Galapagos | Meet The Guides

January 11, 2022

Here’s the inside scoop on this episode. In late 2021 I traveled to the Galapagos and thought it would be fun to try something new on the pod. 

My goal was to capture the stories of locals, guides, and even some of the wildlife through sounds and live experiences. 

So what you’re about to hear is a compilation of interviews, live sounds from our explorations, and hopefully a whole lotta inspiration! 

We discuss what makes the Galapagos utterly unique in the world, what it was like for some of our guides to grow up without electricity, cross the Pacific in a canoe, and bike ride across South America. But most importantly – these special folks share the lessons they hope visitors to these enchanted islands walk away with.

Listen to hear:

  • 02:13 – About the experience of one child to whom the expedition holds a special place in her heart
  • 11:49 – The Blue-footed booby, and why this territory was a revelation for Darwin
  • 31:34 – How coexistence with giant tortoises makes life better
  • 35:39 – Why Galapagos is as much a natural laboratory as a culture of conservation
  • 49:48 – What the life of naturalists looks like, and a few adventure stories
  • 61:02 – About the layers of the wildlife that lives here
  • 63:38 – What our guides offer as a lesson in life while on the Galapagos expedition
