Geek Of The Week: Don Wildman

Don Wildman is the current host and narrator of Off Limits, Mysteries at the Museum, and Monumental Mysteries on the Travel Channel. He also hosted and narrated Weird Travels that formerly aired on the Travel Channel. Most of Wildman’s shows, like Off Limits and Cities of the Underworld for example, feature him exploring forbidden holes and various locations. Most of his recent programming follows a mysterious or paranormal theme.

Before Travel Channel, Wildman served as the intrepid host of History’s adventure series, “Cities of the Underworld,” where he explored hundreds of mysterious tunnels, catacombs, crypts and bunker systems found beneath more than forty cities and regions around the globe. Wildman has worked across a spectrum of subjects from history to engineering to sports adventure. On ESPN’s “Men’s Journal,” he paddled wild rivers in Chile, scaled towering mountains in Oregon, and fly-fished until he could fish no more. In 2011, he hosted the three-part historical investigation series, “Filthy Cities” – a joint venture between Discovery Channel and BBC – which landed him on the slopes of Italy’s Mount Vesuvius, delving into the infamous tragedy of Pompeii.
