A conversation with Roman Dial

Photo by Mike Curiak

On the next Outdoor Explorer, we spend a full hour sitting with Roman Dial, one of Alaska’s greatest adventurers, to learn about his extraordinary life and the tragic disappearance of his son. We’ll his thoughts on how that ordeal was horribly exploited by reality TV. We’ll also get into many other tales, including how he helped start wilderness racing and developed the pack raft as a tool for Alaska travel. 

Thanks for listening!
