Peter Larson is a commercial paleontologist who uncovered the most complete specimen of Tyrannosaurus Rex to date. He affectionately named this massive fossil “Sue” after the woman who initially found her. He was eventually charged and taken to court by the US Government for illegally removing fossils off of Federal Land even though he had paid the landowner before he removed anything. It would take him a long time to resolve this and more, and he ultimately served several years in prison as a result. Peter is a man who believes that giving up is not an option for him. He believes that fighting for what you believe, and keep on keeping on is the right path in life. If you are facing any life circumstance where you are considering giving up or giving in we hope you will listen to this episode first. Peter is currently hoping for a pardon from President Obama before he leaves office. We wish him that and more and believe that you will too once you listen to his story.
