    Ep. 802: First Woman to Kayak Amazon From Source to Sea - Revisited - Darcy Gaechter

    Ep. 802: First Woman to Kayak Amazon From Source to Sea - Revisited - Darcy Gaechter

    Originally aired June 4, 2018
    In 2013, Darcy Gaechter became the first woman (and vegan) to kayak the Amazon River from source to sea. With blistering lips and irradiated fingernails, her team of three paddlers tackled Class V whitewater for twenty-five days in a row; just barely survived a dynamite laden canyon being prepared for a hydroelectric dam, and pled for mercy at the hands of the murderous Ashaninka people who remained somewhat convinced we had come to steal their children's organs. 
    In a desperate act meant to give me some pretense of control, Darcy cut off all of her hair just before they entered Peru’s notoriously violent “Red Zone.” The hope was to pass for a boy and be seen as less of a target. Despite all odds, they reached the Atlantic Ocean 4,300 miles and 148 days of kayaking later. 
    Upon reaching the Atlantic, the three, an esoteric computer programmer from London, a vegan girl from Aspen, CO and her begrudging boyfriend who would become the first man to kayak the Amazon, “because his girlfriend made him”—became the first three people to kayak the entire Amazon. Darcy became the first woman to do it. 
    Now, the same number of people have walked on the moon as have descended the Amazon from source to sea.

    Ep. 800: Encircling Africa by Public Transport - Revisited - Ian Packham

    Originally aired June 9, 2016
    Ian Packham is a trained medical researcher turned adventurer and decided to circumnavigate the African continent by means of public transportation, which would become the first time anyone had done this solo and unsupported.
    During his 13 month – 25,000 mile trip, Ian was mistaken for an undercover UN official during Liberia’s presidential election and was denied access to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and so much more!
    The adventure earned Ian a 2013 runner-up for the National Geographic Traveler writing competition and his new book “Encircle Africa: Around Africa by Public Transport” chronicles this epic tale!

    Ep. 799: Climbing Grand Teton - Revisited - Craig Dinkel

    Ep. 799: Climbing Grand Teton - Revisited - Craig Dinkel

    Originally aired June 30, 2016.
    Craig Dinkel's adventurous life began with a near-drowning at the very young age of just 2. But instead of this experience leaving him with a fear of water, Craig ultimately became an excellent swimmer competing for Cal State and qualifying for the Olympic trials. He’s an entrepreneur having grown a company from ground level into a half-billion dollar market only to be wiped out by the dot-com crash. Craig eventually found himself at the summit of 13,775 ft Grand Teton in Wyoming and ultimately caught the bug to attempt a thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail and hopefully bag the triple crown thru-hiking the Continental Divide Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and the Appalachian Trail. Craig is also the founder and owner of the supplements company BioTropic Labs.

    Ep. 797: From Desk Job to Career in Fishing - Angie Scott

    When Angie was let go from her music industry career after 16 years, she decided to jump headfirst into her passion for the outdoors and fishing. She had already started the Woman Angler & Adventurer Podcast and had always dreamed of becoming a professional tournament fisher. This gave her the perfect reason to give it a try. 
    I got to interview Angie from a boat out on the ocean. It was one of the coolest interview spots I’ve ever had and I can’t thank Angie enough for making it happen!
