  • My favorite podcast!!!!
    September 21, 2018 by SconnieGal10 from United States

    If I was forced to choose only one podcast to listen to (and I listens to lots of podcasts), I would choose this one!!! Shelby is an amazing interviewer and host, and the guests on the show are beyond inspiring. The interview style is humble, casual, and down to earth. I often think about the stories the guests share long after I listen to the podcast. This show has been life-changing! Thank you Shelby and REI for this beloved podcast. P.S. Shelby can I come surf with you in San Diego?! I always feel jealous of the guests when you invite them to surf with you in the show lol ?

  • Fun and inspiring!
    September 13, 2018 by Melfoley from United States

    This has become my favorite podcast. The guests are inspiring and the host does a great job of engaging them and asking good questions. This has become my go-to podcast when working out. She also tends to stay away from politics, which I really appreciate. (I need a break from it!)

  • So so good!
    September 13, 2018 by CanadianMTB from Canada

    I absolutely love Wild Ideas! Shelby is a fantastic interviewer with fascinating guests. I love Shelby’s honesty and vulnerability, and the excellent questions she asks. I listened to all of her episodes while at work (I’m in construction) and it helps me get through the day feeling happy and inspired. Thank you Shelby! And keep up the amazing work.

  • Right on
    September 10, 2018 by GeorgieJasper from Australia

    You have a way of interviewing that makes it feel like we are all sitting around at a cafe just chatting. I love it. Ps.... it would be rad if you could get Jeremy Jones in for a chat? cheers

  • Totally rad
    September 8, 2018 by fmbenj from United States

  • Life Changing Inspiration
    September 5, 2018 by jackieflyers from United States

    I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while. I love hearing people talk about about the exciting and incredible things they’ve done in their lives. The common thread among most guests is that they took a chance, took a leap, and trusted it would work out. I have to say, that hearing this from amazing adventurers has helped encouraged me to take my own leap: I moved from the east coast to Hawaii about a month ago, away from family and friends and everything that’s been so familiar to me. I’ve been experiencing all kinds of ups and downs, new experiences, new adventures, and living just outside of my comfort zone. I’m excited to see where my new adventure takes me, and I’m glad I have Shelby and her guests to keep me company along the way.

  • My weekly inspiration!!
    September 3, 2018 by courths15 from United States

    Beware.. This podcast is extremely dangerous to listen to because when I listen at work, every episode makes me want to quit my job and do something wild!! This is an amazing podcast and Shelby is great host and interviewer. The guests she has on shows are always extremely interesting and have diverse interests. My reading list is filled with suggestions from the guests on the show. It is an extremely positive podcast and always leaves me feeling inspired and refreshed! 10/10 recommend!!

  • One of the best...
    August 31, 2018 by Fender66 from United States

  • Best Podcast Ever!
    July 25, 2018 by Traveling Chad from United States

    This podcast is the best conglomerate of the most interesting and exciting people ever! I feel like Shelby Stanger hand picked each of the people I would want for my life’s advisory board. When I stumbled upon this podcast I was a little lost and uninspired. After listening to every episode almost back to back I now feel inspired to fearlessly and unapologetically pursue all of my wild ideas and passions. I strongly recommend this podcast for any athlete, entrepreneur, world traveler, adventure seeker and aspiring author.

  • Absolutely inspired and outside!!
    July 25, 2018 by bella_bikes_&swims from United States

    Wow. I absolutely fell in love with this podcast and I recommend it to all of my friends and family. I haven’t been outside like this since I was a little girl. From the depths of James Nestor to the heights of Beth Rodden- this podcast takes you on a ride.

  • Really awesome podcast.
    July 22, 2018 by Rivmasta from United States

    I am so glad I found this podcast via handy dandy algorithm run advertisements on instagram. I’ve loved all 30 or so episodes I’ve listened to so far and looking forward to the rest! Shelby kicks butt at hosting it with simple but very adequate questions and letting the guest spill it all out for us. Keep up the good work!

