Robert Young Pelton has made a career of tracking down warlords and interviewing people in the most dangerous places in the world. He's been kidnapped in Colombia, survived an assassination attempt in Uganda, and joined the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Outside editor Chris Keyes wanted to know how spending that much time on the edge has affected him in the long term. But the answer's not what you'd think.
I signed up a while ago for the RYP newsletter, so when it dropped into my box on Monday I wasn't surprised. It was a quick note from the man himself about a recent piece he'd done for VICE on South Sudan. I asked if he wanted to come pimp the piece on the PTPC and I got slightly more than I asked for. This is without a doubt the most fact filled and deep podcast we've done. You probably have a personal narrative of Africa in general that goes something like this: hot, shit hole, large animals, poor, dangerous, needs help. If that's what you think, stand by to have your ideas turned on their head. It took about 90 minutes for Robert to walk Steve & I through what's going on there, and we still only scratched the surface. For more on any of this stuff, you can find Robert here or on Facebook. To read the article on VICE go here, and for Robert's super beefy rippingly effective knives, take a look here.
Robert Young Pelton, author of "The World's Most Dangerous Places", shares his thoughts on the benefits of getting fired, running Route Irish in Iraq, being kidnapped by Columbians, and offers up a great perspective on livin' the dream. "Basically I'm famous for still being alive". Journalist, photographer, and all around adventurer, Robert offers that rare perspective of a man who has followed his dreams no matter what (once he turned 40.) Starting out as a poor kid and then being a lumberjack, blaster, advertiser and then launching into the corporate world, Pelton decided when he was 40 that making money and driving a Rolls Royce wasn't the be all end all of life, so he took off to some of the world's shit holes and decided to live. Enjoy the show with a modern day truth seeker!
