1. Adventure Philanthropy: Traveling the World and Making it Better Dr Chris Stout 56:12

This episode features Glen Heggstad, a renaissance man who has circumnavigated the globe four times, most of which was on a motorcycle—solo.  But he would be the first to say he was not alone, as he found friendship and family everywhere he went. He’s also a competition wining master martial artist and instructor, author of two books chronicling his adventurous life (One More Day Everywhere: Crossing 50 Borders on the Road to Global Understanding—including being kidnapped and held for weeks in Columbia by rebels (Two Wheels Through Terror: Diary of a South American Motorcycle Odyssey). In fact, this latter experience was made into a National Geographic docudrama, Locked Up Abroad, that has been seen worldwide in a number of languages. Glen’s hardscrabble upbringing has not diminished his humanity, which is also expressed in his inimitable spirit—for example, he donates all royalties from his books to Room to Read.

His story is as unique as it is inspirational, and is a keen demonstration of living a life in full.