    This podcast became my new running buddy after I moved last summer. I have met some new buddies here but am addicted to your show, and I make sure never to miss a single episode! Shelby, you knocked it out of the park again this week! I just finished the episode and immediately purchased the audiobook of Girl in the Woods. Thank you for this show-I’ve never shared a podcast as much as I do with this one. Every week I send it to a different friend. Keep up the great work Shelby your work is important! Meredith Ross

    Wild Ideas Worth Living is the perfect balance of inspiring and relatable. Shelby’s stoke for each and every guest makes this podcast so genuine. Whether it’s a famous photographer or wild land firefighter, Shelby keeps the conversations so authentic and real. This is the sunny moment on a rare cloudy day in Colorado for me and my aspirational outdoorsy lifestyle. My favorite podcast by far.

    May 22, 2018 by Jordan@whalecleaning from United Kingdom

    I love listening to Shelby and her guests who give such simple and profound tips for living an adventurous life. These are all people who are really living their lives in a joyful way.

    May 14, 2018 by Kwong54 from United States

    Thank you for the amazing episode on Mark Mcinnis; I saved it for future listening (and I never do this). We need more people like Mark. This podcast has so far been choosing the most inspiring people to interview that exemplify the highest human potential which is to keep striving and never give up. Keep it up - everyone should give a listen!

  • Makes my day better every time I listen!

If REI is willing to support our community by making content like this available, I’m more than willing to support their company when I have the opportunity.

  • Best inspirational podcast about our connection the environment on iTunes
    May 12, 2018 by HorseRider2 from United States

    I've been here since the second episode, and I have been addicted ever since. This was the first podcast I ever listened to, and man, Shelby set the bar HIGH for me. She has such a unique ability to make others feel comfortable and draw out unique stories, all while being unapologetically and endearingly honest. Shelby walks the tricky tightrope of a podcaster effortlessly (although I know it is not without effort, Shelby!!). She asks all the right questions, interweaves her own experiences with the guest so that it is like listening to a household conversation while lounging the couch--it's not an interrogation like other podcasts. There is a genuine connection between her and her guests, and I look forward to every episode (I especially love the episodes with Cliff Kapono and Alison Teal). This podcast reignites my deep passion for the incredible world around us and the beauty of interconnectedness whenever I get so bogged down in city life and lose my path. Listen to this podcast if you want to feel inspired, connected, and rejuvenated in a whole that is becoming increasingly hard to do so. And an everlasting thank you to Shelby and ALL your powerful guests. Your efforts are worth more than you know.

  • My FAVORITE!!

  • A positive punch
    April 26, 2018 by Ilovedesign123 from United Kingdom

    I found Shelby's podcast last week whilst starting a new job in London. Every morning on my way to work and throughout the day I have a listen and after every episode I’m inspired to take a risk, follow my dreams and be transformed back to the hills, rivers and mountains that I call home. Thanks Shelby, this has been a game changer for me and merits my first ever iTunes review! Keep it up legend ??

    April 3, 2018 by Canoey Shanoey from United States

    This is my favorite podcast. Shelby has a great way of interviewing her guests. She lets them tell their stories, but also asks unique questions. She is also great about including actual take away, like a book to read, travel essentials, or inspirational morning routines. You will be inspired to make your live more wild.

    Shelby, you’re making an amazing inspiring podcast and I love every minute of it. At the moment I’m working in the French Alps and your podcast is giving me so much energy and food for thought. I listen to it while cleaning chalets (my job here) and it sticks in my daydreams while I’m snowboarding the rest of my time. Keep doing what you’re doing, all the best.

Keep up the fantastic work Shelby!

  • Inspiring, Educational and Entertaining!
    March 13, 2018 by thejenway from United States

    This is by far my favorite podcast I’ve found. I love outdoor adventure stories, and what I love about Wild Ideas Worth Living is that each episode is completely different and unique. I’ve learned so much from some of the remarkable people featured on this show, and always feel excited, inspired and also heartwarmed by how many amazing humans there are in the world doing great things! So many themes exist throughout the shows - not just for adrenaline junkies 🙂 I also love how the host, Shelby, has such a natural way of interviewing that you feel like you’re hanging out listening to an old friend. It never sounds scripted or stuff, flows so nicely. I feel like it’s easy to get lost in each episode and really travel along with each person’s story. I’m so happy to have found this podcast! Keep up the great work 🙂 It’s so important to find positive stories to listen to, now more than ever!

