About

The Brave Monkeys Speak Podcast was born out of my desire to tell creative non-fiction adventure stories in a way that has real-world meaning (or lessons) for my audience ("what's in it for me?"), and from my love for analyzing the science behind adventurous activities. But... there's more. At the beginning of 2013, I decided to write a book covering these subjects called Becoming a Brave Monkey. After finishing most of the book, I realized that in talking with people across the country and world while on my travels I had heard a number of AMAZING stories and learned a lot of really cool stuff that unconventional thinkers can use to design a freaking awesome life for themselves.

I love listening to podcast interviews, but I got bored of the podcast circuit being the same-old people who are already successful and may have forgotten what it was like when they weren't successful! I'll strive to interview the people who are still in the thick of chasing their dreams, and are facing the challenges of doing so. The result? A podcast that delivers a combination of awesome stories, interviews with inspiring people, and a scientific analysis of adventure.

I love the idea of it so much that I feel like it could go on indefinitely - there are so many stories out there and I love the challenge of telling them in a creative and scientific manner. But, this Kickstarter Campaign will guarantee 30 episodes over the next 6 months - this includes one week (the opening week) of five episodes (one every day) and then a normal schedule of one episode released every single Monday. Rad!

I have already begun the interview process for the podcast - we have everything from Olympic Athletes to Ultra-Runners to PhD's that are getting involved in the discussions and telling their stories!

The funds that we are raising for the podcast will go towards the costs of 1. The development of the rad stuff I want to give you, the backers, 2. A hosting service to allow the .mp3 files to be uploaded and freely distributed, 3. A few pieces of equipment to make my sound of a more professional quality (I already have most of the equipment I need), 4. The development of a sweet Brave Monkey Logo that will go on the T-shirts and look totally rad at the crag.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge for the project will be getting the technology involved in the podcast all integrated. It's not rocket science and I have most of it figured out, but it is a bit of a challenge to integrate with my current website setup. Other than that, expect a Podcast every Monday and some awesome rewards!
