Nicholas Rodriks joins me today to have a nice rip on our friend Brogan Graham. And after we move on from that, we learn more about Nick as a former lacrosse player, NP Baltimore co-leader, and current owner of Fishercat River Company- a guiding and fly fishing company which uses that platform for improved education on conservation and environmenta…
 
Winnie Lok is on the show today! Winnie is my kind of runner, she LOVES to race. With over 250 road races and many trail and ultras under her belt, she loves the racing atmosphere and a great swag bag. Today we dive right into her recent race experience, just finishing the Speed Project hours before our call. Winnie's team was originally planning o…
 
Three years ago I sat down with my friend Jorge and got to know him even better. We talked about growing up in NY and CT, how he ended up out west, and his first time ever camping. We started to discuss the barriers to entry in the outdoors for marginalized populations, but never truly got into the meat of the topic. Today, years later and what fee…
 
This week is a short catch up with my friend Brogan Graham. After I officially stepped away from the November Project HQ team last week, BG wanted to check in and requested to interview me. As always, we went off the rails a little bit, but it’s a fun little trip down memory lane as we discuss NP cities and leaders from years past and a host of top…
 
Today I have Jesse Dubin on the show! I wanted to learn more about the gender spectrum and pronouns, but I also absolutely love talking to Jesse and wanted to hear more about their story. I always think there is more value in getting to know the background of the person you’re talking to before you fully dive in, so thats what we do, we hear more a…
 
Today I’m chatting with my friend Maggie. Maggie MayKei is a longtime member of November Project NYC and Brooklyn, where she is a current co-leader. Over the past couple years she has written some beautifully powerful blogs on the NP website which provide insight into her life as an Asian-American growing up and living in Brooklyn NY. As November P…
 
Today I am honored to share with you a conversation I had with Dana Bogan. Dana and I get in deep almost immediately which is something I think she excels at as a medical social worker and just simply a caring individual. We discuss the intersectionality of being a bi-racial woman with a physical disability and mental health disorder and how she ha…
 
Today we have another cross over episode from November Project the show, hosted by Tywon Thompson. Tywon is joined by two NP co-leaders, Kayode Adigun out of November Project Baltimore and Kwamye Boateng from November Project Kelowna in Canada. Both of these men have also written some very powerful blog posts in the past few months which are on the…
 
Adeoti Ashiru joins us today! Adeoti is a first generation Nigerian American and grew up in Rhode Island before attending Northeastern University in Boston before eventually heading out west where she lives in Santa Cruz County today. While I have known Ade since 2013, I was eager to get to know more of her story. She talks about her parents and th…
 
Today’s episode of Wisconsin Notes, has current co-leader of November Project Dallas, Tywon Thompson, as the host with guests Claudia Thompson and Vinnie Cent. These three have been in the NP world for years. They have experienced the ups and downs of the grassroots movement and have graciously given us their time and words on how they would like t…
 
We interrupt the Youtube episodes with another important topic, the uterus! Last week, the Supreme Court undercut access to birth control under Obamacare. Under the Affordable Care Act, churches and synagogues were automatically exempted from the birth control insurance mandate but not automatically exempt, were nonprofits like religiously affiliat…
 
Today’s episode of Wisconsin Notes was recorded a few days before Juneteenth with Tonieh Welland, friend and longtime member of November Project Milwaukee. You may recognize Tonieh from the NP film “Showing Up”. She’s a powerhouse yoga instructor, runner, mother, community leader, educator and graced us with her time and brain to teach us more abou…
 
James Broad is a dog Dad, a soon-to-be human Dad, a snow enthusiast, an entrepreneur, a loving husband, son, and brother, a yogi, and so much more. He's also a Black man and on this episode of NP The Show with Brogan Graham and Bojan Mandaric, James speaks candidly about the death of George Floyd and how growing up as a Black man in America has sha…
 
We have been very quiet over here the last month at Wisconsin Notes as we shut up and listened to those who for so long have not been heard. I personally didn’t think my voice needed to be on the airwaves so I let the professionals take the mic and I did a ton of reading, listening and discussing. Of course, that work continues and will continue fo…
 
