Episode 17 – Maura Kistler

Maura Kistler Waterstone Outdoors Podcast Header

If there’s one thing you can’t call Maura Kistler it’s sedentary. She’s always doing something to bring people – climbers, kayakers, outdoor enthusiasts – together to build community, all while running her gear shop, WaterStone Outdoors, and teaching. Her unbounded drive, self deprecating humor, and straight-at-it attitude has been an inspiration to me over the years and I always look ... Read More »

Episode 16 – Jeremy Quentin

Jeremy Quentin Small Houses Action in Solitude Podcast Kevin Riley Concord Massachusetts

As I’ve gotten to know Jeremy Quentin (plays under the moniker Small Houses) over the years he’s become one of my favorite people.

Jon Glassberg and Jordan Shipman are the co-founders of Louder Than 11. You’ve probably seen some of their online videos or maybe even caught one of their climbing competition live broadcasts.

Andres Marin won’t tell you he’s a badass climber, but don’t let him fool you. He is.

Episode 7 – Josh Helke

Josh Helke Organic Climbing Podcast Action in Solitude Kevin Riley Bouldering

When speaking to Josh Helke, owner and founder of Organic Climbing, it quickly became evident that his passion for quality products is equal to his immense passion for climbing and bouldering. He’s not a flashy guy, nor one to toot his own horn (maybe it’s his humble Midwesterner upbringing), but when he gets to talking it’s almost as if he gains ... Read More »

It’s hard to start an outdoor brand. Like really hard. I’ve always admired those that ignore the odds and go at it full steam. So I enjoyed having product designer and founder of MHM Jeff Popp stop by the basement studio to talk about growing up in Golden, CO, snowboarding for the University of Colorado and growing a business. Enjoy! Read More »

A couple days later we met in the parking lot and headed up ... Read More »
