SNEWS® Live:  At SNEWS® Live, we're in the business of telling stories about the people, places and products of the outdoor and fitness industries. Together, these three elements make up our culture as a community. And as a news organization, we take great pride in sharing with you, our listeners, different expressions of that culture whenever we find it.



Not too long ago, we discovered a wonderful podcast that depicts the heart and soul of our community through the art of storytelling. For more than a year, The Dirtbag Diaries has shared tales of adventure, intrigue and excitement that recount the lives of unique individuals out there on the edge. Creator and host Fitz Cahall uses a documentary style of reporting to illustrate subtle and various ways people in the active lifestyle community express their passions.

At Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2008, SNEWS® Live met with Cahall to thumb through the pages of his own Dirtbag Diary.
