About Francesca Turauskis

Seize Your Adventure is a podcast that explores the spectrum of ‘adventure’ through stories and interviews with people with epilepsy.

After walking the Camino de Santiago, solo, in 2017, I became uncomfortable with descriptions such as 'brave' and 'inspirational' when people learned about my epilepsy diagnosis. I created Seize Your Adventure to connect with other adventurers with epilepsy and normalise the idea of epilepsy in adventure. Three years later, it is still the only place where people from both the adventure and epilepsy communities can listen to honest conversations about this crossover.

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.
Goals
$54.28 of $100 per month