Riley Pathman is a staple at November Project San Diego. He’s strong, joyful, has incredible endurance, and has a sarcastic and fun chauffeur named Jim, who also happens to be his Dad. Today on Wisconsin Notes, I have the honor of interviewing 2 of the 4 members of Team Pathman out in California. Over 20 years ago, Riley and his brother Shane were …
 
John Kohler is a father, a husband, the former founder of November Project Kansas City, and one of those insane ultra runners that signs up for 135 mile races through one of the hottest place in the United States, in the Badwater race series. Today we talk about it all, his FKT across the state of Kansas, how his wife and two babies were with him o…
 
Orrin Whalen is the former co-leader (founder) of November Project Los Angeles. He is a UK-born, Malibu-raised theatre enthusiast who is now a full time artist, working on his painting and sculptures in LA. His path to getting here, however, was far from straight. It's a fun story to hear, how you can end up leading glacier tours in Iceland and the…
 
Today I welcome back Brogan Graham for a little quarantine catch-up, alongside his brother, Dan Graham. Dan is checking in from his computer in the basement of his home, so not only is the sound quality not ideal, but the two of them keep forgetting we are recording a podcast and not a video. So I apologize for all the times I have to yell at them.…
 
Today I am hanging with one of the co-leaders of November Project Philadelphia, Vinny Carrano. On this episode Vinny tells us his story, from being a young child who tragically lost his older sister to cancer, to his life in the military serving 4 years for the Marine Corps Infantry as a Corporal (E4), the ongoing affects his deployment in Afghanis…
 
Ah, brotherly love. In today's episode, we have returning guest, Chris Heuisler, and this time he is joined by his younger brother, Tim. In many ways these two couldn't be more opposite (as shown in this photo). At the time of recording, Chris was the Global Run Concierge for Westin Hotels, and is still is an avid marathon runner, father of two, do…
 
This episode was recorded back in February when I traveled up to Ottawa to visit the lovely ladies of November Project Ottawa for their Wednesday workout, which also happened to be an ice skating workout on their river. It was all very Canadian which is what I live for. The night before the workout I sat down with Elizabeth or Liz Mackenzie and Lau…
 
Today I have one of my most favorite people ever, Jacob Conway, on the show. We sit down in his Manhattan apartment to discuss his plant based milk start up, veganism, NYC city living as a CA raised boy, and coming out as a gay man to his parents. All the normal topics. There is a lot of laughing, so I hope you at least enjoy this conversation amon…
 
Not sure why or how, but I caved to the immense social media pressure to allow my friends Eric and Britto to take over as guest hosts on the newest episode of Wisconsin Notes. This interview is with Mike Burstein and Dave Spandorfer, the co-founders of Janji, a running apparel company founded in 2012 and headquartered in Boston. The company is nota…
 
When we gathered in San Francisco to tell short stories, we told the story tellers that the theme is "fear." To have such a vague topic is hilarious because you can always place your story in the category with a certain level of justification. In this episode of WI Notes, we have Billy and Nicolas. Billy starts us off with his story about how an un…
 
Claire Wood and Keith Kelly both wear a lot of hats. Claire is the SBU Manager at New Balance, overseeing the product creation for global running footwear, is a talented runner, and hilarious storyteller. Keith is also an employee of New Balance in Boston, was an incredible runner back in the day, winning the 2000 NCAA Division 1 Cross Country Cham…
 
A couple weeks ago a large group of November Project leaders gathered in San Francisco for the endurance challenge series put on by the north face. Unfortunately, due to the Camp Fire and poor air quality, all of the races were cancelled. So here we were in San Francisco, staying in a large victorian rental home unable to venture outside with nothi…
 
On November 8th, the Camp Fire in northern California grew rapidly and burned through 10,000 acres in under 90 minutes. The rate at which the fire spread was unprecedented which is tragically why the death toll is the highest in history. It destroyed more structures than the previously worst 6 wildfires combined. That's more than 17,000 structures …
 
Bringing it back this week to our friend and professional trail runner, Clare Gallagher. We first posted this episode almost a year ago the night before a fun little endurance challenge race in Utah. I had almost 2 hours of audio to edit through and still this is a shuffled mess. But hey! It makes me really happy. Enjoy this manic walk down memory …
 
