A high altitude mountaineer travels through sub-zero temperatures, scales treacherous terrain, and carries hundreds of pounds of supplies. Many of us have very little in common with this person. We don’t need to worry about the lack of oxygen in the air or the extent of frostbite in our toes.

Yet, we are all human. There are certain ideas which apply to all of us, no matter if we are standing at 29,029 feet or sea level. Why is it important to step outside of our comfort zone? How do we weigh risk vs. reward? What impact does human behavior have on our decision making? On MtnMeister, we explore these ideas by talking with those who have found answers in the extremes.

Ben Schenck, the host of MtnMeister (pronounced Mountain Meister), asks thought-provoking and sometimes uncomfortable questions that you won't hear in a typical interview. Notable guests include Alex Honnold, Sasha DiGiulian, Ueli Steck, Jeremy Jones, Lynn Hill, Conrad Anker, Aaron Gwin and other adventurers in climbing, skiing, hiking, biking, and everything else in the mountains.

Love this podcast!

Well done guys! I have been listening off and on for a couple of years, but just recently began the daily routine of listening. Great guests and you ask all of the questions that I think I would, if given the chance. As a stay at home dad and registered guide, it's a great resource either when making supper at home or driving to meet clients somewhere.
Highly recommended!

I love hearing these stories, I just subscribed a few weeks ago and have tons of content to listen to. Keeps me interested in adventuring while I'm stuck in a work camp :). Top notch quality!
