7 days ago
This is episode 9 with Lili and Mike Libecki.
“ in a world where we can be and do anything, be kind and do good”.
This is the pithy, poignant, timely, purpose-driven motto of our amazing young guest Lili Libecki. at just 14 years old she has climbed a peak on every continent, and with every expedition, she has given back to the people and places she visits. her mission is embodied in her own nonprofit, the Joyineering fund. If it sounds like Joy and adventure are in her DNA look no farther than her father to understand why.
Mike Libecki has a passion to seek and explore the remote, the untouched and unexplored corners of the earth. his specialty craft of planning and executing first ascents all over the globe has led to exploring diverse ecosystems: from the polar arctic to the south pacific. he’s seen nearly 100 countries, climbed on every continent, and has been honored as a national geographic explorer of the year
In the hour ahead we talk about their path: starting from a love of saying yes to adventure together to their natural instincts to give back in gratitude to the places they go. in our conversation we visit Antarctica, Nepal, Peru, Tanzania. We visit schools orphanages and we hear about their work: the gifts of solar power, of light, of computers, of education. how it all has left a lasting impact on the places they’ve been and on their own calling in life.
This is a podcast for those with an insatiable spirit for exploration for fathers, and their daughters, . . . and really for anyone who wants be witness an impassioned call to action. Get ready, you are going to be inspired to do some good in the world with your passion for adventure.
