Season 2, Ep 36 - Laurie Crayston On The Challenge Of Going Solo
My guest today is Laurie Crayston. Laurie is the founder of Ascendany Apparel - the clothing brand for adventurers; born in 2015 out of a love for the landscapes of the English Lake District. Earlier this year he attempted the ultimate Cumbrian challenge; a continuous, single round of the Wainwrights. That’s roughly 320 miles, 214 summits and over 35,000 metres of ascent. Only four people had ever completed it in a continuous single round; and Laurie was attempting to do it completely on his own without any external support. This is a really fascinating insight into what it takes to tackle something like this on your own and the impact it has on your mind and body.
Season 2, Ep 35 - Freddie Bennett On Being Over The Influence
My guest today is Freddie Bennett. When Freddie was 35, it looked like he had it all. The high-powered corporate job, the Porsche and the exotic holidays with his young family. But the truth was, he was addicted, suicidal, unfit, unhealthy, and he hated the person he saw in the mirror every day. But after years of failed attempts to get sober, Freddie finally said ‘enough is enough’ in March 2019 and he is now over 2 years alcohol-free. Since ditching the booze he’s run across the Sahara Desert, won ultramarathons, become a Guinness World Record holder, an Ironman, published his first book, ‘Starting at Zero’ and launched the very awesome ‘’Over the influence podcast’’. Buckle up, this one is sure to get you thinking!
Season 2, Ep 34 - Natalia Cohen on Losing Sight of The Shore
My guest today is Natalia Cohen. In 2016, with absolutely no rowing experience, Natalia was part of the first all-female team to row unsupported across the Pacific Ocean - the epic journey spotlighted in the very special documentary Losing Sight of Shore which is now on Amazon Prime! That's 9,000 miles from San Francisco to Cairns in a 29ft ocean rowing boat for over 250 days! The expedition was not only a challenge of extreme conditions and perseverance but also a journey of mental resilience and exploration of human endeavour. Natalia’s vision is to empower others to reach their potential, push through their self-limiting mental boundaries and meet and overcome the challenges that life throws at them. This is a must-listen episode for so many reasons!
Season 2, Ep 33 - Krish Patel on Inspiring Others Through The Power Of Your Story
My guest today is the very awesome Krish Patel. Krish is the host of the Tales to Inspire podcast - focused on inspiring others through the power of their stories. We discuss his lifelong dream to be a professional footballer, achieving his dream and then it all crashing down around him. He tells how his materialistic focus on girls and money had to change as he embarked on a journey of purpose to help himself and, ultimately, others take control of their lives.
Season 2, Ep 32 - The Sidecar Guys On Not Settling For Normal
My guests today are Matt and Reece - otherwise know as The Sidecar Guys. Matt & Reece are a couple of normal guys who cooked up an idea to circumnavigate the globe on a scooter with a sidecar back in 2015. At the time, they had absolutely no idea how to ride a motorbike, let alone how to drive a scooter with a sidecar around the world. With a mission to raise awareness of modern slavery, they set out on their journey. 455 days, 5 continents, 35 countries and 34k miles later they raced into the record books with a Guinness World Record! We chat about their epic adventure, the motivation to help make a difference in the world and their awesome upcoming adventure festival - The Armchair Adventure Festival. These are two ordinary guys who did an extraordinary thing!
