Episode 12: Robert Young Pelton

Robert Young Pelton, author of "The World's Most Dangerous Places", shares his thoughts on the benefits of getting fired, running Route Irish in Iraq, being kidnapped by Columbians, and offers up a great perspective on livin' the dream.

"Basically I'm famous for still being alive". Journalist, photographer, and all around adventurer, Robert offers that rare perspective of a man who has followed his dreams no matter what (once he turned 40.)

Starting out as a poor kid and then being a lumberjack, blaster, advertiser and then launching into the corporate world, Pelton decided when he was 40 that making money and driving a Rolls Royce wasn't the be all end all of life, so he took off to some of the world's shit holes and decided to live.

Enjoy the show with a modern day truth seeker!

Episode 5: Shawn Alladio, PWC master and Paleo Treats Ambassador

Ever wondered if a 50 year old mother of two could do a man's job? Listen in as we talk with Shawn Alladio, world class PWC rider (Jetski for the uninitiated), big wave rescue specialist, and all around tough human. Shawn talks about big waves, heavy threats, and what it feels like to pull a man out of a burning car.

Shawn is one of our favorite people, she doesn't pull any punches "If you're not eating Paleo Treats then you're f-ing stupid", and when she sees a problem she wades in and gets down to business. She doesn't let anything stop her and she has a way of describing the world that is at once completely foreign and yet totally matches with our own intuition.

While this is one of our longer podcasts we think it's worth every minute. Go ahead, have a listen!
