The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“You know, I’m sure you’ve heard that old adage of, I guess it’s credited to Winston Churchill, when he gets up to speak about accomplishment...three lines he says, ‘Never give up. Never give up. Never give up.’ And I think that, without question, is the key,” says Will Roseman, Executive Director of the legendary Explorer’s Club.


In this episode, we take a look back at two original Spartan Up! interviews published in 2015.  The episode begins with Will Roseman telling Joe De Sena the stories of the legendary members of the Explorer’s Club, and ends with Dr. Delle’s conversation with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest living explorer. In this episode you’ll learn…


  • The importance of perseverance and assessing risk (Apollo 13)
  • The outside of the box thinking and extraordinary knowledge that explorers have (Fighting a leopard, hunting a man eating tiger, using feces as a chisel)
  • Overcoming fear (Even the world’s greatest explorer is afraid of heights)
  • How Sir Ranulph Fiennes, without doctors, survived a heart attack during a climb on Everest and later cut off his own fingers at his home
  • To surmount obstacles, have a cup of tea and figure out how to go around them.
