Conquering Everest

Zone 1 Radio's Matthew Layton presents Studio 1 - Vision Australia Radio’s weekly look at life from a low vision and blind point of view.

This week…

Matthew’s guest on this week’s show is an adventurer, a conqueror of summits and a positivity campaigner.

His name is Eric Wehenmayer

Erik was the first blind person to conquer Everest back in 2001. He’s also climbed the seven summits and kayaked the Colorado River.

However, Eric doesn’t see any of these as his most important achievement.

Next month he hosts the latest in his series of annual “No Barriers” summits - which are part of his mission to “empower people to shatter barriers, find their inner purpose, and contribute their very best to the world.”


Please do get in touch with the show on any of the subjects covered in this week’s show, or if there’s something else you think we need to talk about.

Your experience may be of help to someone else going through the same thing.

CALL or TEXT: 04 500 78834
