REI presents Wild Ideas Worth Living, a podcast that shares stories of adventure and beyond. On each show, host and adventure journalist Shelby Stanger interviews world-class explorers, scientists, athletes, adventurers, and entrepreneurs about how they’ve taken their own wild ideas and made them a reality, so you can too. From people who have climbed the tallest peaks, to people who have started new businesses, broken records, surfed giant waves, sailed across the Pacific, travelled to every country in the world, or just stood up for something they believed in, some of the wildest ideas often lead to the most rewarding adventures. Previous guests include Climber Chris Sharma, Surfer Bethany Hamilton, Skier Caroline Gleich, Filmmaker Cyrus Sutton, Runner Dean Karnazes, Sailor Liz Clark, Snowboarder Kelly Clark, Freediver Kimi Werner, Minimalist and Activist Rob Greenfield, Photographer Chris Burkard, Author Chris McDougall, November Project Founder Brogan Graham, fasting expert Alan Goldhamer, Triathlete Brendan Brazier, Paralympian Alana Nichols, Comedian JP Sears, and more.

Rob’s Wild Idea: To live a sustainable, minimalist lifestyle and inspire others to do the same. To do awesome adventures and spread the message of good in the world.

Rob Greenfield is an adventurer and environmental activist who is making a difference for our planet. An Eagle Scout who grew up in a small town of Wisconsin, Rob’s had and executed a ton of wild ideas. He cycled across the U.S.A. three times on a bamboo bike (without a ton of cycling experience and only drinking from natural sources while creating zero waste) to raise awareness about sustainability. He dove into more than 2,000 dumpsters across the country to raise awareness about food waste (and to show we throw away perfect food). He travelled to different countries with just the clothes on his back and zero money just to show that people are inherently good. He lived in a tiny house. And, for one of my personal favorite projects, Rob lived like the average American and wore all the trash he created for a month in New York City, to raise awareness about food waste. 

Rob’s written a book (and it’s endorsed by Jerry of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream), given multiple TED Talks, and is a fascinating guy who wants to make a positive impact on our planet and the lives we lead.
