Like a Bigfoot Podcast #222: Paul Schurke — Retracing the Expeditions of Peary, Shackleton and Roosevelt

https://soundcloud.com/chris-ward-126531464/222-paul-schurke/s-tNFm5JWVWOc
This week’s episode is with adventurer, polar explorer, environmentalist, Minnesotan, and wonderfully nice guy Paul Schurke!!
Paul is a legend in the adventure world- completing multiple expeditions to the North Pole (including an unsupported trip in the 80s), dogsledding across Siberia (to convince the US and Soviet Union to open the Bering Strait to help out Inuit families), following in the footsteps of Teddy Roosevelt’s River of Doubt expedition in the Amazon, crossing South Georgia Island by the same route as Ernest Shackleton, and so much more.
He now lives on and is a huge proponent for the protection of the Boundary Waters in northern Minnesota (one of my favorite places on the planet), helped establish the Wilderness Inquiry (a program which has the mission of outdoor adventures from all walks of life)  and spends his time running the Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge in Ely, Minnesota.
In what became one of my favorite episodes yet, you will hear all about a lifetime of adventure with a wonderful storyteller!! Can’t wait to share this one with you all!!
Big thanks to my dad for telling me that I have to reach out to Paul after reading “Northland” by Porter Fox.  The lesson is…always listen to your dad!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #220: Alyssa Clark — Running 95 Marathons in 95 Days

This week I am very excited to welcome the fantastic runner Alyssa Clark to the podcast!

Alyssa has one of the most outstanding stories I’ve heard in a long time.  Once Covid locked her down in Italy, she decided that she was going to run a marathon every day for a few weeks.  Well…..being an ultrarunner (which gives you that extra dash of lunacy) a few weeks became a month which became two months which became the consistent routine of a marathon every morning before she found herself in the 70s, 80s and 90s.  She completely shattered the previous “Consecutive Marathon” World Record and more amazingly, did so while in the middle of a move back to the United States!

On top of all that, Alyssa is just a super knowledgeable runner and an awesome person to chat with! Recently she has cohosted a bunch of wonderful episodes for Rob Steger’s “Training For Ultra” Podcasts and began a website called Training4Adventure which shares all sorts of inspiring adventure stories.

Can’t wait for you guys to listen to this episode!

Also Rob is acting as our special cohost to intro Alyssa at the beginning of the show and chat filmmaking and his “Triple Crown of 200s” doc in the outro so I hope you all enjoy those segments as well!
