Adventure Science Podcast
- In 2018, Canadian mountain man Benjamin Jordan completed an epic first, in completing his trans-rockies route by paraglider from Montana to Prince George, BC. Raised in Toronto, Benjamin turned a passion for photography into his career, building a name for himself as a fashion photographer at a young age, but his love of the outdoors and adventure ultimately took him to the mountains of BC, where he has since become an adventure travel photographer and filmmaker, often combining these with his passion for paragliding. In 2006, he and three friends skateboarded across Canada to raise money for breast cancer research. Since then, combining adventure with philanthropy has been an important part of his life.
