Recorded throughout the global pandemic and racial reckoning of 2020, Within & Without is a new podcast from the Radical Adventure Riders (RAR) and Race.Ancestors.Health.Outdoors.Knowledge (RAHOK) that features “…dispatches from BIPoC and Allies discussing tensions within the cycling community and how we connect to ourselves and the world around us through cycling and the outdoors.”

Episode 1, titled “Radical Roots and Responsibilities,” was launched earlier this week. It includes an introduction to co-hosts Río Oxas and Everett Ó Cillín, the stories behind RAR and RAHOK, as well as interviews with Grace Anderson, Devin Cowens, Alex Villalba, Olivia Williams, Kai Conradi, and Molly Sugar.

In describing the podcast and its ambitions, its creators said, “These conversations help move us toward transformation: a transformation that centers the freedom and justice of our earth, amplifies voices from across the gender spectrum, and centers Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We acknowledge the energy of discomfort these conversations may bring and hope this very energy will help shift the greater dialogue to support the changes needed in outdoor and cycling communities – and our world.”

New episodes will be released every Thursday, and upcoming topics will include the Black cycling experience, creating gender-inclusive spaces, colonial concepts of the outdoors, stories from the RAR gravel camp, the impacts of naming and language, and more. You can find Within & Without via Spotify, iTunes, Google Podcasts, and wherever you get your podcasts. Find a list of episodes and air dates below.
