This is the second half of my chat with Willa Moore. In the first half, we discussed how she got involved in a life lived outdoors and developed a passion for basket making and hide tanning.
In this second episode, we have a really compelling conversation about some of the negative sides of the American outdoor industry, ranging from representation and accessibility, to a need for a more welcoming and caring community during long term wilderness experiences, instead of the current “rugged individual” stereotype that’s become pervasive in many outdoor pursuits. I learned a lot, chatting with Willa, and really enjoyed hearing her perspective on how we in the outdoor industry can create a more welcoming environment for people who’re interested in getting started or taking part in this lifestyle. I hope you all get as much out of it as I did.
Thanks for listening.
