Enduring temperatures as low as -53°C, walking more than 3,000 miles on ice, and swimming through arctic waters are some pretty unbelievable exploits.

But today’s guest - record-breaking Polar Explorer Ann Daniels - has made these seemingly impossible feats a reality! In 2002, Ann became the first woman in history to ski to the North and South Poles as part of all-female teams. She has sledge-hauled over 4,000 miles, completing over 10 polar expeditions and surviving over 400 days on the ice. She’s been named one of the “Top 20 Great British Adventurers of all time” and described as “living proof that humans really can reach new peaks”.

During the episode, Ann talks about finding her purpose in life, the harsh realities of completing expeditions in some of the most inhospitable environments on the planet, having triplets, and what it means to overcome fear and hard times.
