The Adventure Podcast Episode 54: National Geographic Adventurers of the Year

I’m on the road at the moment in San Diego, CA but will be heading home tomorrow to resume regular posting. But, while I’ve been away a new episode of The Adventure Podcast has dropped, so I wanted to share it with listeners who also happen to read the blog.

On this week’s episode we take a look at the 2019 winners of the National Geographic Adventurer of the Year awards, with some familiar names and new faces getting the nod this year. But before we jump into that topic, we first share an update from K2 and Nanga Parbat, where the search for the missing climbers has come to a tragic end. We also discuss an unusual summit on Baruntse in Nepal and the current state of the ice pack in the Bering Strait. As always, we wrap up the show with a little gear talk, with my co-host Dave Adlard talking about his favorite adventure racing backpack, while I offer up a new, more efficient, way to cook thanks to an innovative pot from GSI Outdoors.
