The Beaver State Podcast Episode 13: Chad Brown’s Soul River

June 16, 2020

Chad Brown is the founder and president of Soul River, a 501(c)(3) which brings together underserved youth with veterans to participate in conservation and education. Chad is an African-American man whose experiences in the outdoors are important to hear and to understand, because who he is, his upbringing and each trip to the river are inseparable from who he is as a person. The great outdoors is a place for everyone to experience. But not everyone has the same experience. This podcast episode is the first in many that will explore being outdoors from the perspective of people from many walks of life. Graphic warning: This episode talks about rape, racism and suicide.
