We talk to a writer based out of the Yukon Territory in Canada this week. Eva Holland moved to the area a number of years ago, in order to set up her freelance business. She has found it has been a great way to differentiate herself. In doing so, she has become an adventure writer - a surprise to her considering she rarely ever even camped prior to taking this plunge. This pursuit has led her into stories where she's rafting 60 hours in the Yukon waters, learning to mountain climb even though she's afraid of heights, and taking stock of the growing tourism business up North, where climate change's impact has become most prevalent.
Stories we discuss in the episode:
- Exposure Therapy and The Fine Art of Scaring the Shit Out of Yourself
- Hellbent But Not Broken (And here's the piece written by her fellow rafter and friend, Jacqueline Ronson)
- Cruising Through the End of the World
- The Wildest Party On Earth
