This is probably exactly what you'd expect from a show about the outdoors. But what about stories on over-hydration and sports bra design?

Since the late 1970s, Outside magazine has been sharing tales of adventure, derring-do and survival in the outdoors. Its long-form narratives are some of the best nonfiction you’ll read and many literary lights like Sebastian Junger and John Krakauer got their starts with the publication. So it makes sense that now they would also have a podcast highlighting literary storytelling all about the outdoors.

The Outside podcast is hosted by Peter Frick-Wright, who surprised us with a story about over-hydration and affirmed us with a story about sports bras.
