Baker Street with Thom Pollard

Thom Pollard

Baker Street with Thom Pollard brings you Stories That Inspire. I'm Thom Pollard, a filmmaker, mountaineer and inspirational speaker. My journeys have taken me around the globe, from Easter Island to the top of Mount Everest and everywhere in between. I'm fascinated with the nature of people and the human condition, what makes us tick, how extraordinary individuals find meaning even in the midst of tragedy. Join me as I share my adventures on Everest and beyond, and meet inspiring and successful people who have made their intentions a reality in entertainment, mountaineering, music, business and beyond. #StoriesThatInspire
