Mike Basich on Going Off Grid

Pro-snowboarder, Mike Basich, tours his self-built 225 square foot home in the middle of his 40 acre snow covered property near Truckee, CA – and shows how being close to nature drives his most creative decisions.

Going Off Grid is a show by Seeker Stories  that examines how 180,000 Americans a year are choosing to entirely disconnect themselves from our modern, internet-focused world in pursuit of a more sustainable, simple lifestyle.
In this episode, journalist Laura Ling interviews innovator and pro snowboarder Mike Basich, who talks about why he chose a connection to the Earth over the fame and fortune provided by snowboarding.
