    I have been listening to this podcast for about a month now and it has been the best thing for where I am in my life. Each and every person featured on this show has such talent, drive, and knowledge to share with listeners. Plus, Shelby is the most charismatic host whose curiosity and charm make these conversations that much more intriguing. For people like me who have taken risks to pursue a dream, people who want to know more about careers in the outdoors, or people who simply seek new information about a better quality of life, this is a fantastic podcast. Keep it going!
