The all time greatest

The original and greatest podcast on the internet. The greatest ever piece of climbing media. Kalous is the best interviewer there is and also the very soul of climbing. If you don’t like this podcast, you are not a real climber.

Great podcasts even better climbing podcast.

Great guests , terrible interviewer

I’ve listened to so many of these podcasts, how can someone who interviews people for a living be so bad at it! He spends so much time taking about himself ! Just ask the questions ! The guests are supper interesting, if Kalous could just get out of his own way this would be a great podcast !
