    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.

    Board Meetings | Top 5 Ways to Salvage a Season

    This episode was recorded in Summer of 2018, but got lost in the archives. Now that climbing areas are beginning to open again, it seemed like a good time to resurrect it.

    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?

    Lockdown | Motivated or Not with Special Guests

    So many people right now are struggling with motivation right now. Rather than give only my advice, I sought out the opinions of past and future guests including Sam Elias, Eva Lopez, Jonathan Siegriest, and many others.

    Board Meetings | The Art of Learning Climbing

    Board Meetings | The Art of Learning Climbing

    In this episode Nate and I breakdown the lessons we learned from listening to Episode 412 of the Tim Ferriss podcast with guest Josh Waitzkin.  Josh is the author of The Art of Learning, one of our favorite books, and has a great approach to the learning process. On Tim's podcast, Josh essentially asks the question "What holes do we have in our mental models for learning?" from the perspective of his new hobby. We try to apply the same questions and perspectives to climbing.

    Listener Question | How to Know When to Get Better vs. Get Stronger?

    We're switching things up and answering some of the good questions our community has for us. First up is a really great question that we should all be asking ourselves pretty much constantly - How do I know when to focus on getting better vs. getting stronger?
