Listen to “The First Time: Part 5” Dirtbag Diaries Podcast Episode

The Dirtbag Diaries  /  1 Min Read  /  Community

The_first_time_title_pt5It’s been a fun week of First Time stories thanks to The Dirtbag Diaries. We’ve heard from an extreme sledder, a freestyle kayaker, an ice climber, an alpinist and now, a snowboarder:

Today, Stephanie McLawrence, a self-described bookworm from Brooklyn’s notorious Bushwick neighborhood, brings us a story about finding a second chance in a first time.
