Always Run the First Big Thing with Gary Edgeworth

In episode 8 Kevin Cripps sits down with Gary Edgeworth who has been a prominent figure in the Western U.S. kayaking scene since the 90s, or as his friend Rolf Gliby puts it, “Gary is a caricature of a human being.” After sitting down with him for over 2 hours, Kevin barely scratched the surface of the amazing adventures and stories Gary Edgeworth’s generated in his life.

 

This episode has a serious “inside baseball” vibe. Kevin included links to some of the rivers and people Gary talks about in this episode for those interested in diving in deeper.
