Northwest Sessions is a bi-monthly podcast hosted by Northwest homeboy, Jason Davis. The Pacific Northwest is in his DNA. Jason mines for unique voices and personalities who are the fabric of this broadly-woven corner of the lower 48. Unabashedly honest, Jason peeks through a colorful Northwest lens to reveal community, culture, art, addiction/recovery, and most importantly, the great outdoors.

Karl Ozolin takes his fun seriously.  His repertoire for watersports is expansive.  Windsurf, surf, standup paddle, and now foiling, are all part of this waterman's experience and spirit. Karl and I travel through the evolution of his watersports background and reminisce about how the Northwest waters have nourished our souls. Find all of my sessions on your favorite podcast player or
Jason and Ed talk about Ed's life and the perilous road he has traveled.  From his childhood to becoming a man, Ed has persevered in surviving addiction, thriving in sobriety, and now the masochistic nuttiness of Ultra Marathon running.
When I was dreaming up this podcast, doing a session with my cousin Evan Knapp, consistently went to the top-of my mind.  Evan has a gentle soul, is wildly creative, and just plain goofy.  Reality though, keeps  him fighting for his own peace.  It's easy to laugh with Evan while "going there" with our conversation as we talk about recovery, mental health, and overcoming adversity.

My first podcast recording! No one better to try it out on than my dear brother, Toby. We talked about launching this podcast, how and why we follow-them, what the NW to him. We also reminisced about family trips taken riding in the back of our truck and memorializing our Mom. The recording is a bit choppy and I am a rookie at editing, but what a great feeling to finally get one out!
