Jun 23, 2020 | Episodes


On this episode of the Graceful Grizzly Podcast Mauricio and Tyler discuss some unconventional science, dog walking to help treat depression and a classic Florida-man story about fist fighting a gator. This get’s wild. Of course we have a full cast of Instagram questions and a stellar deep dive where we get to hear from Jelani Splawn (@jelly_the_photographer on Instagram) – a photographer from Harrisburg about the importance of perspective. Don’t miss this incredibly deep, yet somehow super light and hilarious conversation!
