    On the Second Half of the Show : Chris Salka from The Survival Channel®

    Our channel has been set up for those who love nature, hiking, backpacking and adventure. Many tune into our channel because they wish to live vicariously through our videos and that's completely understandable. ... A little about myself: As many of you know, my name is Chris and I'm a family man first and an outdoors man second. While my heart is with my loved ones, but my soul is out and about with nature. There is nothing like exploring the world that we live in and that fuels my desire to see what's around the next corner. I started my channel/site to help others learn, grow, enjoy and appreciate the outdoors and the amazing world we live in. I also started it to leave something behind for my children so that they can enjoy the adventures that I too have enjoyed once I'm too old or passed on. ... Enjoy and thank you for watching.

    Tony Nobles - Worshiper, Intercessor, Pastor - Importance of the Gospel

    in Christianity

    Hello and blessings in the name of our Lord Jesus,

    My name is Tony Nobles and welcome to my web page. My lovely and beautiful wife and I currently live in Clarksville, Tennessee. We are preparing to move to the Nashville area as worship, prayer, and teaching missionaries to Tennessee. We are working with the Nashville House of Prayer and Worship City Prayer to intercede for revival, and to empower and inspire the local church to committed prayer. I have been a bi-vocational minister for many years, and I founded and lead the Clarksville House of Prayer as the Executive Director.

    My hobbies and interests include music, studying theology, and backpacking.

    My vision:

    To restore the Tabernacle of David by imparting a spirit-led environment based out of community that allows for deep communion with God through organic prayer and worship.

    My Mission is based on the great commission from Jesus Christ.

    Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

    My mission:

    To  go to people, cities, and nations and to make them disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming that all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus Christ, baptize them, and to teach all to obey everything Jesus Christ commands.

    A Catch Conversation with Summit Adventure's Tom Smith

    in Christianity

    We're excited to have Tom Smith, Executive Director of Summit Adventure on this podcast!

    From their website:

    At Summit Adventure, we use experiential education, adventure programming, service and cross-cultural immersion as tools to move individuals and groups out of their comfort zones into more reliance on God and each other. Since 1973, Summit Adventure has been leading the way as the premier Outdoor Ministry program. Participants throughout the years have told us that their experiences have been truly transformational, whether domestically in Yosemite, Joshua Tree and Death Valley or internationally in Ecuador, Mexico and Israel. Summit Adventure works with a wide range of groups, including youth (age 12+), college students, parents, adults and individuals with physical and mental disabilities. Although every course is different, typical course components include backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, rappelling, orienteering, trekking, cultural immersion and service.

    Interview with artist Parker-Weston

    in Art

    "At times, my skull feels it can no longer contain my thoughts. Now I know why monks drill holes in their heads, to air out.

    I reside in what is voted the most conservative big city in the United States, Mesa, Arizona. A concrete welcome-to-anywhere that is built on top of the desert like our human brains extending from mammal and reptile ones. When I was a child, an overpaid psychic told my mother that I would be a writer someday. I was very relieved later she was spared the news that along the way I would become a shop janitor and backpacking drifter before this writing business ever came into play. 

    Applying the collage or cut-up technique to every facet of my life as possible and letting my subconscious fill in the concepts, I collect refuse of reality to exercise general daily awareness. At times, I feel this is why I do not dream, or at least cannot remember dreaming; spent on lucidity by the time the lights go out. I feel more reactive than creative. I do not wish for any visual harmony between my pieces. They are all my children and they are constantly screaming for each of their fifteen minutes."

    Interview with Traveling Writer, Poet, and Philosopher Sean Michael Hayes

    in Education

    "I was on the cover Skateboard Canada at 18, met the president of Tahiti at 23, traveled the world and had a six-figure salary by the time I was 25…. And I was completely miserable."

    So excited to have Sean Michael Hayes on our podcast! Hayes is the author of Five Weeks in the Amazon, A backpackers journey: life in the Rainforest, Ayahuasca, and a Peruvian shaman's ancient diet.

    Sean Michael Hayes was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. In his younger years he was a professional skateboarder and broke lots of bones. This is what brought him to America, where he now lives in Encinitas, CA. He likes to head out into the world on solo backpacking adventures, and when he’s not coaching younger professionals skateboarders he’s doing something like diving with great white sharks in South Africa or living with a shaman in the Peruvian Jungle.  

    We will be talking to Sean about his incredible journey of healing, self discovery, and the pursuit to life's biggest questions. To connect with Sean his name is @canadianhayes on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Canadianhayes.com,

    Unlimited Life - Backpacking Blind: The Magnificent Story Of Alessandro Bordini

    in Culture

    Join Host Nicole Brandon for 90 minutes at 4 PM Eastern.

    Host Nicole Brandon is one of the most sought after speakers in the world today. From Health, and Wellness to Wealth and Ultimate Success her seemingly unlimited well of information is simply mind boggling.

    Please visit Nicole's website:


    Nicole's Guest:

    Alessandro Bordini

    And I thought I was the powertourist.

    “I can’t see the scenery or the architecture, obviously, but I like talking to people.”

    And as he speaks fluent English and French, the latter being an invaluable tool to get in the minds of many West and Central Africans, in a way he does experience more of some of those countries that many visually-able, camera-happy, unilingual English-speaking tourists might manage to.

    It’s also pretty obvious that aside from the freedom of the road, cultural interactions and other reasons, he does it to show he can. As a way to prove himself and the world that life doesn’t end with the lost of eyesight or other life-changing disability, that dreams can still come true if one goes to fetch them. Alessandro is the backpacker version of that guy who completed an Ironman triathlon paralyzed from the waist down, or that woman with only a few fingers on each hand who toured the world as a concert violonist. And I have to say it’s pretty inspiring.

    You can find Alessandro online at www.lightheplanet.net. The frontpage header is in Italian, but he mostly writes short blog posts in English.
