Episode 34: Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop
Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop began his career as a teacher and spent five years teaching 11-18 year-olds at Eastbury Comprehensive, before developing multimedia approaches to learning at London’s largest comprehensive, Crown Woods School. He finished teaching to become an entrepreneur - he set up Digital Explorer, an award-winning social enterprise that engages young people with global issues by using the latest communications technology on educational expeditions to allow them to access expedition data on a real time basis. He has done all kinds of exciting things - like organising chats with schools from the Great Barrier Reef, promoting knowledge about Pakistan, and conducting scientific research in the Arctic. For the love of nature Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop “We build our future not through the fear of what we are going

Episode 33: Pete Goss
A former Royal Marine, Pete has been in and out of the headlines since the late 80s, when he sailed a tiny 26-foot catamaran across the Atlantic to take second in class against many bigger boats. But it was in 1996 that he really hit the news big time when he was competing in the Vendee Globe single-handed around-the-world yacht race and famously turned around to go and rescue a fellow competitor - and a Frenchman at that - who had had to abandon ship in the Southern Ocean - a place you really don’t want to be bobbing around in a liferaft. Pete is a serial adventurer, who modestly describes himself as not having a career, but rather a series of daft ideas, that he then makes happen. When is a daft idea not a daft idea? Pete Goss

Episode 32: Anthony Manrique and Emma Stevens
Money makes the world go round? Anthony Manriques “Have faith in other people because they just want to help. One of the most beautiful things you can do is to put yourself in an uncertain situation and allow people to access their innate kindness because when you see the joy that people get from sharing and helping - it’s wonderful.” (Anthony Manriques) How would most of us feel if we were in a foreign country with absolutely no money, not even enough to get home? Scared? Vulnerable? Maybe even a failure?

Episode 31: Nick Jaffe
From 2006-2009 Nick Jaffe sailed a 26-foot sailboat from Europe to Australia, via the Atlantic ocean, Rocky Mountains & Pacific, a total of 743 days - not letting a few minor details get in the way of his plans, like the fact that he had no money, and didn’t know how to sail. He did it - mostly - solo. Last year he sailed from San Francisco to Sydney in his boat Harmony. His website says he is interested in independent small business, meaningful living, decentralisation, freedom, non-corporatism, transparency, community oriented economies, creativity, solo sailing, the ocean, risk, and wildness. Nick and I have been in touch since 2010, and he kindly hosts my website on his Serversaurus servers. If you look at their website you’ll see that they will plant a tree for every like and follow they get, which says a lot about the way Nick does business. He also created an earlier website for me, and I used a special app he had created to allow me to send Tweets from the Pacific - it’s surprisingly complicated to post Tweets from the ocean - and his Nomaddica app that allowed supporters to sponsor a mile of my Indian Ocean crossing. Nick has always been an absolute pleasure to work with, so I was delighted to welcome him to the Adventure Podcast.

Episode 30: Greg Kolodziejzyk
Greg Kolodziejzyk is an incredible athlete from Canada, specialising in human-powered endurance events - and with a real passion to get us all off our backsides and out and doing more exercise. He certainly leads by example - he has completed 12 Ironman triathlons, two dozen marathons, qualified for Boston marathon, and 5 ultra marathons. Me with Greg (left) and Colin Angus He holds world records for longest distance traveled in 24 hours (records are with International Human Powered Vehicle Association):- Sept 2008 – World record for the most distance traveled by human power on water - 154 miles- July 2006 – World record for the most distance traveled by human power on land - 647 miles I’ve been following Greg’s newsletter since 2007. Later that year he and his wife, Helen, were kind enough to let me stay in their lovely ski lodge in Whitefish, Montana. Greg also designed my Savage logo, which i

Episode 29: Jo Royle
I first met Jo Royle when she was preparing to skipper the Plastiki - a boat made out of 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles. (Just to clarify, this was not the JUNK Raft that I met up with on the Pacific, which was the cheap and cheerful version.) The Plastiki was an altogether more ambitious project, created by David de Rothschild, to showcase cradle to cradle design philosophies.