This podcast brings me out of my day to day suburban working Mom life and reminds me of where I used to be and where I can still go....someday. Thanks Shelby for giving me something to look forward to during my commutes, and reminding me that there are so many good people out there doing awesome things! PS-I love your crude sense of humor.

  • AAAAmazing
    March 1, 2018 by AB2Denver from United States

    Obviously the stories and adventures are wicked awesome, but what really makes this podcast is the genuine enthusiasm and excitement in Shelby Stanger's voice. You know how everyone makes funny of Jimmy Fallon for faking being happy all the time? Shelby is the authentically happy Jimmy Fallon. I really appreciate that it takes on a more conversational tone vs podcast tone. There is interupptions, tangents, etc. PS - if you love to read, the number of awesome book recommendations that have come from this podcast is unreal. Enjoy!

    February 26, 2018 by Tom who loves the mtns from United States

    Shelby ,,, I have listened to all of your podcasts and they are great.. Your interviewing skills and selection of folks are always interesting and bring out the best. You have prompted me, a 60 year old ex-IBMr who just got retired to create my own adventure and I am biking across America starting on May 16th using the TransAmerica route , east to west...(not a big deal based on most of you guests accomplishments ...i will feel like Forrest Gump) I have one suggestion for a new guest on your podcast and that is - YOU....Once in awhile you mention things that you have done, or how you grew up, etc.. and I really think it would be great if you had someone interview you for a podcast!!!...Just a suggestion and keep up the great work!! - Tom Galka

  • Perfect podcast for outdoor entrepreneur enthusiasts
    February 13, 2018 by CharlaineJ from Switzerland

    I came across this iPod because I was looking for an outdoor nature themed podcast that delivers more than a « I did this » or « go there » content. Wild Ideas Worth Living sure delivers on that point! Each episode leaves me with a « ah ha » moment, inspires me and has introduced me to a wide range of adventures living their wild ideas. Thank you Shelby!!

  • Fantabulous!
    February 8, 2018 by Koosticdead from United States

    This is an amazing podcast! I've been a podcast junkie for a lot of years and this has become one of my favorites. I love the interviews- Shelby is a great interviewer and there are always interesting interviewees. This podcast is fun, inspiring, and uplifting. Thanks for all the hard work putting it together!

  • Addicted!
    January 30, 2018 by lauramegant from New Zealand

    I stumbled across this podcast a week ago and I’ve listened to an episode every day since! “Wild Ideas Worth Living” is inspiring, energising and brimming with positivity. I learn heaps from each episode too, and have found I’ve been trying more new things since I started listening, even simple things like picking up a new book to read or trying a different workout or watching a sport I’d never thought much about before on YouTube. Shelby is a fantastic listener and has a knack for encouraging her guests to open up and speak authentically. Definitely recommend!

  • Great for my Girls
    January 29, 2018 by mmwags from United States

    Getting my girls (12 & 15) to believe that they are capable of doing anything they set their minds to seems next to impossible. When I speak of this fact they seem to look at me as if I am crazy! Your podcast seems to give them a glimpse of the possibility although it does take a bit of effort to get them to listen. I enjoy listening myself, keep it up!!

  • Inspiring!
    January 26, 2018 by Dr_Roctopus from United States

    This is, by far, my favorite podcast. The interviews and stories inspire me so much to make my life the one I want it to be, rather than just going through the daily grind of a 9-5.

