The Adventurers

Sometimes there are people who can do, what seem to the rest of us, impossible feats. They do it because they are driven, sometimes by hardship, sometimes by aspiration, but always by hope.

This series is about those people.

They are the ones who climb mountains of doubt, swim of oceans of fear, drive kilometres of craziness and ride hills of hope. Their lives are all very different but the things that inspire and drive them are the same; to take the impossible and make it possible.

In this series of podcast suitable for all ages, Sam Cowen shares the extraordinary tales of a few South Africans who dared to chase their dreams.
