Dispatch Radio is an outdoor adventure podcast produced by and for those who love to get active in nature. Each month DR hosts gather some of the most inspiring athletes, authors and outdoor leaders we can find for fun and wide-ranging discussions. Shows are often recorded live from local outdoors shops and breweries along Colorado’s Front Range – and at The Studio (Boulder).
Our vision is to be a convener for active, adventurous adults and the brands we love.
The podcast was founded in Boulder in 2016 by a group of runners, bikers, skiers and climbers with a passion for storytelling, following a chance meeting over an ultrarunning message board.
While we’re still scrappy hobbyists at heart, we’ve grown up since we the first episode we recorded in Laurie’s basement (“Basement Stories”). We have hosted live shows in venues across the Front Range and reported stories as far away as Asheville, N.C. We’ve interviewed dozens of athletes, authors, activists, entrepreneurs and others who are shaping the outdoors conversation here in Colorado and beyond.
In May 2018 we debuted our live event series Rare Air Talks in partnership with The Studio (Boulder) and the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office. The topic was Diversity + Inclusion in Our Outdoors Community. You can listen to the talks on our podcast stream by playing it directly from the “Listen Now” page of our website, or by playing episodes from Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast player.
