As a homegrown Coloradan with a passion for keeping the spirit of our state alive and well, I started this podcast to bring the people of Colorado together to celebrate the amazing state we call home!
Come along on this journey with me as I travel across our state in my vintage RV, interviewing folks who embody the true spirit of the Rocky Mountains. From the front range to the mile-high city, to the mountain towns and the Wild West of southern Colorado, we’ll celebrate the history, beauty, and Coloradans that make this place the colorful state it is!
Each week, you’ll meet the people trailblazing the way for an even more colorful future for us all, and who are making a huge difference along the way.
