The way I view sport is that it's, it's a healing process for everyone. It's a way to connect to the outdoors. It's a way to connect to our natural world or other than human beings as well as each other, to feel a sense of community. And that was that moment. And that's what created like this more motivation to drift away from mechanical engineering, which was the path I was kind of going for with schooling and everything and move more towards adaptive sports. It started building this empathy of like, oh, like, this is what it's about. It's about building community. It's about the love of the feeling that we get that sense of freedom that we usually don't feel day to day because we live in such an aimless world. Because of these power struggles and power dynamics. It's causing a lot of inequities that are happening in this world, and it's causing more and more wealth and more and more privilege to be detrimental to a lot of those oppressed communities.

“My client is the Ocean.” The subject of episode 19 of The Roam podcast is the talented Mr. Andy Mann. This was such a fun conversation.

A man as you’ll hear, with NO plan, but somehow that has made all the difference on this remarkable multi-faceted journey from climber and cook at The Sink in Boulder, to Nat Geo photographer, director, founder, musician, father, husband, conservationist, and filmmaker. Andy is remarkably humble and unassuming for such an accomplished human being. But he breaks down how he stays so rooted and the decisions and approach he takes that has influenced his path.
