Hero Forge, Episode 7: Scott Carney

Scott Carney is an investigative journalist and an anthropologist. He has worked in some of the most dangerous corners of the world and has uncovered international kidnapping rings, the illegal trade of human organs on the black market, and has most recently published an incredible book entitled ‘What Doesn’t Kill You’. In it, he charts his experiences alongside Wim Hof (The Iceman), surfing legend laird Hamilton and others, to test the limits of his own physiology in extreme environmental conditions.

In this interview we discuss the danger of false prophets and the importance of maintaining a healthy scepticism, the fact that we are all capable of so much more than we think, and how breath control and muscular contractions allowed Scott to ascend Mt. Kilimanjaro, without additional oxygen or acclimatisation, in just 28 hours, defying all standard scientific hypotheses!

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.
