Keep Exploring is your new reason to break your routine, to skip class, to see the world, to take a hike, to sleep outside, to take the long way, to stay up late... and so, so much more. What started as a Facebook message sent between two friends before a road trip out west is now one of our favorite brands hellbent on encouraging adventure large and small around the globe. Keep Exploring's creators Brett and Alex are here on the podcast today to talk about their company's beginnings, the meaning behind their iconic big, red flag, and their insight on what it means to be adventurous. Get ready guys, because these two are about to dose up some serious inspo for anyone needing a little mix up in their daily life or hungry for an adventure. Join us!
