If you enjoy the outdoor oriented conversations then check out some of the other adventurers I’ve chatted with on my podcast including…
In episode 295 of The Strenuous Life Podcast I talk with Frank Wolf who exemplifies endurance, determination and perseverance.
His first major expedition 25 years ago was an epic 8,000 kilometer paddle across Canada in a single season and he hasn’t slowed down since. Whether it’s cycling 2,000 km on the frozen Yukon River in winter or paddling the entire coast of British Columbia he’s constantly out there and pushing himself, exemplifying the strenuous life.
Les Stroud, better known as ‘survivorman’, has produced many survival-themed shows for The Discovery Channel, The Science Channel, The Outdoor Life Network, and YTV. In these shows he usually goes out into very challenging wilderness situations and tries to survive using only the materials at hand and minimal equipment.
Join us as we deal about dealing with hunger, thirst, heat, cold, animals and terrible conditions; it’s gritty, difficult and very, very real.
Will Gadd is an extreme athlete, perhaps best known for ice climbing Niagara Falls in the winter. But he’s also pioneered many novel routes, including Helmcken Falls, icebergs in the ocean, and underground river tunnels in the Greenland ice.
In this chat we talked about those first ascents, but also touched on mindset, dealing with risk and unknowns, handling close calls, the 25 people he’s known who have died in the mountains, fear of loss vs hope of gain, and how to execute on audacious goals.
Stephan’s Dispatches from the Arctic
In 2019 I completed a solo canoe trip from Missinipe, Saskatchewan, to Arviat, Nunavut. This journey took me up and down four different rivers and across two of Canada’s largest lakes.
This link here takes you to my written dispatches from the field as well as to a series of shorter podcasts I recorded while en route.
