Facing Climate Change and Finding Optimism in the Amazon with Pedro Andrade Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra

    • Mental Health

It's not every day you get the opportunity to talk to someone who has been held hostage by an indigenous Amazonian tribe and lived to tell the tale, but lucky for us and for him, today is that day! My guest on this week's episode of Looking Up is Pedro Andrade. TV host, activist, journalist, and storyteller, he brings so much to today's conversation. We talk through his new show Unknown Amazon, what growing up in Brazil was like, knowing from a young age what he wanted out of life, and all the steps and work he put in to get there. He views optimism as a muscle that must be strengthened and shares stories with us that perfectly encapsulate the most important aspect of resiliency- our human connections. 
 
His love of travel and the way he finds a human side to every story makes his insights on wellness, how we view setbacks, and the ever-evolving climate crisis something we can all relate to. Pedro doesn't believe in shortcuts or that getting what we want can be found through magic moments, but instead speaks profoundly about the work we must do to see what we feel passionate about become reality. He's honest with us about finding empathy through the most extreme circumstances, dealing with PTSD, and how this show changed his life. There is so much to learn from his wise words, please enjoy this episode of LOOKING UP.