Soooooo, I had a baby. A real life human. His name is Jack and he's the man. While having a newborn at home is incredible, joyous, and amazing, the labor and delivery was something completely different. On this episode of Wisconsin Notes, Brogan Graham hosts and we get real. Very real. I hope you enjoy the banter, ridiculous conversation, and learn…
 
We love to say, "You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning." Well here are two men who have been struck (or kissed) by lightning and lived to tell the tale. Maybe this phenomenon is more likely than people claim? Or maybe we just have to stop hanging out by large bodies of water during storms. Either way, enjoy today's short story epi…
 
Emily Saul is the booming voice you hear on the steps of Harvard Stadium every Wednesday morning. She's strong, intimidating, and powerful. Now strip her of November Project, put her in front of a mic, and where does the conversation lead? Today's episode is a raw look inside where she came from, how she became the woman she is today, and what is n…
 
Today we have one of my favorite people to catch up with, Mary Arnold, who is always so hard to pin down because she’s never not on the move. Mary is an ultra runner out of Harlem, NY who has completed 75 races of marathon distance or longer. She is also a fixture in the NYC running scene, with her curly red hair and fiery cheering voice, she’s eas…
 
We all have a history; an Amazon shopping history, to be precise. The things we search for (and often buy) on the internet paints a picture of who we are, what our hobbies are, and how we choose to spend our hard earned money. If someone were to look at your purchase history what would they learn about you? Well, Erin Briskie is with me today to te…
 
Back for a second (and much more in depth) round is our friend Steve Procknal. Steve has been a Baptiste Certified yoga instructor for over 5 years, is an avid community leader via yoga instruction in the countless arenas, and is a co-leader of November Project Buffalo. Through personal experiences and world travel, Steve's journey to where he is t…
 
A couple weeks ago I called my sister, a certified holistic nutritionist, with a list of questions I fielded from a collection of runners, weight lifters, and avid Netflix watchers. While the scope of her practice may focus on endurance athletes, the truth is that anyone and everyone could benefit from re-evaluating what they are putting in their b…
 
Hillary Allen is a professional sky runner who tackles some of the steepest trail races around the world. But what makes her even more incredible, is her ability to bring the conversation down to human level and relate to every person she talks to. Last year, Hillary fell 150 feet from a ridge line while racing in Norway, breaking dozens of bones w…
 
You're on a 50 mile bike ride and your stomach begins to rumble. With each mile it gets worse, and worse, and worse. Finally, you come across a restroom, but the only stall is in use. And just when it becomes available...you realize you already released it all into your biking spandex. What do you do next? Most likely go home. Well, Weston kept rid…
 
You know the milk mustache athletes? The ones that are celebrated in Sports Illustrated as “Athletes to watch” and they all end up being either CEO’s of major companies or olympics athletes? Well our guests today, Carly and Andrew, were two of those athletes. The story is short and sweet, but even after 3 and a half years of being together you can …
 
"Let's make a pact. If we are still single at the end of the month, we will meet up in the middle of England for a run and brunch." A simple plan turned into an adventurous romance. A weekend away on the first date. Meeting the family on the third date. Moving in together-halfway around the world- after only seeing each other in the flesh a half do…
 
So we all do it, but most people don’t love talking about it. I guess unless you’re a November Project leader. Today we have 3 short stories about…poop. A few weeks ago there were about 15 leaders from around the globe gathered in a San Francisco home, telling stories and learning more about one another. The poop topic just kept coming up, so we ro…
 
It’s no secret that there is a lack of diversity in the outdoor world and our guest on Wisconsin Notes today, Jorge Moreno, is on a mission to change that. My conversation with Jorge paints a picture of what growing up in an urban environment with little exposure to the outdoors was like for him and how he stumbled upon a community in San Francisco…
 
Today on Episode 11 we have Kelly Roberts. Kelly is a body positive activist who jumped on an opportunity 4 years ago and turned it into an international following to inspire women across the globe to start believing in themselves and show the world that strength doesn’t just look one particular way, nor is achieved alone. She has a force of powerf…
 
Chris Heuisler is a lot of things. He is the RunWESTIN Concierge for Westin Hotels and Resorts, an actor, a father & husband, a competitive runner, and a really great storyteller. His job and excellent networking skills have gotten him in the mix with some of the fastest runners in the world, but we rarely get to hear more about who Chris actually …
