    Daniel Woods Used the N-Word in a Video and We're All Complicit

    Daniel Woods Used the N-Word in a Video and We're All Complicit

    Your favorite pro likely isn’t held accountable. There are several pro climbers out there who hold THEMSELVES accountable, and do a damned good job of it. But the sponsors, the photographers and filmmakers, their friends and fans - we don’t hold them accountable. We should.
    Last week I was shown a video shot and edited by Chad Greedy in 2010, part of which included a young Daniel Woods trying The Game. In the video, we hear Wu-Tang in the background. Chad very casually repeats the lyrics, “Shame on a N**** “ (not singing along, just repeating them back), and Daniel follows suit.
    It had nearly 28,000 views. Only one comment about the use of a racist slur. One comment said “best climbing video ever.”
    You can see the video at www.powercompanyclimbing.com/blog/n-word  I post the video not to shame Daniel or the other climbers involved. I post it here to point out how casual it all is. Nobody seems bothered. This is 100% part of the reason why Black climbers don’t feel comfortable at the crag. And then a video was edited - with this clip purposely left in - and they assumed that it was fine to post it on Youtube. WHY?
    Because they’ve never had to be accountable.
    In this episode Nate and I discuss the timeline of events of contacting sponsors and talking to Daniel, and the thought process we went through - which in itself is problematic. I’ll be unpacking my own thoughts and actions for a while. We went from destructive to constructive to secretive back to constructive. A podcast with Daniel was scheduled, which he ultimately backed out of after realizing he was woefully unprepared. Now here we are.

    Genevive Walker | Black Voices Matter

    Genevive Walker is unapologetic. She knows that it takes all types to make change, and she has the unique ability to be many of those types all at once. 
    In this episode I sit down with Genevive in between projecting days in Tensleep, WY - a very white town in a very white state that has no hate crime laws - to discuss racism and the ways it manifests in climbing. And what we can do about it.

    Board Meetings | Granny Shot: Do You Follow the Crowd?

    Board Meetings | Granny Shot: Do You Follow the Crowd?

    In this episode Nate and I have a discussion inspired by Episode 3 of Revisionist History from Malcolm Gladwell titled The Big Man Can't Shoot. Malcolm discusses Granovetter's theory of the Threshold Model of Collective Behavior through the lens of shooting free throws.
    We work through it in terms of climbing.

    Listener Question | Projecting, Tactics, and Training for Climbing After 40

    Listener Question | Projecting, Tactics, and Training for Climbing After 40

    In this episode I try to answer a few great but not easy questions from our listeners. 
    When do you keep grinding on a project vs. taking a step back and training for it?
    What are the differences of training in your 40's vs. your 20's and 30's? 
    If 2nd Try Sends can help your longterm projects, can longterm projecting help you send faster?

How could I have missed this podcast for so long?!

I only recently came across this podcast and I have to confess that I listened to almost all the episodes in the last two months. Who knows how I could have possibly stuck to my hangboard routine during this no-climbing-covid-19-period without this podcast to keep up my motivation! Even though I've been climbing and training for over a decade, I learned a lot of new things about training and nutrition through these incredibly well conducted interviews! Thanks a lot. Happy to have discovered this valuable resource!

I found this podcast a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Just started to listen from the first episode and making my way through the great content. I hope I will be ever able to catch up with the new episodes as well.
