The creators of The Dirtbag Diaries -- a podcast about outdoor adventures -- recently debuted a new 22-episode Web TV series called The Season that looks like it's worth checking out. The show follows five Pacific Northwest athletes through one season of their sport. There's a climber, a snowboarder, a mountain biker, a boulderer and a sea kayaker. Here's what the creators had to say about the series:
This is our baby. For months we schlepped ropes, camera gear and tripods through underbrush and up the side of cliffs to present our vision of these sports. Some of these athletes are professionals, some aren't. They are all unique people who have something to say. We've enjoyed helping them tell their story. We hope you enjoy their stories.
