Wild Why

Wild Why podcast explores why - and how - people find challenging experiences, healing, and transformation in outdoor adventures. Outdoor writer and columnist Amy Donaldson talks with endurance sports athletes and recreational adventure seekers about what motivates them, how the challenges they sought surprised and transformed them, and why it is that so much healing happens when we connect with nature. The stories range from a marathon runner who found her way back to running after suffering a nervous breakdown during the Boston Marathon to a runner who started running to lose weight and found it transformed not just his life but those around him. Each week the podcast will take listeners inside different challenges, emotional and physical, through the experiences of athletes of all ages and abilities.
