Show Notes

Brando 'Wildboy' Yelavich is an explorer and the first person to circumnavigate the coastline of New Zealand on foot. He's also spent 35 days alone on Stewart Island, traversed the Greenland icecap, and circumnavigated Vancouver Island in a kayak with his partner, Ngaio. Brando is always pushing the limits of adventure and has just announced his next major expedition, which we talk about at length. He's also a deeply philosophical thinker and we touch on his struggles with drugs and lack of direction as a teenager and his path to finding himself and discovering fundamental happiness.