Episode 28: Reza Pakravan
Reza was born in Iran. After retiring from semi-professional basketball 13 years ago, he has cycled the entire Annapurna Circuit in the Nepalese Himalayas and the full length of the Caspian Sea. In 2011, Reza set the record for the fastest crossing of the Sahara on a bicycle, from Algeria to Sudan. It took him a little over 13 days to cover 1,084 miles. When I first met Reza he was still working as a financial analyst in London, and preparing for his next big challenge. Last year he and his colleague Steve Pawley attempted to break the speed record for cycling 11,000 miles from Kapp to Cape, from Norway to South Africa, through 21 countries. Malaria, food poisoning, dehydration and cockroaches got in their way, but it still makes for an epic adventure. Both expeditions were to raise money to build schools in Madagascar.

Episode 27.1: Mikael Strandberg
Mikael Strandberg is a renowned Swedish explorer, who started his professional career 28 years ago. He has cycled from Chile to Alaska, from Norway to South Africa, and from New Zealand to Cairo – a total of 90,000 kilometres (56,000 miles)

Episode 26: Arita Baaijens
Arita Baaijens is a Dutch biologist, explorer, photographer and the author of several books and numerous articles. She has carried out more than 25 expeditions (3-6 months at a time) with her own caravan of camels all over Egypt and the Sudan, where her knowledge of the desert - and camels - often put her male companions to shame. In 2013, she left the desert behind to spend 101 days on horseback as she explored the Altai Mountains, a little-known region that lies on the border of Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan.

Episode 24: Jason Lewis
I have to confess that I am a little in awe of this podcast's guest, and I don’t say that lightly. Between 1994 and 2007, Jason Lewis travelled over 45,000 miles under his own power to complete the first human-powered circumnavigation of the world. He used bicycles, rollerblades, kayaks, swimming, rowing, walking, and his trusty pedal-powered boat Moksha to travel though 37 countries in 5 continents, and across 2 oceans and one sea.

Episode 23: David Kroodsma
There must have been something in the air in 2005 – David Kroodsma set out on his journey the same month I set out on Atlantic (Nov 2005) but arrived a year later (March 2007). In the meantime, he and his bicycle had covered 16,000 miles across 16 countries, from San Francisco to Tierra Del Fuego.

Episode 22: Oliver Hicks
Ocean rower Oliver Hicks is nothing if not ambitious. He warmed up by doing the Marathon des Sables and the Yukon River Quest, and by the age of 23 he had rowed solo across the Atlantic from New York to the Isles of Scilly, in a time of 124 days, becoming the youngest person ever to row an ocean solo, and the first to row solo from the US to the UK.

Episode 21: Rosie Stancer
Rosie and I first met back in 2005, when I wanted to pick her brains about expedition nutrition. Memorably – and accurately - described as a cross between Tinkerbell and the Terminator, Rosie is an outstanding polar explorer. In 1997 she was part of the McVities Penguin Polar Relay team. Listeners might remember that one of our early guests was Victoria Riches, who was also part of that all-female team.

Episode 20: Lloyd Figgins
Lloyd Figgins is an adventurer and speaker, and a risk management specialist. He has visited over 60 countries, and (of course) has rowed across an ocean - the Atlantic in 2011. He used that voyage to conduct scientific research into marine creatures, and continued that work in summer of last year up in the Arctic, particularly focusing on whales and dolphins.
40 minutes | Jan 22, 2014
Episode 19: Matt McFadyen
Matt McFadyen is a record-breaking polar adventurer and sailor, and now an inspirational speaker with Peak Teams. He has been on three expeditions to the North Pole, becoming the youngest Australian to do so, and two long-haul sailing expeditions to Antarctica - in fact, that's how it all started, back when he was just 22 years old.
48 minutes | Jan 14, 2014
Episode 18: Sean Conway
In 2012 Sean Conway set out to become the fastest person to cycle around the world. He was on course for the world record, averaging an amazing 180 miles per day, when he was run over in America suffering a fractured spine.

Episode 17: Anna Hughes
In the summer of 2011, Anna Hughes cycled 4,000 miles around Britain, taking 10 weeks. In spring 2013, she did the same trip, by sailing boat.
