GST S3: Episode 102 - Wade Davis


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. Plus, some of the soldiers who will feature on CBC's 'March to the Top' are in the red chair. The program will document the challenges facing 12 wounded and ill Canadian vets as they struggle to reach the 20,350 foot summit of Island Peak, a mountain near Everest. And our panel features comedian and actor Jeremy Hotz.
