Tim Ferriss: fear is your friend.

Tim Ferriss as a child [image] power squatting. I thought I was the Incredible Hulk. When I was 7 I went to summer camp (my parents needed the reprieve). At noon each day we’d go to the docks and jump into the water. I’d been born with lung problems so I always had issues with […]

Frans Lanting: Photographer

A year ago at EG we shared images on the history of life on earth: from the big bang to the present. What are you going to do after that? Outer space? We decided to do something more organic and specific. We focused on one group of 35 chimpanzees: CHIMPS at the edge (co-produced by […]

I’m a jungle guy, I don’t know how to use this electrical stuff sometimes. 1 frog can kill 500 people. I licked it on Conan O’brian. Today I’m going to talk about ants, I grew up looking at ants, I just keep looking. This is a bulldog ant, and can leap up and catch honeybees […]
