Life, Interrupted with Simon Thomas
Simon Thomas explores human endurance through the toughest times. In a series of interviews with well-known celebrities and notable people, he discovers how crisis and desperation can lead to hope and inspiration for a new and happy life.
Here we will discover that people from all walks of life have endured the most difficult times. That there is hope. That our most desperate moments can reveal strength and resilience we didn’t know we had. That things can, and will, get better.
In this incredible interview, Simon talks to Duncan Slater about his time in Afghanistan. From an young age Duncan endured difficult times, none more challenging than his experience during military service when a bomb exploded underneath him. Duncan explains how despite losing both of his legs, he went on to run ultra marathons in the desert and ride a bike from Lands End to John O Groats.
