Nikolas Wallenda is an American acrobat, aerialist, daredevil, high wire artist, and author.
Nik Wallenda is on the line, and Adam talks with him about the experience of tight rope walking over a volcano. Nik also talks about stepping out of your comfort zone to pursue your dreams, as well as never settling for status quo. Adam then asks Nik about his family’s experience performing in the circus, using fear to motivate you, and the importance of maintaining balance in your life. In the last part of the show, Gina reads news stories about Bill Cosby’s latest appeal, Fauci’s thoughts on the coronavirus vaccine, and death threats against Fauci and other scientists.

Nik Wallenda is a daredevil. He’s broken 11 Guinness World Records and should be dead from all of them. But he’s not. His skill is unexplainable. It’s part acrobat. Part circus. Part mastermind… You might’ve seen him on a highwire. BLINDFOLDED. While crossing the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, between buildings in Time Square or Chicago and more. I wanted to know how Nik defeated fear... was it his childhood training? Was it his focus or ability to control his heart rate? And how does he get himself to keep doing the thing that could plunge him to death while the rest of us are scared to quit our 9-5s? Nik’s talent is unbelievable. But the method behind it is accessible. And something we can all look at as a form of possibility.   I write about all my podcasts!
