In this fifty-seventh episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast, Anthony and Eric talk with Dr. Alejandro Strong, about “Philosophy Outdoors,” especially about the company he started, Apeiron Expeditions.
Alex’s philosophical work specializes especially in environmental philosophy. He founded an “L3C” company, Apeiron Expeditions. According to the company Web site, “Our guides are here to lead you in the footsteps of Henry David Thoreau, Helen Hamlin, Louise Dickinson Rich, Frederic Edwin Church, Neil Welliver, and others who have shared the story of their encounters with this beautiful land. It is your turn to venture forth with us and be inspired. Apeiron Expeditions provides the equipment and expertise for you to enjoy a wilderness expedition, even if this is your first camping trip.” Apeiron is also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with some lovely photos and stories about their ventures.
