S1E44: Bradley Trevor Greive
One of the best things about moving to the US is that I’ve met so many great Australians.
That wasn’t the plan. But that’s how it’s worked out.
And one of the greatest of these Australians is the best selling author, wild-life documentarian and former Paratrooper, Bradley Trevor Greive.
BTG, as we call him, has sold 30 million books in 29 languages across 115 countries. The Blue Day Book is certainly what launched him, but more recently there’s been Penguin Bloom, which is being made into a movie starring Naomi Watts.
BTG’s also an animal expert. He used to be one of those rugged Australians who’d showcase animals on Chelsea Lately and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
These days he hosts documentaries for Animal Planet about bears. But before that and the best selling author stuff, he was Platoon Commander in the Australian army.
Me, BTG and one my cats sat down for this interview in my living room and I started by asking him when he was most happy.
