Mara Altman wants to destigmatize everything weird, gross, and just downright unlucky that happens to women’s bodies. And to destigmatize, you have to talk about it … or in this case write a book about it and go on a book tour. From unwanted facial hair, to the myriad shapes and sizes of breasts to overly sweaty armpits, Mara is hilarious, downright frank, and I have to say, really refreshing.  Her book is Gross Anatomy. 

 

Chad Brackelsberg, Executive Director of the Utah Avalanche Center, joins Tim and Lynn to highlight the 25th annual Black Diamond fundraiser on September 13, to talk about what the Center is working on for education of backcountry enthusiasts, and a new video that underscores the importance of knowing before you go.
