The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“There are fishermen…that go out swimming, with nets, they don’t even have a boat. They’ll go out with nets in crocodile infested waters. And they’re like, ‘Well, we don’t have a choice, I can’t afford a boat, I need to eat, my family needs to eat,’” says Levison Wood, explorer who walked almost the entire Nile River in one go.


We’re continuing our Classics with some conversations that tell us about the uncharted places in the world that many of us haven’t even considered visiting. These explorers literally risked their lives to do what they’ve accomplished. In this episode you’ll learn…


  • How Levison Wood walked from Rwanda to Egypt along the Nile River, trekking deserts, swamps, and warzones
  • Shannon Galpin’s stories from Afghanistan, the prisons, and how she’s helped Afghan women push for more freedom
