Brent Olson

Co-Host of The Mountain Stories Podcast

Brent grew up in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains but didn't really discover a love for the mountains until he spent a year and a half volunteering at a retreat center deep in the North Cascades. Since then he's spent time exploring the Rockies, the Adirondacks, the Central Cascades, the Southern Ghats, the Pyrenees, the Scottish Highlands, and his home mountains, the Wasatch. His research interests include political ecology, resource geography, environmental history, and cultural landscapes. When he's not teaching, reading, or writing, he's likely to be taking photos or exploring the world on a bike or a snowboard.
