Brendan Leonard

Brendan has a new book out, called, Sixty Meters to Anywhere. So it was a good time to bring Brendan onto the podcast to talk about the book, and a bunch of other things, such as:

• Some of Brendan’s upcoming projects, including a book about art, a book about pizza, and a book about football (that I might have to force him to write).

• Why Brendan is being drawn toward films & filmmaking

• Addiction

• Distraction (and social media and phones and dopamine)

• On being “busy,” and why Brendan tries to avoid using the term

• Kanye West (!!!)

• Coffee — and why I think Brendan is wrong to be trying to cut back on his consumption

Brendan is a great storyteller, so if you love the outdoors and have ever been tempted to pick up a pen or a camera to document your experience, you ought to listen to this podcast.
