The Risky Science of Exploration

  • Kenny Broad, Cave Diver

It takes a special kind of person to plunge willingly into an underwater cave in Cuba, or risk studying cocaine trafficking in Jamaica, or chase venomous snakes across Vietnam. Fortunately, environmental anthropologist Kenny Broad is an extra special kind of person.

National Geographic’s 2011 Explorer of the Year, Broad finds a surprising amount to laugh about as he shares stories of his triumphs, tragedies, and just plain weird experiences while watching science evolve to further our knowledge of the world.
