Guest Interview February 21, 2013
Wade Davis - Extended

Wade Davis, author, anthropologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence is in the red chair. You don't want to get into a storytelling contest with this guy: he's gotten high from licking toads in South America. He's watched a guy turn into a zombie in Haiti. He spent twelve years retracing the steps of the first ever attempts to climb Mount Everest. And at the moment, Wade's helping to launch National Geographic's Lindblad Expeditions - trips that, starting this summer, will take eager adventurers to the Arctic Ocean and up and down both Canadian coasts.

We couldn't air the whole conversation when Wade's interview aired, so here's the complete extended version of his talk with George.
