It’s Wednesday already, which means its time for another episode of The Adventure Podcast. This week, we profile a group of modern day adventurers that listeners should know about. These are men and women who are doing amazing things in terms of exploration and the outdoors, but generally aren’t getting a lot of attention from the mainstream press. We thought they should be on your radar however, which is why we’ve turned a spotlight on them. And as we mention in the show, there are plenty of others we could do this with too, so this could become a regular feature moving forward.
Of course, we start the show off with adventure news with updates from the Himalaya, not one, but two, dramatic rescues at sea, and the amazing story of the first traverse of Tasmania during the winter months. As usual, we wrap up the show by talking about gear, with cohost Dave Adlard and myself sharing an item that we’ve both been using. In this case, that involves a slick belt that you can use everyday and a sophisticated power pack for keeping your devices charged in the backcountry.
You’ll find the the show embedded in this blog post below if you prefer to listen from your browser. You’ll also find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, and Spotify for those who want to listen on their mobile device. If you like what you hear, why not give us a rating on your platform of choice. You can also reach out to us via our Facebook page, Twitter account, and by email. We love hearing from listeners, getting your feedback, and fielding questions too.
As always, thanks for listening!
