BHA Podcast & Blast: Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia

Hal Herring talks with Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia and legendary outdoorsman, at the 2018 BHA North American Rendezvous in Boise, Idaho.

They discuss Chouinard’s roots, hunting jackrabbits with goshawks, replacing stuff with knowledge, a business born of necessity, Chouinard’s climbing crew, rugby shirts and corduroy pants, the Patagonia method of management, a cure for depression, national monuments, an agricultural revolution and the joys of simplicity.

  1. Worth a listen for the INTERVIEWER’S fantastic accent and voice, let alone the interesting content.

    Chouinard and I wordlessly nodded and smiled at each other once, in mutual recognition, as clearly completely unsaveable fellow addicts, he arriving at tiny Rio Grande airport on Tierra del Fuego one morning, me leaving on an even tinier Kaiken Airlines twin-prop plane northbound across the gale-blown Straits of Magellan to Rio Gallegos, to continue my season of sea-trouting there. Happy days.

    Back to the interview.
