What can we learn from nature when we pause to look and listen? In this episode, writer and American Sign Language interpreter Justin Maurer shares how being an interpreter for his deaf mom led to forming a punk band, presenting at the Oscars and seeking out one of the quietest places in the world. We also interview Nancy Bockino, a forest ecologist and avalanche professional, who is working to restore an entire ecosystem by saving the whitebark pine. At the Patagonia Archives, longtime Patagonia employees explain how Yvon Chouinard’s worn-out Craghopper Shorts became the seed for Patagonia clothing. Tune in for a new episode of Patagonia Stories wherever you get your podcasts. To learn more, watch “Silence Isn’t Silent” and read “One for the Grove.”

The natural world contains wonders and wisdom that should be accessible to everyone. But what barriers prevent us from acquiring that knowledge? In this episode, we speak with Kiko and Kyra Sweeney from the story “Running the Coast” about why their family emphasized running despite disability. Then we turn to a conversation with reporter Sofía Arredondo about the legendary Mexican climber Raúl Revilla Quiroz, and his impact upon the future generations of climbers. These are stories of people who are claiming their access to outdoor spaces and working to make them more accessible for all. Join us for Patagonia Stories wherever you get your podcasts.
