Outside Voices Podcast

Launched in 2019, Outside Voices "celebrate[s] and amplif[ies] those who don't always see themselves reflected in the 'Great Outdoors' narrative," by centering the stories of "Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ folks and others who redefine 'outdoorsy.'" Sarah Shimazaki hosts and produces the podcast (and credits her grandparents for sparking her love of the outdoors). So far, the Outside Voices has released a handful of episodes, each about 30 minutes long. Installments share stories of the guest's unique relationship to and perspective on the outdoors. For example, Episode 5 "Gathering Community at Refuge Outdoor Festival" explores how camping brings a family closer to each other and their community. Episode 1, "Sharing the Stoke with Olivia Vandamme" discusses a surfer and educator's connections to the ocean. Though the podcast is relatively new, it has already been enjoyed by thousands of listeners. Outdoor Voices is a project of Resource Media and receives funding from the Brainerd Foundation and True North Foundation.