  • More than just "It's great."
    January 25, 2018 by The Soul Of Earth Eyes from United States

    I was first introduced of this podcast series by my longtime and closest friend. She has been trying to get me to get into podcasts for a while & I never really gave it a shot. I always felt like they were too long and not easy to follow. She suggested that I listen to the Chris Burkard & Cyrus Sutton interviews of Wild Ideas Worth Living and let me tell you...after those two episodes, which was just last Saturday, I have been hooked. I listen to about 4-7 episodes a day as of right now. They have completely changed my outlook and attitude on life and inspired me to be a better me for myself and for the world. I have always been confused on why certain circumstances and experiences have happened in my life and this podcast has not only shown me that I am not alone, but it has taught me the importance of self-love and healing. I am so looking forward to finishing every episode in both seasons so that I can listen to them again! Thank you Shelby for quitting your job to share these magical stories with the world. I cannot tell you how much you have changed my life in just a short time. Looking forward to hopefully meeting you one day & going for a surf. Oh & ya this podcast is more than just "It's great."...it is lifechanging, inspiring, and enlightening.

  • Down to earth inspiration
    January 24, 2018 by CCfit131313 from United States

    What’s awesome about this show is that Shelby doesn’t pretend to know everything. Heck, she doesn’t even pretend to be an expert on podcasting. She is uniquely and totally herself, which then makes her interviews unique. They take some turns you’d never expect and there’s lots of laughing, which always makes you feel good. The people she is talking to represent a huge cross section of awesomely wild people. This podcast actually makes me feel like my goals and dreams are possible. Even if they are just about paddling out to surf a little bit more or taking a few more backpacking trips each year. The podcast has tangibly made my life a little better. Which is super rad!

  • Wild about Wild Ideas
    January 23, 2018 by JenniePtothe73 from United States

    I've been an avid listener and wicked big fan of this fantabulous podcast for many months and wanted to share my love after listening to #55 2017 Recap again today. I have listened to it three times so far and keep gleaning gems of wisdom to carry with me in the years to come, trails yet to take and adventures on the make. Shelby has added worth to my life in creating this podcast and interviewing the most incredible and wildly inspiring people. This all sounds rather corny, I'm sure, but I can't help but gush about this poddy that I keep coming back to. Kudos to Shelby and her production team. Can't wait for another season of super stars!

  • Be inspired
    January 19, 2018 by wish I had a trail name from United States

    This is such a joy to listen to. Shelby has a great voice and her passion for what she does comes through in each episode. The content is always interesting and thought provoking. Although I'm only a recent subscriber to the podcast, I'm digging through archives listening to old stuff because I just can get enough. This immediately became one of my favorite podcasts. I'm a big outdoors girl (mid-40's, married with children) and podcasts like this inspire me to keep looking for ways to improve - my life, the world, whatever, and to set an example for my kids to be bold. Keep up the great work Shelby. I can't wait for the next episode! And I'm definitely recommending to my friends.

  • Amazing Podcast
    January 19, 2018 by Avid Sportsman NJ from United States

    This podcast has been an inspiration to me, and my wife. We listen to it on our car rides when we go out and explore, and it sets us in the mood of appreciating what nature has to offer. Thank you so much Shelby for your effort to interview all these amazing people with wild ideas.

  • A Great Addiction!
    January 17, 2018 by Ubertheoutdoors from United States

    I came across this podcast a few weeks and have absolutely loved every episode. Phenomenal people who have profound passions and stories to share are such a joy and inspiration to listen to. Round of applause to Shelby for not only reaching out and coordinating these interviews, but for asking poignant and appropriate questions. This podcast is a breath of fresh air, a reality check on what's really important to you in this life. Great listen for those long roadtrips, long trail runs, or for finishing up that puzzle you set out back in September (putting the last few pieces in after I complete this). This podcast, go you!

  • Wild Ideas Worth Living
    January 10, 2018 by WITZEND2010 from United States

    This podcast has quickly become one of my favorites. Shelby does an amazing job drawing out her guests personal story and core values in meaningful relatable ways. Uplifting and entertaining. Great show notes & bibliography Tweet-able quotes. Easy to use timeline gets you back to those sound bites you just have to hear again! Got my teenage son some of the recommended reads for a gift & he’s already totally stoked reading them ??

    December 13, 2017 by Care P. from United States

    Wild Ideas Worth Living tugs at the heart of us all, that sun-craving, adventure-ready, and experience-hungry soul. Shelby shares the stories of incredible folks- who aren't afraid to tackle a myriad of different avenues on their quest to fulfillment. Their trials, tribulations and triumphs, give us all permission to explore what our world with be with more freedom and less fear. Her podcast makes me want to get outside, do more, and not be scared to take a chance on wild ideas.

