It’s always a little disquieting to stumble upon something that you should have been a part of all along. It’s like wandering into a room and you find all of your friends having a party. It’s not that you were intentionally not-invited, it’s that you somehow missed all of the signs taped to every wall in your house.
Sure, it sucks that you weren’t at the party from the beginning, but now that you’re here, you might as well join in.
That’s how I felt when I fell into “The Dirtbag Diaries,” produced by Fitz Cahall. The worst part is that the signs for the party were basically taped to my forehead, and I still missed them! I’ve been following Fitz Cahall through his amazing collaboration with Bryan Smith on “The Season,” a web TV series following climbers, mountain bikers, snowboarders, etc through a season of trying to live the adventures they set out to complete.
Using the word ‘enamored’ to describe my feelings for both “The Season” and “The Dirtbag Diaries” would be drastic understatements. I’ve downloaded every podcast of “The Dirtbag Diaries” available and pretty much have it on an IV drip. You may think that it would be impossible to edit video footage of interviews while listening to Fitz telling amazing stories of adventurers, but somehow I manage.
Search itunes for “The Dirtbag Diaries” or check them out HERE.
Also, check out the beautifully narrated and filmed “The Love Letter.” You’ll be so glad you did.
