Everyday People Living Inspirational Lives is a podcast that shares the inspirational stories of some amazing people who live in the communities that we are all part of. We were super lucky to be approached by host Ian Pitchford, who sat down (remotely, of course!) with WEM Founder Mark Hannaford to discuss the who, what and why of WEM.
The abstract below is taken from the Everyday People Living Inspirational Lives podcast:
Mark is world’s first honorary associate professor awarded for his work in Extreme Medicine by the University of Exeter Medical School and is the founding director of World Extreme Medicine and Across the Divide Expeditions and a Fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Society of Arts.
