Adventure Edge Radio, a podcast focused on interviewing adventurers across a wide range of activities, has an impressive back catalog of episodes that includes interviews with mountaineer Pete Athens, speed-climber Hans Florentine, and many more. This week’s episode adds another impressive name to that list in polar explorer Will Steger.
Will has years of experience in exploring the arctic regions of the planet. He’s spent more than 40 years leading teams in the polar regions, including the first expedition to the North Pole without resupply by dog sled and the first successful traverse of Antarctica by dog sled as well. He is also the first National Geographic Explorer in Residence and an tireless educator on the effects of global climate change.
In this interview, hosted by Jimmy Buff, we get plenty of background on Will, and you’ll hear him talk about his experiences first hand, touching on the Ellesmere Island expedition from earlier this year, his work with schools and young people, and his first hand experience with how our warming planet is effecting the ice caps.
