About

Seize Your Adventure is a podcast that explores the spectrum of ‘adventure’ through stories and interviews with people with epilepsy. It is geared toward people from both the adventure and epilepsy communities who want to listen to honest conversations about this crossover that has, until now, been hidden.

From long-distance hikes in Europe to skiing in snowstorms, the storytelling episodes will share life-changing journeys and the smaller moments spent between seizures.

The ‘chats’ with guests dive into the deeper stuff, the hidden aspects of taking on adventures with epilepsy - from carrying medication in a backpack, to assessing seizure risks in the wilderness and recognising limitations.

Other episodes investigate the perceptions of epilepsy and adventure within society.

Learn about epilepsy, then start planning your adventure.

Season One featured some of the most prominent advocates for epilepsy within the adventure community, including Jordan Wylie and Jake Quigley, as well as advocates from the epilepsy community such as Jade Nelson and Amanda Plomp.

Season Two showcases how epilepsy creates a constantly changing relationship with sports such as long distance cycling, hiking and surfing. It's a chance to live the adventure lifestyle vicariously, and the conversations about accepting and adapting to limits can help people navigate their own lives.
Goals
$19 of $100 per month
$100 a month will cover all the basic costs for Seize Your Adventure, such as RSS feed, website hosting, auto transcripts and internet.

This means I can get at least one episode out EVERY month, without losing money.
