Ep17: The Power of Perspective - Louis Nethercott

Season 1,  May 13, 2020, 03:00 AM

Last epsiode in the first series of the Mojo Podcast - an incredibly raw and powerful conversation with Louis Nethercott - Royal Marine veteran and extreme explorer.

As one listener to the Mojo Podcast pointed out in a recent review - this podcast series is about "deep and raw conversations that offer great perspectives each week". And that is an excellent summary of this week's conversation, which is the last in the first series of the Mojo Podcast.

Louis Nethercott is a former Royal Marine Commando, veteran of tours in Afghanistan and now one half of a duo on a quest to conquer the world's five largest islands...on foot!

His mojo story is brutally frank, certainly raw and incredibly inspiring. We talk about his wartime experiences, what he learned from the Royal Marines training and its ethos and how he’s applied this to his post military life. Louis is very open about his struggle with PTSD and the dark place he found himself - and how he emerged from that place.

Together with his mate and fellow veteran Ant Lambert, they crafted an idea for a huge adventure that would test them beyond anything they had experienced before - Expedition 5 was born. A world record attempt - two men walking unaided across the worlds’ 5 biggest islands. Through brutal jungles and across freezing icecaps.
Louis shares stories about the expeditions so far - after completing 4/5ths of the challenge - some of the deep lows and near death experiences, as well as the learning and joy the adventure has given him.

There is some strong language in this episode and so it's been marked as explicit.

Thank you for all the support and reviews so far, let's meet back here soon for series 2. Until then, I hope your mojo continues to flow.
