What an incredible show today as I sit down (in person) and chat with legendary explorer and adventurer Erling Kagge; a man of many firsts.

Back in 1990, he reached the north pole without support as part of a two-man team (they were the very first people to do that). Then in 1992-93, he did a solo unsupported expedition to the south pole (he was the first person to ever do that). He spent 50 days walking alone across Antarctica with no contact with anyone. And he also climbed Mt. Everest in 1994, which made him the first person to complete the 3 Poles Challenge on foot. Back in 2010, he did a 5-day long walk through the sewers of NY to the Atlantic Ocean. And in 2012, he walked the entire length of LA’s sunset boulevard.

We talk about his book Silence: In the Age of Noise, why silence is such an important part of our lives as humans, walking, travel of course, and a whole lot more.