  • So inspiring...make me dream a little bigger
    December 8, 2017 by Shannon___K from Canada

    While I listen to many podcasts, I am always excited for Wednesday mornings a new episode of "Wild Ideas Worth Living" is released! They are immensely inspiring and encourage me to dream a little bigger and make decisions that help me live to the fullest. I recently returned from 2 challenging months working and living in a developping country. Driving through the countryside listening to your podcast gave me the motivate and inspiration to get through even the most challenging of days!

  • Best interviewer!
    December 3, 2017 by the edavis from United States

  • For anyone who loves adventure or who is looking for inspiration to live an extraordinary life
    November 29, 2017 by Adventure Girl 1980 from United States

    I cannot say enough good things about Wild Ideas Worth Living. I started listening to this podcast when a good friend of mine recommended it to me (as she knows I'm the adventurous type), and it has reignited a sense of wonder and curiosity that I honestly had forgotten about since my kids were born. Shelby's passion and enthusiasm is contagious, and the way she engages with her guests really creates a fluidity in conversation that is not only entertaining (seriously this woman should be a comedian), but also genuine and so inspiring. Keep up the great work and continue to get the caliber of guests that you have had on, you have a loyal follower for life!

  • Makes My Heart Sing
    November 21, 2017 by PaulaGreg from United States

    I discovered this podcast a few months ago when Shelby appeared on another podcast (frankly can't remember which!) and have been a big fan since. I love the honesty, inspiration, and wild ideas. Even when it is a topic or sport that I don't know anything about, I love to learn new things and expand my mind about what is possible in the world. It puts a bright spot in my day and makes me feel more deeply with every episode. Thank you for all your hard work in bringing this show to us!

  • Great approach
    November 20, 2017 by Muddy's from United States

    So positive. So inspirational. Sincerest thank you.

  • Wild Ideas Worth Living
    November 18, 2017 by Cinntastic from United States

    As I mature and think about the things I value, I gravitate to tremendous experiences and ideas, and am shedding my things that are simply clutter and don’t contribute to new ideas and experiences. Shelby Stanger’s aggregation of stories that share these experiences and ideas of varied people with the greater world is utterly fantastic. I for one will be spending way more time at this site seeing what other people are doing and thinking and turning off the day to day mundane world. Kudos to Shelby for having the insight to put her “Wild Ideas Worth Living” service together for all the world to enjoy. And, more-so, she actually lives the adventurous life herself that she espouses. I love it all - I’m hooked! Fabulous job Shelby. Thanks so much. Live on - live strong! Jerry Holl

  • Game changer
    November 15, 2017 by Ben Stanford from United Kingdom

    This is by far and away my favourite podcast. Not only is it funny and easy on the ear, but it encourages you to take stock of your life and ensure that what ever it is that you are doing is making you happy and fulfilled. If you are, the podcast fills your head with cool conversations and ideas to keep that fire going. If not it inspires you to make a change - giving practical advice on how to change the little things in your life in order to make the big things possible. To give this podcast anything less than five stars would be insane, keep up the good work!

  • Hands down Best podcast ever!
    November 14, 2017 by cali kayley from United States

    I honestly never write reviews for anything. This is such an amazing positive and inspiring podcast! I have been binge listening to every episode and all of them are good.

  • My Favorite Podcast!!!
    November 6, 2017 by SpeedyG1243 from United States

    Not sure how I've missed this podcast for the past year but its instantly become my favorite. I'm working my way through all the backlog of episodes after listening to the most recent 10 recorded. What I like....you can hear, almost feel, Shelby's enthusiasm on the show for her guest, their story and the conversation they're having. Its so refreshing. So many podcasts are manipulated and scripted (don't get me started) and this one has an authenticity to it that makes it hard not to love. Keep up the great work there! The stories of adventures are wonderful too....I could write about that for days as a fellow adventurer with too many wild ideas but I'll skip that for now. Wishing there were more episodes or other ways to have the adventure stories come to life. Thanks!!!

