THE LAWLESS PODCAST

Curated Conversations with people of interest.

CREATED BECAUSE I ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS.

( and am always, always over-sharing )

The Lawless podcast is my answer to unravelling drive, motivation and the forces that have brought about exceptional lives.

They are my curated conversations with people of interest who have pushed back from conventional business and are sharing stories and legacies in the making.

 

People who value innovation, sustainability, art and expression over a predetermined level of success.

Join me every week where I introduce people from start-ups, to artists, athletes, bureacrats, philanthropists to thriving business owners who have done it on their own terms.

 

The struggle is real and so are their stories.

EPISODES

This is the first (of many – I am sure) of a new series I am calling THE QUARANTINE SESSIONS – tales from our cribs. And I’m delighted that my first guest in the series is Chris Rubens / @chrisrubens of Revelstoke, British Columbia (where we are chatting from remotely). Chris is a very solid, woke individual that gives a lot to his sport, the community and the world. He grew up in Canmore, BC with another favourite Eric Hjorleifson (#ep23). If there was one thing I took away from this podcast is that what we do as an individual has an impact on the world (timely as well). He’s a POW (protect our winters) ambassador and we touch on a lot of these things blended throughout a few ski chats and our little dip into the old days. Before you listen maybe you should watch ‘Guilt Trip’ by Salomon TV – I’m going to watch it now. I wish I had of watched it prior to the interview… but the interview got me fired up to watch it. #EP41 #chrisrubens #agem Premise to ‘GUILT TRIP’: The only thing greater than this group of skier's desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, who’s scientific hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft. Shot on location in Greenland.

Joel Loverin is my absolute Favourite. Pretty much since the first time I met him. And then I went out in the mountains with him and realized he’s an absolute boss on his board, on his sled, on a rope swing, in a fishing boat and now on a Mountain Bike. He’s got an unparalleled passion and love for life. He tells great tales, a lot of them from the mountains around us and in Alaska. I hope you enjoy this podcast and get inspired to learn more about ropes and pursuing your passions or just generally getting after it. @joel_loverin — thanks for all the stories.

Martin Gallant has earned the name the Godfather. My favourite part about interviewing him (well maybe my second favourite part) was when he told me he tries to pass on all of his knowledge like people did for him, he rides from the heart and he tries to live a generous life because BC taught him that. My favourite part of this interview was that we recorded it in a hot sauna and then did three cold plunges over the course of an hour. He’s been shaping snowboarding since the 90’s and his life is led in pursuit of DA LAUNCH and DA SLASH and luckily DA SAUNA. He’s resourceful, wants people to be real… and I’m proud to count him amongst my friends.

Chris Winter is a real delight. When I first moved to Whistler in the early 2000’s All I knew about Chris Winter is that he was a pro skier and he started a charity… zero ceiling and at that point in my life… it blew my mind. So I would think this interview/chat is long overdue … for he is someone that I have always had a certain amount of awe mixing with respect with and now I can add gracious and humble to his list of attributes. I won’t go into too much more. But rest assured that Chris Winter is the real deal. And we recorded this podcast in Whistler, BC where he lives with his wife and two children and is always getting after it.

Micayla Gatto is a free ride Mountain Biking champ. And by champion I mean she champions life, and she did podium on the world Downhill tour before her career shapeshifted. She’s quite a force and is in constant pursuit of her personal best. She’s all that you would expect from a lady of British Columbia -- an artist, a musician, a mountain biker, funny as … but the real reason I wanted to interview her was because of the way I felt when I watched her Ferda Girls Parody of Kendrick Lamar’s Be Humble with her all female cast that really pumps you up through her spin on her own narrative. If you haven’t watched it … do it before you listen. Go to youtube and typer in Ferda girls that f-e-r-d-a girls.. It’ll get you in the exact frame of mind to listen to this podcast that took place at her home in Squamish, BC on a Fall day in 2019.

Gabe Langlois / @gabelanglois I don’t think it was until I sat down to talk with the Gabe that I realized what a great man he is. For one he’s married to one of my favourite ladies Leah Langlois… they regularly host me on Christmas… so in addition to being a great friend … I really like the way he follows where his passion leads him. He’s an award winning cinematographer, director and editor and on top of that he makes some of the Best Snowboards that are hand made by machines in Pemberton, BC. He loves snowboarding. Core Snowboarding in his own words. I always enjoy chatting with Gabe and appreciate how he always takes the time to have a convo with me.. even though I know he’s one of the busiest. He fills his time and I think his latest achievement to date is the Spa Langlois which sits on his property looking at Mt. Currie, which I hope to relax in soon. So here we are… chatting with Gabe from Team Shimoda…. A very talented man.

JULES. Julia Murray is one of the most positive people I know. She's a ski cross olympian and a vegan. Born and raised in Whistler, BC she is the Canadian dream, born to parents Dave Murray and Stephanie Sloan. I've known her for half her life and I think she's the bomb. She's also ridiculously motivated and inspiring.

