It's one of the episodes you've been waiting for... Jody and David speak with Sean Conway, adventurer extraordinaire and multiple record holder.

But that's not before the chaps go off on a complete tangent about news and current affairs (seriously, not seriously), wannabe explorers wearing pants up Snowden and midlife crises. 

In this episode, here's what you'll discover:

  • Why Sean sold his business for £1... and then what he did with that £1
  • How to cycle across the world on a budget...
  • ... and survive being knocked over with a car (and then going on to CONTINUE the run)
  • Why Sean WANTS you to become an investment banker and forget about 
  • David comes up with an idea to discourage people running bad marathons
  • David then comes up with the strangest idea for a new race, involving the star of Con Air
  • David reveals his race nightmare at the Edinburgh Ultra (and finally settles the question of which is better... PS It's not Edinburgh Marathon)

Watch out for the second part of the interview where Sean reveals more about his adventures.

For those who want to get straight to the interview with Sean, The Silk Cut is at XX minutes
