It’s Wednesday, which means it is time to share an all-new episode of The Adventure Podcast. This week we’re doing another round of explorers and adventurers that you should know, with my co-host Dave Adlard and I both sharing five men and women who are doing amazing things in terms fo mountaineering, exploration, endurance sports, and other outdoor activities. Our list includes the likes of rock climber Adam Ondra and solo-sailor Jessica Watson, amongst others.
Before jumping into that topic, we first take a look at the latest headlines in our adventure news segment, with updates on the current climbing scene in the Himalaya, the potential for Everest permits to go up in price, and the story of a cancer-survivor who swam across the English Channel four times in a row without stopping. As usual, we wrap up the show with some gear reviews as Dave share’s his thoughts on the MSR Carbon Reflex tent, while I wax poetically about the ENO Lounger DL camp chair.
The show is available to download and listen to on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, and Spotify,where you can also subscribe to us so you never miss a show.
