Seize Your Adventure

By Francesca Turauskis

Seize Your Adventure is a multi-tool: a great adventure podcast that is also an epilepsy podcast. From long-distance hikes in Europe to skiing in snowstorms, the storytelling episodes 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. And we investigate the perceptions of epilepsy in society and the adventure community. Get bonus content on Patreon See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