  • A great listen
    October 30, 2017 by BoulderMich from United States

    The interviews are engaging and the stories make you want to get up and GO! This is my favorite podcast for re-energizing myself when I am looking for inspiration. Shelby's up-front, forward, and friendly demeanor make her a great host. Give this one a listen!

  • Inspiring and Unique, I love this podcast.
    October 26, 2017 by Ashley Whitt from United States

    Shelby is such a great show host! Her personality and voice is so easy to listen to. She interviews a wide variety of people with unique ideas that are so fascinating.

Listening to all of the people on this show has given me a tremendous amount of inspiration and I look forward to new shows every week!

    What a fantasitc Podcast. Shelby not only brings some of the more intriguing personalities to her show, she does a fantastic job of bringing the best stories and nuggets of wisdom from each guest.

  • Inspiring, full filling, running buddy
    October 15, 2017 by RunmamaMD from United States

    I moved states 3 months ago and moved away from my dear running buddies. I started listening to this podcast on runs and just love it. I tell loads of people about it and also appreciate the companionship as I have started trail running and needed a new ‘buddy!’ Today I listened to an old episode with the kiwi female author ceo. I was so grateful to hear a working mom talking about living wildly. I’m a doctor and a mama and I strive to stay wild while living kind of a mainstream existence. Thanks for everything I’ll keep passing on how great your show is!!! Don’t stop making podcasts! We need this kind of work!

    August 5, 2017 by MerandTy from United States

    Shelby is a natural. Her interview style is relaxed yet poised. She asks the questions I would want to ask if I was talking to Chris Sharma, Rebecca Rusch or Damien LeRoy. What a guest list!! It's all my favorites, but then also people I've never heard of that are doing incredibly wild adventures, and making a living from it. I am always looking forward to the next show. Definitely inspiring and brings hope that almost anything is possible. Thanks Shelby. Keep going!

  • Epic
    July 28, 2017 by throwingstones from United States

    I initially subscribed to Wild Ideas as a precursor to a month long trip to Bali. Obviously having such an epic time, I didn't even get started listening until recently, when I returned home. Your podcast has helped to maintain my stoke during Lake Atlantic summer flatness. I've been inspired by you and all of your guests and am beginning work on my own "Wild Idea." All the thoughts that have run through my head are so similar to what you and your guests have spoke of. So I guess I'm on the right path so far...

  • Inspiring!
    July 20, 2017 by LeahMB110384 from United States

    I started listening to this podcast first thing every morning -- before email and facebook and insta and news. Two years ago I was feeling restless and decided to take a solo trip to Alaska. Ever since returning to my "real life" in Denver, Colorado I've been daydreaming about moving to Alaska. I always framed it in my head as a daydream because I didn't have a real reason to do it. I have a perfectly fine life here in Colorado but "am I just supposed to just drive to and from the office every day until I retire!?" goes through my head almost every day. The interview with Steph Jagger about the false narrative about needing to hit rock bottom before making big, brave moves and then about focusing on starting lines instead of finish lines has been stuck in my head for weeks. I've decided to move to Alaska because it seems like a starting line that's been calling to me -- I have no idea what will come of it but thanks to Shelby and her guests, I can't ignore it any more. So thank you, for putting this content out there and having amazing guests and asking interesting questions. This is a rare podcast that is making a real impact.

  • Great stuff!
    June 19, 2017 by ymeabay from United States

  • Inspiring!
    May 19, 2017 by AndrewKMalloy from United States

    Wild Ideas Worth Living has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I first started listening when the episode with Chris Burkard was uploaded. Since then, it has been a weekly source of inspiration, as well as motivation to continue learning. Shelby is a great host, leading each guest in sharing their thoughts and stories. One of my favorite recurring questions is, “If you could fly an eco-friendly plane with a banner displaying a message for the world to see, what would you have that banner say?”

 Another reoccurring theme in the podcast is the quote, “We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.” If you are spending time listening to this podcast, you headed in a good direction!

  • SUPER INSPIRING. Great Content + all-around awesomeness.

