From never-before-told stories from our tours, exclusive updates from some of the world’s most unique locations and interviews with some of the most extraordinary people in the industry, we have a lot we cannot wait to share with you very soon. In the meantime, however, we would like to introduce you to the first episode of the Pioneer Podcast and the inspiration behind the project.
The Pioneer Podcast
The idea behind the Pioneer Podcast is simple. In our 10+ years of designing, pioneering and executing tours to some of the most remote corners and isolated places in the world, we have not only gathered a plethora of knowledge and stories but also have been so lucky to have an incredible community form around us from our pioneers to our local partners all around the world. We hope our podcast can serve as a platform to share these incredible stories and connect our community once again during these difficult times.
Who Has Been Featured on the Podcast So Far?
In the upcoming episodes, you can look forward to conversations with Dean Karelakas, author of the incredible adventure travel book “The Men in No Mans Land“, Joe Terwilliger, An instrumental member of the team that arranged the groundbreaking trips of ex NBA star Dennis Rodman to North Korea who also spent time with North Korean leader Marshal Kim Jong Un and finally ex-Premier League footballer Dave Kitson.
What Guests Can We Look Forward to in the Future?
While we do not want to give away too much at the moment, we have a long line of guests lined up from our local partners around the globe, politicians, members of our community and even Hollywood stars.