If Eric Hoji Hjorleifson isn’t ( @hojboss ) known to you. Well you probably don’t ski. And you definitely don’t ski tour. I think he might be the closest thing to a living legend. As he’s got a feature film called HOJI the story of Eric Hjorleifson. It came out last year by Matchstick and it’s an hour and twenty minute look into the mind of HOJI and the last fifteen years of footage of him skiing in Matchstick Movies. I think I’ll just read to you what it says there. Eric Hjorleifson lets his skiing speak for itself. He doesn’t stand on the bar and shout out his accolades. He skis for brands that give him 100% creative control over the equipment that he designs and uses. He chases storms. He ditches his cell phone for weeks at a time. His exploit are rarely flaunte don social media. In spite of all of this – or maybe because of it – he is a hero to legions of skiers across the globe. This is who Eric is – this is HOJI. And it’s true… Since the very first day I met him at the age of 17 at Sunshine Vilalge. He has been the same. Humble, insanely talented, innovative and I think he sees the world as a series of problems or maybe he doesn’t see problems he only sees opportunities or solutions that he can build upon. He’s a deep thinker and I pulled him out of his machining shop to do this interview with me at his home in whistler. Enjoy.

Murray Siple – Is an artist, filmmaker and incredible human. We talk about him, his art, his wheel chair, his pursuits and a lot about his documentary CARTS OF DARKNESS which is a much-watch for all of us. It’s so freaking good. This man cannot stop creating. And I think we are lucky for it. Checking out his house (which was featured in dwell) and all of his artwork inspired me so much that I’m going to go back and film it.

Delaney Zayak // is a man of the seasons. He’s an organic farmer who likes to get gnarly. He lives on a 5 acre farm in Pemberton with his wife, two kids and his dog Coco(a). He rolls with a crew of Adventure Dads that get after it, like none I’ve seen before. He’s smart, he’s scientific and he’s reflective.

Melissa Schneiderova is an incredible human and she has one of the craziest stories. And the thing that is most inspiring is that for all that she has gone through she has maintained a very positive outlook on life. She’s fierce and feminine which is one of my favourite combos… after recording this podcast I realized that she could probably take me down in one punch…. Because she owns a title in boxing, she’s an ironman and she has experienced more loss than almost anyone I know and yet she still burns very brightly and has the most generous heart. Such an inspiring way to start Season 2!

Melissa Schneiderova

My fave. And probably yours. @taylorgodber — she’s an infinite supply of positivity, perspective, strength, wisdom, inspiration and kindness all rolled up in an athlete, artist, chef, scholar, teacher and writer / editor. And she’s just as talented on a snowboard as she is with a paint brush in her hand or clicking keys on her computer’s keyboard. Take your time digesting this podcast. It’s a two hour journey — dense with story, rants and a million other things. My friend Taylor ! I love her #ep34

Ian Millar is a lifelong explorer, snowboarder, product designer, father, photographer and one of the deepest thinkers I know. He founded the adventure camera bag company Shimoda Designs that I fan out on. He’s always thinking progression. He lives in Hakuba, Japan and this is my first remote podcast. A true visionary.And whether he’s telling me to stop turning my snowboard and point it or that I should start taking more photos when I’m out amongst… I appreciate his unsolicited advice because it pushes me to be a better version of myself… and maybe gives me a little boost or confidence to drop into unfamiliar territory.. And there is one day left of Ian’s Kickstarter to get a Shimoda Bag of your own and start getting after it and capturing it with your camera lens.

Nate Nash is a man of adventure. He is an American man living in Pemberton British Columbia. He has spent his entire life inspiring others by his work behind cameras showcasing sports in some of the most captivating parts of the world. But most of all he is a great human being who looks at the world with a lot of compassion. I quite love this conversation because he is a storyteller and we touch on adventure, loss, injury and resilience. We recorded it in the early Summer.. but I waited until now to release it because on October 29th.. HBO SPORTS is premiering a film he produced for Red Bull Media House.. the film ‘ANY ONE OF US’ which follows Paul Basagoitia’s journey of recovery from a devastating spinal cord injury at Red Bull Rampage (which is happening right now in Utah). Enjoy.

When you wake up in the morning you should think about listening to this guy .... @speedlazer of @marblecanyon #ep24jaygreenway Jay Greenway was born and raised in Pemberton, British Columbia. And he is the musician behind the Lawless Podcast. Because he's a songwriter he can get deep. Unfortunately we attempted this podcast three times before crushing it.

Leslie Anthony is a lot of things. For one he’s a doctor, a professor, a writer and an author (somehow they seem like different things), a herpetologist and probably the only person I know whose intelligence and scope of knowledge could rival a smart phones. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed being a part of it. Get ready to google some of his terminology and think a little deeper.

Basically I created this podcast to save my friends from having to listen to me try to recreate the stories and exchanges that leave me pumped up full of inspiration. A place that only gets accessed when you go deep, get uncomfortable and intimate. And by sharing our stories we make our world a little bigger.

The people are Lawless in their approach to life and you never know who inspires me on the daily; like the man that drives his truck on veggie oil or the girl who decided she could raise twenty-two million dollars to start a university.

 

I picture you listening to these conversations when you are making dinner, driving long distances without cell reception or cleaning out the gutters of your home.

- Enjoy
