Today we had Les Stroud from Discovery Channel’s Surviorman on the air to talk about his new book “The Will to Live.” He gave us some incredible insight on his background as a survival expert as well as how he got into the business of making Survivorman. We asked him to share some of his wildest stories which range from the extremely sensational, such as being chased by a jaguar in the Amazon, to the physically taxing, such as fighting off heat stroke in the desert. After some quick lessons on why not to drink your own pee, or anyone else’s for that matter, he got into the topic of other “Survival” hosts. We couldn’t agree more that these people don’t have the chops or the balls to really go for true survival without the constant aid of a camera crew. We even got him to tell us that Bear Grylls better buy him a beer if they ever meet in a bar!
