Guest Starring on Angry Planet in the Brazilian Amazon

Hey ya’ll! Guess what?! I’m on television!

That’s right. I had a secret that I was keeping for months, and I finally announced it on my YouTube channel last Wednesday. The big announcement is that I travelled to the Brazilian Amazon last November where I guest starred in episode of Angry Planet alongside George Kourounis.

Here’s a sneak peak of the episode I am in:

Angry Planet is a television show about extreme encounters with our rapidly changing environment.  The series is in its 4th season (it got picked up again after a 5-year hiatus) and will include travels to the volcanoes of the Pacific, the coldest city on Earth, Brazil’s treacherous Amazon River (that’s the episode I’m in), and the deep caves of Laos in search of the unmistakable changes that are endangering Earth’s delicate ecosystem.

Angry Planet airs every Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, on Pivot TV. This means that only Americans have access to the show at the moment however, you will be the first ones to know once it comes to other parts of the world.

If you are able to stream it online somewhere, please let me know by leaving a comment below.

This was my second time visiting the Amazon. The first time I visited this magical place was in 2007 when I spent a few days in the Peruvian Amazon with Siya. This time around, I was in a much more remote part of the Amazon where only a hand full of adventurers have gone including Theodore Roosevelt and Cândido RondonIn fact, the Roosevelt–Rondon Scientific Expedition was jointly led by Theodore Roosevelt and Cândido Rondon in 1913–1914 to be the first explorers of the 1000-mile long “River of Doubt.” 

So, myself, George and the crew were on a mission to follow in the footsteps of both Roosevelt and Rondon to try and find one of their 800-pound dugout canoes they had used 100-years ago. While doing so, we too would be battling rapids and malaria and swimming in piraña infested waters just as Roosevalt and Rondon had done during their expedition. It was a great adventure to say the least, and I am so fortunate to have been able to have this experience.

For those of you who have seen the episode already, let me know what you thought of it below. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, I can’t wait for you to! It will actually be airing on Pivot again the follow days and times:

  • Tuesday, May 12th at 2:30PM and 11:00PM EST
  • Sunday, May 24th at 12:30PM EST

Now, I leave you with a bunch of photos from the adventure taken by the lovely Jocelito Camarago.
