EP43 – How to Become Indiana Jones, with Simon Donato PhD

Simon Donato might be best known for creating and starring in the television show Boundless, as well as the author of The Boundless Life.

But beyond his epic pursuits as an ultra-endurance athlete in the worldwide adventure racing circuit, he’s a geologist passionate about combining field-based research with extreme athletics to explore new and culturally important frontiers.

His company, Adventure Science, was built to do just that. It is a non-profit organization that pairs super fit adventure athletes with researchers, taking them into some of the most remote and hard to reach places on our planet to conduct scientific, conservation, and humanitarian projects. Simon, along with wife Chanelle Mayer, also hosts the Adventure Science podcast.

In addition to Adventure Science, Simon founded Canada’s original swim-run series, Amphibious Challenge, and a gluten-free oatmeal company called Stoked Oats. He is also an athlete ambassador for Merrell, Suunto, and Farm to Feet.
