Someone else plugged the Yeti series a few pages back. I go through phases of watching their videos periodically, but really love the storytelling and cinematography. I think it initially took me about 10 of the videos before realizing they were an advert for high end coolers.
I watched this one about the Malloy brothers again over the weekend. It hits on different types of adventures - those of a stable vs. a nomadic nature - which I've been thinking a lot about. Also touches on the balance of family and adventure.
Afterwards I listened to a podcast with Dan Malloy, the youngest brother, interviewed by JT Van Zandt who is the son of Townes Van Zandt. Around the 30 minute mark he shifts from talking about surfing and mentions encountering a Wendell Berry article that challenged his thinking about community, family, independence, and freedom. Interesting to see creative, successful people gravitate towards a renaissance lifestyle (surfer, farmer, songwriter, filmmaker, father):
The story of JT Van Zandt is also quite interesting as he comes to grip with his father and his relationship to work:
I listened to his podcast today with Jimmy Chin. This was recorded before Free Solo was released so it is quite different than a lot of the interviews and material with Jimmy Chin. Worth a listen for anyone interested in climbing, photography, or outdoor adventures:
