Host Archana Ram explores the foundational nature of knowledge, and asks the questions that matter about our relationship with each other and the natural world. How are lessons passed through generations to help us feel at home? What barriers prevent us from acquiring natural wisdom? How can we adapt in the face of a rapidly changing climate? And so much more. Knowledge acts as a vessel; it must be shared, kept, evolved, and passed on. Please join us at Patagonia Stories.
What barriers keep us from experiencing nature? In this episode, we share stories of people who are building access to the outdoors. First, we go on a run with Kiko and Kyra Sweeney in Mazanita, Oregon. As a blind runner, Kyra explains how the sport hasn’t always been accessible to her and why being part of a family of runners has changed that. We also hear from journalist Sofia Arredondo about Raúl Revilla Quiroz, one of the fathers of Mexican rock climbing who made his own gear back in the 1940s and 1950s and helped establish a tight-knit climbing community in the region. At the Patagonia Archives, Terri shares the story of one of her favorite items—a $9 piece of climbing gear that made its way from Yvon Chouinard’s car back in 1966 to our headquarters 40 years later.