    I stumbled upon Wild Ideas Worth Living via Instagram and am so glad I found it. I'm taking a leap of my own this year i.e. - quiting my job, traveling the world with my wife, and starting a environmental/socially focused company.. Honestly, this podcast is what I needed to give me a little bit of extra confidence. I love all aspects from the health questions to book recommendations. I look forward to listening to all future podcasts that Shelby puts out! JUST LISTEN! You wont' regret it. Cheers!

    May 11, 2017 by TinyCapt from United States

    Educational, fun & funny, and I come away from each episode feeling ready to tackle my own wild ideas! Shelby's guests are interesting and super inspiring and she knows how to ask the questions that help us understand how they went after their Wild Idea, what the rewards have been, and how to help us overcome our own uncertainties about pursuing a curiosity, idea, or passion of our own. Keep em coming! 😀

    April 21, 2017 by Robyn Dunning from New Zealand

    Just wanted to say what an awesome podcast this is. Not only do you share stories from such a variety of people, but you provide such awesome resources as well. In the past year I have been working to change my lifestyle into being more ethically and environmentally conscious, and just a few months ago I entered the world of podcasts, and I just LOVE your promotion for ethically minded companies and your encouragement to think about where our food comes from. This summer your podcasts have kept me inspired and motivated as I listened whilst working on an orchard to save for my next adventure (and study costs), but the stories I heard were truly the highlight of my day! ? Also thanks for such thorough show notes- its always so great to read over them and get the links once I get home from work or once I'm out of the car. This is quality content which is sure to leave you feeling positive, inspired and uplifted!!!

    Shelby sounds like she's smiling ear to ear throughout every single interview. It's refreshing to hear someone so excited to talk to people and to learn more from them. The podcast is inspiring and refreshing, and Shelby does a great job keeping it fun and relevant for listeners like me, who wouldn't do 90% of the things discussed in the podcast.

    Shelby does such a great job hosting and bringing on awesome guests. The episodes are entertaining and inspiring. Now I just need to get my wife to listen so we can quit our jobs and find a way to be one of Shelby's guests!

  • Inspired by this
    January 20, 2017 by Aaron Brunet from New Zealand

    I just listened to the episode with Alison from Hawaii and felt super inspired by everything she talked about. Shelby really got her to open up and she shared all sorts of fascinating stories about her life and philosophy. I played some of it to my daughter who also loved it and now has Alison as one of her role models for how to life an exciting and fulfilling life. Great stuff, thanks heaps Shelby for doing this and sharing it with everyone 🙂

    This podcast really captured my attention, which can be hard to do! The host, Shelby, has not only chosen interesting people to interview, but each episode really leaves you feeling inspired to revisit and pursue your own wild ideas that you may have abandoned. Love it! Thank you Shelby, and thank you to the guests, for reminding us that we are capable of just about anything if we keep an open mind and a positive attitude. Keep the wild ideas coming!

    Wild Ideas Worth Living is a weekly reminder that there are amazing people doing incredible things all around us. The interviews are as fascinating as they are fun and engaging - Shelby finds unique people and asks the questions I wouldn't even think to ask. Every episode leaves me inspired and wishing it was next week already!

    This podcast is so inspiring for a person like me (a running newbie) who can't even imagine running more than 3-4 miles a day. Pete is so humble when he talks about his achievements and Shelby does an incredible job interviewing him. She asked all of the questions that were running through my head as I listened to the podcast--and more. I can't wait to listen to more Wild Ideas Worth Living.

    January 18, 2017 by kkatie32 from United States

    I am absolutely loving these podcasts! Not only am I getting the opportunity to learn about these courageous and incredible people's unique journeys, but it's firing me up to go live out my own wild ideas. Because, why not?! Shelby asks such interesting questions that really allows the guests to open up and share their story to the fullest. The stories are rich and enlightening. Love having them on while in my car or when I'm going for walks. Thank you for the inspiration! WIWL is my favorite podcast!

    This is so fun. Who couldn't use a bit of creative disruption in their life? I love celebrating the idea of getting up and leaving for a brighter day. Often, our hearts have worn a path somewhere that our feet never seem to go. Keep going or start going. And listen here for clues.

