Athlete On Fire

It’s raining men (and women… mostly women, actually) on this sky high episode of Dispatch Radio. Join hosts Kelly Cornish-McConnell, Laurie Nakauchi and Cory Feign as they go well above and beyond our usual 5,280’ and meet some people experienced in the art of jumping out of or off things and safely returning to earth to discuss what they just did on a podcast. Adventure journalist Jayme Moye gets inspired covering a paragliding recon mission to jump off Kilimanjaroand ends up taking the plunge herself with Vail Valley Paragliding in our own backyard. Yogi Steph Schwartz talks about her transition from ultra-runner to yogi to badass skydiver and skydiving instructor and how mindfulness factors into both disciplines. World hang glider speed record holder Ben Herring introduces us all to hang gliding and discusses how he balances his decades-long obsession with being a dad and working full time (Hint: it involves sharing his passion with others).
