Salmon Swim Upstream

By wildbase
Salmon Swim Upstream is a podcast about adventure and personal challenges, of the life changing sort. We talk to ordinary people, who have done some extraordinary things. We'll let Neil Armstrong explain the why... "I think we're going to the moon because it's in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It's by the nature of his deep inner soul... we're required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream".