    January 16, 2017 by Yogitalk Steph from United States

    I don't consider myself an "Outdoorsy" type of person so I didn't think this podcast was for me. This podcast was so much more! It's very smart, insightful, some spirituality, faith in yourself and tons of story telling. I really enjoyed listening to the guest and the host personality shines through. I'm fired up to make 2017 the best year so far!!

    It's rare a podcast has guests that have these type of inspiring adventures to share. The host is great at thought provoking asking questions. My favorite is the Naked and Afraid show...

  • Creative, Fun, Inspiring and Very Well Done!
    January 8, 2017 by Valkyrie Voyage from United States

    Shelby has been a friend of mine for a couple years now and when I heard she had started this podcast and was interviewing some really amazing people I couldn't wait to hear the episode about Ryan and Nicole Levinson. My husband to be and I are about to sail accross the Pacific...oh yea...after we get married. Ryan and Nicole have done it and their story is so amazing! Shelby knew all the right questions to ask to get the most dynamic story out of these two amazing adventurers. Shelby is witty, smart and dynamic. It's not a unilateral story line, rather, she takes you through the entire experience with the people she is interviewing. Since listening to the podcast, Jesse and I have had a two hour conversation with our new friends and inspirations, Ryan and Nicole, who have given us some invaluable tidbits of information. Thank you Shelby. Keep spreading the good word about the amazing people in our world. I can't wait to hear more!

    December 28, 2016 by Podcastloverrrrr from United States

    I love this podcast mostly becasue the subject is awesome. I feel like I am listening to an intimate conversation with someone who has gone after their wildest dream and made it happen. As someone who has struggled with doubt and fear myself, I love hearing about others who have made their dreams happen. And It's a good length for a podcast show.

    December 21, 2016 by Marcelo Bengoechea from United States

    I love all the different people Shelby interviews. The conversations are not only motivating and inspiring, but Shelby asks questions that delve deep and draws the listener in.

I hope everyone tunes inand shares these with their friends - because you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to!

  • Amazing podcast, host, and guests...
    December 19, 2016 by Ryan Levinson from United States

    I'm biased because I love Shelby (who doesn't?) but these podcasts easily rank amongst the best I've heard. Shelby's enthusiasm, humor, and fun-spirited approach to life shine through and leave you feeling like you are you talking story with some good friends. Her questions are the kind that make you think, "yeah, why is that?" and the guests she hosts have unique perspeectives and experiences that are both inspirational and directly relevant to your own life. Wild Ideas Worth Living is a wave you will be stoked to ride.

    Cindy's skateboarding interview really hit home- I grew up skateboarding with my brother in the 70's. She perfectly describes how difficult it was for young girls to enjoy the awesome fun of skating. Shelby is a great interviewer and I'm looking forward to listening to more of her podcasts.

  • Learning what makes a wild idea worth living
    December 9, 2016 by The Gretsky from United States

    Wild Ideas Worth Living is such a motivating and inspiring podcast. A lot of people have thought about changing their current situation into something that may seem outlandinsh. However, they haven't made the change because they lack the motivation or confidence to make the leap. Hearing how others have followed their wild idea hopefully give those people the confidence to make that change, to take that leap and follow their wild idea. I know it has for me! These are the true stories about the grit and the grind, the ups and the downs, the laughs and the tears that come with following your heart. The people Shelby has interviewed are real, honest & funny. Shelby does a great job taking you on a journey of turning a Wild Idea into something Worth Living.

    December 8, 2016 by GoOutsideNow from United States

    I love this podcast. It's chocked full of inspiring people who have taken a wild idea and brought it to life, their life. The host, Shelby Stanger, is a pro and does a great job asking the right questions at the right time so the guests are comfortable opening up and giving us the goods. I learn so much listening to the interviews. From how they came up with the idea, to how they made it a reality. It makes me want to come up with more wild ideas to add to my life. If you want to expand your world and hear exactly what others have done and how they did it, this is the podcast for you. Shelby keeps it fun and entertaining as well. I'm looking forward to the next episode and the next wild idea. Keep 'em coming!
