In this special edition of Backstage Live, join guest host Peter Gwin, of National Geographic’s Overheard podcast, and professional climber and author Mark Synnott. This interactive conversation will focus on the highly anticipated release of Synnott’s new book, The Third Pole: Mystery, Obsession, and Death on Mount Everest.
This is no ordinary adventure story. It crosses geographic, economic, social, and political lines with a team of dreamers, highly trained professional athletes, and agents working to keep some of Everest’s secrets concealed forever.
An excerpt from The Third Pole was the July 2020 National Geographic magazine cover story, and National Geographic’s acclaimed short documentary Lost on Everest (Disney+) provided a glimpse of the mountain mission. Gwin and Synnott will dive deeper into the experience and answer audience questions along the way.
