Episode Summary

Paul Deegan
Paul was thrown out the back of a car at 80 miles per hour when he was 15 years old. This seemed to knock some sense into him. Two years later he proposed and subsequently co-led a 47-strong expedition to clean up 35 years’ worth of rubbish that had accumulated at Everest Base Camp. Since then, Paul has spent most of his time involved in the expedition world, from leading treks to writing about his adventures for newspapers and magazines.Paul has organised an expedition to a previously unexplored mountain range in Central Asia, followed the world’s most dangerous schoolrun along a frozen river in a gorge deeper than the Grand Canyon, and visited Mos Espa on Tatooine. He has made three attempts to reach the summit of Everest. Paul’s expeditions have been covered by the BBC, The Guardian, and The Baghdad Times.moreless
