Nat Geo Explorer Spencer Wells Returns; We talk virus mutations and his view on how much the world is about to change

The Vance Crowe Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more
National Geographic Explorer and population geneticist Spencer Wells is back.  I respect him tremendously but I love interviewing him because I can't wrap my head around how big his predictions of doom and gloom are regarding Coronavirus.  We talk about the economy, the mutations of the disease, and how society will change. 

National Geographic Explorer in Residence and world renown population geneticist Spencer Wells joined Vance Crowe from his hideout in Indonesia where he has decided to wait out Coronavirus.  We discuss if blood types matter, how past civilizations faced pandemics, when to lift the quarantine and what will happen if hunger spreads as a result of the disease (or the cure).

During our first jarring discussion, I made personal decisions about preparing for the future- following this interview, I am really starting to wonder what the world will look like.  To follow Spencer check out his blog: https://medium.com/@spwells/the-moyo-diaries-1-d14c0cd10aab

Vance Crowe on Twitter: @VanceCrowe

This is the 41st interview in the ongoing series of Coronavirus perspectives. I believe that society will have the rules re-written when we come out of this global pandemic and it is important to hear how various individuals and industries are handling themselves amidst the crisis.  

This series seeks to reveal many perspectives that will otherwise be ignored by both mainstream media and you might not see on your social media channels.  I believe that the Overton-Window will be wide open and new rules are going to be created about how we operate in a post Coronavirus world.

There are No Bad Dogs - A Conversation with Matt Beisner of Zen Dog in LA and the star of Nat Geo Wild’s Dog Impossible Show

The Woof Life Show - A Podcast for Dog Lovers
Episode artwork
Read more

In this episode of The Woof Life Show the podcast for dog lovers, Lauren Farricker has a conversation with Matt Beisner of  Zen Dog in LA and the star of Nat Geo Wild’s Dog Impossible Show

Note to my listeners, I am obsessed with Dog Impossible and I am so excited to chat with Matt to learn more about the show.

Beisner, owner of THE ZEN DOG http://www.thezendog.com, a cutting-edge dog facility in downtown Los Angeles, believes there are no bad dogs and knows every dog is capable of transformation. Through his work at THE ZEN DOG, Beisner risks his life and limbs for these animals because, as he says, “I used to be like them.”  After his own life was saved through personal transformation, he rescued a dog, found his calling and came to understand that every relationship, especially that which you have with your dog, only works if it’s based on Respect, Trust and Love.

Beisner’s background makes him a fascinating person to chat with, Matt previously struggled with substance abuse and he found himself in jail. While recovering after getting out of jail, Beisner was challenged by an aggressive terrier who was owned by his roommate. That terrier named Kingston proved to be a turning point for him and his transformation. Beisner began to work with this dog and then began to tackle more cases, this was the inception of Zen Dog. Beisner experienced a quick rise to stardom when a celebrity client leveraged Beisner to help with a dog that they were struggling with. His approach that there are no bad dogs make him a final contact for a lot of people who find themselves at their wit’s end.

Beisner brings a unique and gentle approach to building relationships with each pet. “I’m a teacher at heart,” states Beisner. “Helping hopeless dogs is my purpose.”  Catch up on Dog Impossible on streaming platforms and enjoy this conversation which includes a deep-dive into the case covered in the show.

#174 Nat Geo Photographer & Cave Diver - Ben Horton

The Kyle Thiermann Show
Episode artwork
Read more

Ben Horton has based his career on being able to go places that other people either cannot, or don’t want to go. From thousands of feet underwater to the most remote regions in the arctic, Ben’s passion is to use photography as a means to inspire people to take stewardship of the planet. Ben started his career with National Geographic by telling the story of the sharks of Cocos Island. He traced the illegal fishing industry from Costa Rica to China, and as a result of his work helped to increase the park boundaries and protection of two of Costa Rica’s national parks. He was awarded the National Geographic Society’s first ever Young Explorer Grant for his work, and he has since moved on to receive a number of other National Geographic grants, assignments, and recently stared in a documentary for National Geographic featuring his work in Thailand. Ben is based in southern California, where he works primarily on adventure campaigns.
