G.O. 011 - Chez Brungraber, Efficient Ecosystem Expert

Chez Brungraber is intrinsically linked to nature. As a botanist and wildlife biologist, her relationship with and understanding of the outdoors is what makes her a successful scientist. A lifelong love of plant-life has inspired her to spend as much time as possible outside, both professionally and recreationally. Travel and backpacking are two of her passions and they have carried her around the world including Nepal and Kenya. She is also the founder of Gobi Gear, an outdoor gear company focusing on efficient and reliable equipment, particularly stuff sacks. She and Jason spoke on Skype about her travels, volunteering in Kenya, ultimate frisbee, and the story behind Gobi Gear.

G.O. 002 - Canyon Lessons and Klaus Gerhart

Klaus Gerhart wasn’t always active outdoors. There was a time when his primary exercise was operating a television remote. Several years ago he decided to journey outside and the course of his life changed drastically. The discovery of technical canyoneering ended any desire to return to a sedentary existence. A few years later he would be recognized as an expert in the field. He is the founder of Uber Adventures, a Los Angeles based training school and gear shop specializing in canyoneering. Jason joined him in his air-conditioned shop in heat-ridden Chatsworth to discuss what drew him to canyoneering and how it has impacted his life.
