Introducing Outside's New Smart-Speaker Show

Say: “Alexa, open Outside Unpacked”

We’re in print, we’re online, and now we’re on your smart speakers.

Our team is excited to announce our partnership with SpokenLayer. Together we’re launching Outside Unpacked, a daily outdoor-news briefing coming to your smart speakers every weekday morning. The show, which is an extension of our What You Missed newsletter, will give you the latest update on all things outdoors.

Here’s how it works:

Alexa Skill Users

Ask your Alexa: “Alexa…”

  • “What’s the latest from Outside Unpacked?”
  • “Open Outside Unpacked.”
  • “Launch Outside Unpacked.”

Alexa Flash Briefing

Search for Outside Unpacked in your Alexa app, select Enable, and then say, “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?”

Google Home Users

Tell your Google Home: “OK Google…”

  • “Talk to Outside Unpacked.”
  • “Play Outside Unpacked.”
  • “Open Outside Unpacked.”

Listeners who don’t have a smart speaker can still tune in. Find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Spotify.

We’re creating this for you, so we want to hear your feedback. Write in to, or tweet us to let us know what you think. Until then, happy listening.
