    #17 | Shane Ohly: Climber, Runner & Race Director

    Welcome to episode 17 of Paths in the Outdoors podcast, this episode we talk to Shane Ohly, who has a passion for all things adventure, with his take on the definition of the term.

    He started when he was a teenager as a climber, establishing himself as ‘loose cannon’ of the sport, climbing bold solos and admits that there was an element of recklessness. He then transitioned into a mountain runner, focusing on orienteering based races, as well as big mountain routes. Shane talks about his dedication to the whatever adventure he sets his mind to.

    Nowadays, he is race director at Ourea Events, still getting out to climb and run, but the logistics of planning world renowned running events, like the Dragons Back or Skyline Scotland, keeps him busy. We discuss the safety aspects he has developed and the environmental management that goes into these events, amongst other things.

    It can all be watched on YouTube and Spotify and listened to on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

    #16 | Isaac Kenyon: Eco-Adventurer

    Welcome to episode 16 of Paths in the Outdoors podcast, this episode we talk to Isaac Kenyon.

    Isaac is a world record holding adventurer who is sculpting his adventurers around the need to promote a positive environmental culture and this is reflected in the Pedal 4 Parks film he is involved in that was shown at COP26.

    We talk about how he found the outdoors through swimming initially as he learned about the positive impact to growing mental health concerns whilst at university. Also, about the adventures his outdoor passion has taken on and how this overlaps into his day job. He tells us about Climate Explorers and how the team involved plan to use this for outdoor education across the globe.

    As we were in the Alexandra Hotel in Fort William during the Mountain Festival this year, there is a bit of background noise from other people moving around the hotel. Hopefully it doesn’t distract from the great chat I had with Isaac.

    It can all be watched on YouTube and Spotify and listened to on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

    #15 #moments | Hazen Audel : ‘Primal Survivor: Escape the Amazon’ Wilderness Explorer

    #15 #moments | Hazen Audel : ‘Primal Survivor: Escape the Amazon’ Wilderness Explorer

    Welcome to episode 15 of Paths in the Outdoors podcast. This is ‘moment’ on the path, a short edition where I talk to Hazen Audel about the upcoming release of his National Geographic series ‘Primal Survivor: Escape the Amazon’.

    In the new series, explorer Hazen takes on his toughest challenge yet, fighting his way through 500 miles of tropical Amazon jungle using only traditional survival methods at the most perilous time of year, the rainy season. Hazen’s journey is continually hampered by rain, flooding areas and blocking his paths.

    However rainy season has its rewards. Wildlife is on the move meaning Hazen gets to witness some astonishing sights, from dense primeval forest and savannahs filled with snakes, to tall granite mountains and swamps filled with caiman. Can Hazen complete his long journey and escape the Amazon before the rains makes it impossible?

    Filmed using National Geographic’s trademark high-end documentary style, each episode sees Hazen tackle a different leg of his perilous journey as he bravely takes on the mission to escape to the edge of the forest before being trapped by the floods of the rainy season.

    Tune in to catch the adventure: ‘Primal Survivor: Escape the Amazon’ from Thursday 14 April at 9pm on the National Geographic channel.

    It can all be watched on YouTube and Spotify and listened to on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
