Hero Forge, Episode 38: Scott Sears

Scott Sears, at just 26, is about to embark on a solo, unassisted, unaccompanied trek to the South Pole in order to stake his claim to a world record, while also raising funds for the Gurkha Welfare Trust. As a former Junior Officer within the Gurkha regiment, and having been in Nepal during the terrible earthquake there last year, he is highly motivated. However, he faces 200mph winds, temperatures as low as -50C and he will be dragging more than 100kg of kit over some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet. In this episode, Scott and I chat about his imminent departure and how he has been preparing for this incredible challenge.

In 2017 and 2018, Andy Fisher created a podcast called the Hero Forge project. In 2019 he appeared on the Movers Mindset podcast (episode 60). In response to his interview on Movers Mindset, several people expressed interest in hearing the Hero Forge podcast, and we—Andy and Craig—are delighted to present these audio files here for your enjoyment!

You can find Andy’s book, The Hero Forge on Amazon and you can reach him these days via his photography web site, Andy Lee Fisher Headshots. If you’d like to discuss the Hero Forge podcast, (or anything else related to Movers Mindset,) please consider joining the Movers Mindset community.
