Adventurer and explorer, Helen Thayer joined us last year to talk about her treks in the arctic, across deserts and among animals like polar bears and wolves – all after the age of 50. This time she shares her experiences from her latest travel to the Amazon where she spent weeks with her husband exploring over 1200 miles of Amazonian rivers and jungle. Join us for an encore presentation of Charlotte Talks with explorer Helen Thayer.

  1. I first heard Helen Thayer on a previous program talking about her Arctic adventure, so I was glad to hear the tales from the Amazon. This woman is something else! She is so inspiring and her stories are absolutely terrific. I thought true adventures like this were over, but evidently not! I’ve lined my sister up for adventuring with me in our 70’s and 80’s. She’s like a female version of Indiana Jones, but shows much more respect for the traditions of native people and for the condition of the Earth. This was one of the best interviews I’ve heard in a long time.
