Past guest Gavan Hennigan is back on the show! This time we get to hear about Gavan's solo row across the southern Atlantic. What do the stars and the milky way look like at night from the middle of the ocean? How does one cope with 50 days of solitude sitting in a 16 ft rowing for days on end? Gavan discusses overcoming his issues with addiction and how he turned drug addiction into an adventure passion. As if this wasn't enough adventure, Gavan even lets us in on his summer plan to row back across the northern Atlantic from New York City back to his home port in Galway Ireland. Listen in for another dose of inspiration!

Gina joins the Adventure Sports Podcast from the UK today to share her experiences with endurance cycle racing. Gina was the female soloist winner of Revolve 24 in 2016.
