EP 17: Andrew Hughes - Explorer who summited Mount Everest, Seven Summits, South Pole and more

Episode Summary

In the wake of a failed congressional race and divorce, Andrew began climbing mountains, and started a journey that would literally take him to the top of the world, Mount Everest. Andrew has completed the seven summits, six of the seven volcanic summits, and the South Pole. He and his climbing partner look to be the 11th and 12th explorers in history to climb the seven summits, the seven volcanic summits, and be on the North and South poles (the "Explorer’s Grand Slam"). In this provocative and moving interview, Andrew talks about the emotion not only of reaching these great heights, but the lessons learned from both failed attempts at summits and returning to daily life in Seattle after Everest. This is an interview you don’t want to skip.
