More fun than a powder day. Riskier than leaping from a mountain. Weirder than week on the playa. Paddy O’Connell and Elizabeth ‘Rage Kitty’ Nakano take you on a wild traverse of the ideas that define the outdoor community and the stories behind them. No topic is taboo.

Welcome to Safety Third — Ideas forged from adventure.

Meet the Hosts

Host: Paddy O'Connell

Paddy O'Connell

Paddy O’Connell is the host and co-writer of Safety Third. When he’s not practicing Footloose inspired dance moves, Patrick Swayze-esque hair flips and grooming his mustache to resemble Tom Selleck’s lip caterpillar, Paddy can be found in the mountains — mostly likely being a bit loud and doing something a lot weird. He is a freelance creator, storyteller and multimedia producer working out of Carbondale, Colorado.

Host: Elizabeth Nakano

Elizabeth Nakano

Known for dishing out sharp retorts and withering looks, Elizabeth is producer and co-writer of Safety Third. Even though she lives for the blistering heat, Safety Third’s creative director Fitz Cahall once observed that she seems to have ice water running through her veins. Elizabeth considers it one of the highest compliments she’s ever received.
