The Adventure Podcast Episode 50: Adventure Badass Roald Amundsen

This week’s episode of The Adventures Podcast takes a look at the life and accomplishments of Norwegian polar explorer, Roald Amundsen. He is probably best known for being the first person to reach the South Pole, and while that is a worth accomplishment, he did far more than that throughout his illustrious career. So much so, that he has earned the coveted title of “adventure badass” beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Before delving into that topic however, my co-host Dave Adlard and I discuss the latest adventure news, including updates from K2 and Nanga Parbat, as well as the latest on an ongoing controversy in Nepal that could cause insurance travel companies to shut down their coverage there. Later, in our weekly gear segment, we follow-up on our recent visit to Denver for the Outdoor Retailer convention with our picks of our favorite new products that stood out in the crowd.
