Tap the "PLAY" arrow above and listen in as Robert Young Pelton, author of "The World's Most Dangerous Places", shares his thoughts on the benefits of getting fired, running Route Irish in Iraq, being kidnapped by Columbians, and offers up a great perspective on livin' the dream.
"Basically I'm famous for still being alive". Journalist, photographer, and all around adventurer, Robert offers that rare perspective of a man who has followed his dreams no matter what (once he turned 40.)
Starting out as a poor kid with his first jobs being a lumberjack, blaster, and advertiser and then launching into the corporate world, Pelton decided when he was in his mid 40s that making money and driving a Rolls Royce wasn't the be all end all of life, so he took off to some of the world's shit holes and decided to live a little.
If you're trying to decide when you think you'll make your break from the rat race, give this show a listen and enjoy the thought processes of a modern day truth seeker! Also check out:
