This podcast episode was originally recorded on August 12th, 2018. With warmer weather right around the corner we wanted to bring this episode back from the archives. We've cleaned up the audio a bit and hope that you enjoy the episode with founder Shawn Huff talking about his journey in building Growlerwerks.

Josh sits down with Growlerwerks co-founder Shawn Huff. There's something about getting outdoors that makes you crave a tasty beer, but when storing freshly poured craft beer in a glass growler, chances are it’s going to lose some of it’s gusto by the time you’re ready to drink it. Growlerwerks is a company saving beer enthusiasts by introducing the the uKeg, a growler designed to perfectly store beer so that it’s freshness is never lost. Having successfully completed one of the most successful Kickstarters to date, raising well over 1.5 million dollars, it’s no wonder such a fantastic product idea has taken off. Not only is Growlerwerks a savior of the beer industry, it’s perfect for outdoors/travel enthusiasts who want to enjoy a fresh beer after a day on the trail or mountain without having to worry about stale, skunked, swill.

This podcast episode was originally recorded on Nov 5th, 2018. Since Buffalo Jackson is a part of our current Adventure Travel giveaway we wanted to bring this episode back from the archives. We've cleaned up the audio a bit and hope that you enjoy the episode with founder Xan Hood talking about his journey in building Buffalo Jackson.

 

Josh sits down with Buffalo Jackson Trading Co. founder Xan Hood. Buffalo Jackson Trading Co. is a lifestyle brand delivering vintage and outdoors apparel and leather bags and goods. Their mission? Nurturing and cultivating a style that encapsulates man’s yearning to be in nature, while being caged in an urban or suburban setting. This vision of founder Xan Hood’s was originally born while on a men’s retreat, realizing that there was this need and love for all things outdoors, regardless of whether you were fully engaged or not. With that, he also realized the lack of quality and stylish apparel that told this story and supported this instinctual lust for the outdoors and heritage. With Buffalo Jackson gaining so much traction in the last year, it’s no wonder they recently expanded from solely men’s apparel and goods to an exploding women’s line as well. Want to find out more? Well, you’ll just have to tune in to this week's episode.

Josh sits down with Wuru Wool founder Matt Disney. Wuru Wool is a premium merino wool apparel brand that was born while Disney was abroad and happened to stumble upon a merino wool blister prevention project. Really… it was that simple! BUT, the crazy part was how quickly the transition came from finding the hard facts on merino wool superiority, to fabricating a product, and ultimately having enough people hounding him for more and MORE merino apparel (the people know what they want, damn it!). Despite an incredibly simple concept, Matt and his team were able make such a sought after product! Take a seat, tune in, and check out the story behind Wuru Wool.

Josh sits down with Coalition Snow founder Jennifer Gurecki. Coalition Snow is a Ski and Snowboard brand making top quality planks and boards for women. This happens to be Gurecki’s second time on the show and it’s no question that Coalition Snow has been on a serious upswing since we’ve had her on the show. Coalition Snow’s rise upward only gave her more momentum to create her recently launched Sisu Magazine AND a podcast of her own, Juicy Bits, where she captures and unravels women's experiences and captivating thoughts that are sparked on the trail and chairlift. We’re PSYCHED to have her back on the show and to get a chance to catch up with Coalition Snow founder, Jennifer Guereck

Josh sits down with Unit 1 co-founder Juan Garcia Mansilla. Unit 1 makes helmets that have detachable headphones built in, allowing you to listen to music and communicate with your friends on the mountain via their walkie-talkie app. We’ve all been there. You want to ride with the perfect soundtrack but, you’re not thrilled with the song that’s bumping so you have to stop, and shed your snow armor so you can get to your phone/ipod. For Juan Garcia and his co-founders, this wasn’t something you simply ‘deal with’ and after being frustrated and disappointed with some of the solutions on the market they did what everyone says they’re going to do but, no one has the guts to do. Roll up their sleeves, dig deep, and solve a problem that so many other people have experienced. Though they are still a fairly young company we are THRILLED to welcome Unit 1 to the industry and are absolutely enthralled by the story of how they got started. Tune in, you won’t regret it!
