’s discussion includes the following topics:

  • Remembering British photojournalist Tom Stoddart & Australian swimmer Jason Plummer;
  • The ascent of Norwegian triathlon dominance;
  • The Kyle Rittenhouse and Ahmaud Arbery verdicts;
  • Oscar Pistorius’ prison transfer & restorative justice;
  • Lawsuits involving Tyson Foods and Impossible Foods;
  • Toby Morse’s new children’s book ‘One Life One Chance’; and
  • ‘The Beatles: Get Back’ & ‘The Velvet Underground; documentaries

As always, we close things out by taking a few listener questions. Today we answer:

  • How do optimize your caloric intake for recovery when intermittent fasting?
  • Is happiness something that can realistically be achieved? 
  • How do you draw a line between people-pleasing and living a life of service?

Thank you to Al from Washington D.C., Kendall from Boulder, Colorado, and Abby from Colorado for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.
