My guest this week is Mark Beaumont.  Mark is an endurance athlete and holds the record for cycling around the world.  In 2017 he did what many thought impossible; circumnavigating the globe on his bike in a truly remarkable 78 days, 14 hour and 40 minutes! In 2018 Mark cycled the Americas - from Anchorage Alaska to the tip of Argentina! His accomplishments aren’t limited to cycling, with challenges also seeing him attempt to row to the magnetic North Pole and across the Atlantic.   This is a fascinating insight into the mind of an ultra-endurance athlete and a must-listen.   
My guest this week is Danny Bent - author, adventurer, story-teller and record-breaker.  He was voted one of the 100 happiest people in Britain and 50 most inspiring people in London and when you listen to this episode you will quickly see why.  Danny is buzzing with energy and has a built-in desire to help others - a powerful combination.  I absolutely loved this conversation and I hope you are as inspired by it as I was!
This week I'm joined by Jen Gale - author of The Sustainabl(ish) Living Guide.  Jen is a visionary - someone who believes that every one of us can make small decisions that change the world.  Jen and her family spent a whole year buying nothing new - challenging their own beliefs on the things they ‘needed’ and where they might be able to source them in a more sustainable way.  Through her relaxed, zero judgement style she helps people take baby steps, and reminds us all not to worry about being 'perfectly sustainable'.   This is a must-listen for anyone who wants to better understand their impact on the world.
This week I'm chatting with Sean Conway, the endurance athlete with an impressive roll call of incredible challenges and ''firsts'' under this belt! Sean, like so many people, was stuck in the daily grind and on full autopilot in his job as a school photographer.  He decided enough was enough, sold his business for £1 and set about building a new life of adventure.  This is a MUST listen for any feeling like life is groundhog day and dreaming of adventure.
This week my guest is Lucy Shepherd (@lucysheps); Lucy is mega inspiring and this episode is a must-listen.  As a young teen, Lucy felt like she didn't fit in before an unexpected residential course to Scotland suggested by her Dad unlocked a latent passion for adventure and fascination with expeditions.  Fast forward to today, Lucy is at the forefront of modern exploration.  From mountains,  to rainforests to the arctic - she has already achieved so much and she’s not done yet.  She is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and is also on the council for the Scientific Exploration Society.  Lucy drops some serious wisdom in this episode and I absolutely loved speaking with her.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This week I am joined by architect and photographer Quintin Lake.  Quintin recently completed a truly epic challenge; Walking 11,000km around the coast of mainland Britain in sections over 5 years, wild camping, self-supported and taking a breathtaking series of photographs en route.  Quintin is down to earth and seriously authentic.   In this episode, he shares great advice on breaking down big challenges into bite-size chunks and shares his thoughts on building adventure into your life one day at a time.
In this episode I am joined by James Geering,  the former firefighter and host of the Behind The Shield podcast.   4 years ago James became frustrated at the lack of support and advice available to first responders and he knew there were experts out there who could help.  Driven by the tragic and often preventable deaths of co-workers he lined up some guests and took a leap of faith, launching his podcast.   Nearly 400 episodes later he is still going strong and bringing powerful messages to anyone looking to level up their health and wellness.
In this episode, I am joined by Jim Mee - the visionary founder and CEO of @RatRaceHQ who is passionate about making adventure accessible and affordable for all.  Rat Race is doing remarkable things to give everyday people the opportunity to have life-changing adventures and I, for one, am a huge fan.  Jim shares his thoughts on why getting to the start line is a major achievement which is not celebrated enough and how Rat Race is all about experiencing the journey in a new and special place - not suffering for the sake of it.  
In this episode, I speak to Dominic O'Sullivan (@sully189) who, at 46 years old, received a phone call which turned out to be the first in a series of life-changing moments.  At the time Dominic, an ex-Royal Air Force PTI, was seriously overweight and not in a great place.  Fast forward to today and Dominic is a totally different guy; disciplined, athletic and living a life of balance and purpose. His choice to take a new path is so powerful and could be just what you need if you are delaying critical changes in your lifestyle.  
In this episode I speak to the uber authentic Allie Bailey (@ab_runs) - after a non-stop hedonistic career in the music industry, Allie realised she needed to make a change.  A combination of perspective changing discussions with her family set her on a path to becoming a runner.  Ultra runner and Chief Test Pilot Allie shares her honest perspective on mental health, how you should never be afraid to be afraid and how running 'long' silences her critical inner self.  This is a powerful episode and will remind you the time to make a change in your life is NOW!Warning: If you listen with your kids present be warned this one has some f-bombs in!
In this episode, I speak to my inspirational friend Mike Kavanagh (@back2thebreath) - equal parts father, husband, author, podcast host, leadership coach and breathwork instructor.  Mike is the author of ''What Is Your Calling? The Journey to Find Work You Love'' and is building his life around his passions.  This episode will make you stop and ask how well you really know yourself.  Are you stuck in the daily grind or moving towards what makes you happy?  
In this episode, I speak with the humble and brilliant @catiefriend.  Catie is a 47-year-old mum of two, presenter, sports commentator and adventurer.  In the depths of struggles with anxiety and depression, Catie decided that it was time to get her spark back.  She wanted to recapture her adventurous youth and her zest for life.  In doing so she has started her own podcast ''Chatting to a Friend'' and shares beautifully that it is always the right time to hit reset and follow your dreams.
