For this Weekly Fourcast, we caught up with Jaybird ambassador Jorge Maravilla. Jorge emigrated to California’s San Joaquin Valley from El Salvador with his mother, and as a child he began running through the farmlands where she worked. In 2011, Jorge won the first ultra-marathon he ever entered, the Tahoe Rim Trail 100, and has been running professionally ever since. When he isn’t racing or training in the Marin Headlands near his home, he is the General Manager at the San Francisco Running Company. Follow Jorge @1jorgemaravilla.
Jorge’s Recommended Podcasts:
Finding Mastery Conversations with Michael Gervais, Bob Hurley, Hurley International Founder
Michael Gervais goes into an in-depth chat with Bob Hurley on building the global brand of HURLEY and my interest from the interview was the relatable business philosophy of following your passion and allow things to grow organically.
Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, Michelle Obama
As expected in true Conan fashion, this is a comical chat with an influential and admirable woman I respect greatly, as well as a close look into prioritizing and valuing investment in our youth through her actions along with her openness of what it was like to be the first lady. Also, it was the first Conan podcast I ever heard and it was a great choice!
How I Built This, Lonely Planet: Maureen & Tony Wheeler
An incredible insight to how a now widely resourceful such book(s) came to life. A compelling episode of passionate, detailed, adventurists who I felt relatable to.
Latino USA, Dolores Huerta and her Daughter Talk Gender and Power
I volunteered for the UFW for 1.5 years and worked closely with Dolores and led the charge in Watsonville in the Strawberry Campaign that educated farmworkers on the rights they have despite their lack of knowing. Great listen from one of our most influential woman of our time. I am fortunate to know her personally and enjoyed this listen, which relates to my own personal life of growing up as a farmworker.
