I’m so excited about this week’s episode. I was recently able to screen the upcoming film Tyson’s Run. It’s an inspirational family film about an autistic boy named Tyson, who decided he wants to run a marathon in order to repair his family. It’s such a good, family film and it releases in theaters nationwide on March 11th.
My guests today are Major Dodson, who plays Tyson, and Kim Bass. who wrote and directed the film. They stopped by the pod to talk about the inspiration behind Tyson’s Run, what it was like filming it, and what lessons they learned along the way. This was such a fun experience for me and I can’t wait for you to listen.
Tyson’s Run is rated PG and will release in theaters nationwide on March 11th.

Communing with nature is one of the best methods of self-care available, and hiking is one of the best ways to enjoy nature.
If you’re a parent who enjoys hitting the trails with your little ones, you’re already aware that toddlers will walk some of the journey and want carried the rest of the way. There are tons of contraptions for carrying babies while on the trails, but what about those in between, toddler years? You don’t want to bring a big bulky carrier for a kid who’s only going to use it some of the time.
The Trail Magik Kid Carrier solves that problem and does so brilliantly.
Invented by a Dad who wanted to take his 3-year-old backpacking. It’s for kiddos 12 months up to 43 pounds. The carrier attaches onto hiking backpacks and durable daypacks that have a waist strap & upper loaders. Weighing less than 10oz, it’s so portable, you can stuff it into the side of your backpack when not in use. It’s a game-changer for the “outdoor adventure family” community.
