Todd puts his mind to the test

Todd Samp­son’s Body Hack 2.0, Ten, Thurs­day, May 31 at 8.30pm


ADVENTURER and hu­man guinea pig Todd Samp­son (pic­tured) is on a mis­sion to in­ves­ti­gate some of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary peo­ple on the planet to see what we can learn from their lives.

To try to un­der­stand them, he will not only walk in their shoes but will hack into their world us­ing sci­ence as his guide.

But for most of us to­day, the com­forts of modern liv­ing mean we no longer need to adapt to sur­vive.

Do we still have this adapt­abil­ity?

To an­swer this ques­tion, Samp­son ex­plores some of the most chal­leng­ing en­vi­ron­ments and re­silient peo­ple on the planet.

He uses his body as a lab­o­ra­tory to test the sci­ence about our species and our abil­ity to go be­yond our lim­its.
