Episode Info

Episode Info: Yossi Ghinsberg is an Israeli-Australian adventurer, musician, tech entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker. In 1981, Yossi ventured into the remote and unchartered Bolivian Amazon jungle with three other backpackers, in search of adventure. After a series of events and accidents, Yossi was separated from the others and spent 3 weeks alone and lost, deep in Amazon. Yossi was faced with tremendous hardships including almost drowning in white-water rapids and going over waterfalls, starvation, hallucinations, multiple full-body wounds, trench foot, coming face-to-face with a Jaguar at night, being enveloped by tens of thousands of fire ants, flooding, being trapped torso-deep in a swamp, sleep deprivation.. all of which happened during the heaviest torrential rain season in a decade. Yossi's famous story has now been made into a feature film called Jungle, which will be released in 2017 - starring Daniel Radcliffe, from Harry Potter fame. Yossi goes into detail around his extraordinary experience and chance rescue, and has since gained enlightened wisdom. Yossi's book Jungle: A Harrowing True Story of Survival in the Amazon is available as an audio-book from Audible, or hard-copy from Amazon.
