John Pollard pioneered recreational white water rafting in peninsular India nearly two decades ago. As the founder of Southern River Adventures, a rafting company, and the co-owner of Off The Grid, a remote jungle home stay, ‘The Riverman’ has been encouraging folks to enjoy the outdoors since his teenage years.

In this episode, listen to his fascinating adventures from being a backpacker traveller exploring Southeast Asia to establishing himself as a top-notch river guide at wonderful locations across the world. If not charting a new river course, you’ll find him cycling alpine trails and scaling the Himalayan peaks!
