Outside Podcast plunges into a night of bitterly cold catastrophes.

You'll face a car accident on a lonely stretch of road, a broken ski binding that foils a backcountry escape, and a slow descent into hypothermia and delirium - all during the 1st installment in Outside Podcast 's "Science of Survival" series. Good luck.

The Outside Podcast is a collaboration between PRX & Outside Magazine , produced by Peter Frick-Wright and Robbie Carver.


Outside Podcast is a collaboration between Outside Magazine and PRX that applies the magazine’s long-standing literary storytelling methods to the audio realm. The podcast’s first series delves into the science of survival in some of nature’s most extreme environments.
