Episode description

NYC filmmaker/producer/writer turned PDX-based outdoor badass (plus those other things still too of course!) Faith Briggs talks about growing up on the east coast and her early exposure to nature and outdoors, her parents influence and the intersection of arts, athletics, and religion/spirituality they provided at home, what it meant to her to be a track runner then and a trail runner now, her move West for the Columbia Sportswear Director of Toughness position and why she stayed, what it's like to be a person of color in a not-so-diverse place like Portland, the work she's most proud of, and much more.
