In this episode, I chat with Adventurer-Athlete Tarran Kent-Hume. Tarran is a veteran of a litany of epic adventures – chasing his dream of becoming a professional footballer in England from his native Australia, completing an Ironman triathlon, organising and competing in the world’s longest 5-a-side football match, climbing Mont Blanc, training and competing in Muay Thai in Thailand, and becoming a fitness model. However, we spend a lot of the show talking how Tarran and his friend Olie Hunter kayaked the length of the Amazon river last year(!) – from its source in the Peruvian Andes to its mouth in Brazil – a total distance of 6,500kms. Wrap your brain around that!
Beyond (or perhaps because of all this), Tarran has a beautiful approach to life that involves tackling his greatest fears. I don’t get inspired easily or cheaply (neither should you!), but it is hard not only to be inspired by Tarran, but to take away some things from his adventures that you can apply to your own. While his core is clearly tough-as-nails, he is very humble, introspective and funny. We have a wide-ranging conversation, heavily anchored in his Amazonian adventure:
The first I had met Tarran was to do this podcast – and I came away having felt that I had known him for a long time. It is a great and engaging conversation. Enjoy!
