JCPC 124 MORE CUBBY! FU*CK YES!
Gunshot say rewind, spin say the man forward, You want more Cubby you got more Cubby. More Brat, more ice, more Malc, more everything!
JCPC 123 Brian Hall
Brian Hall lived through one of the most exciting and deadly eras of Himalayan exploration during the 1970s and 80s. In his new book, High Risk, he reflects on the many friends he lost to this deadly game and seeks to hear the wisdom to be learned from these lives lived and lost.
JCPC 122 Ben Moon
Ben Moon pushed climbing to new levels in the 1980s and 90s. He spearheaded sport climbing, training, and bouldering and was the defining image of our sport through his climbs, look and attitude. Hear all about it.
JCPC 121 Dave Bowes
The past 15 years have seen Dave Bowes go on an cosmic journey which began in a terrible motorcycle accident. This led to Dave's brain becoming scrambled and then, through his journey in drugs, becoming unscrambled. Tune in!
JCPC 120 Dave 'Cubby' Cuthbertson
Top Scottish climber od the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Cubby pushed the standards in trad, sport and ice, including the UK's first 8a, with Requiem. The dude. This is hours of fun, this one.
JCPC 119 Jemma Powell
She's only small, but she's great crack. Comp beast, trad-tinkler, climbing coach with lots of horse-power. Join us for a beer and a chat. Turns out she's a better climber than I had realised.
Unlocking the Soul of Ascent
Rock climbing is more art than sport. Niall has committed to long form exploratory interviews with dedicated individuals. He does not capitulate (Sisu! [look it up]) to modern attention spans and conventional pentameter.
These are conversations that are bold, irreverent and honest. Taken as a whole, each interview paints a large scale vibe that Isn’t exactly heard in each word but rather felt through a landscape.
Niall’s genius is hard to pin down. I would say that his podcast casts a net and captures a rareness in modern media.
NAILL GRIMES IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED. He will attempt to hoodwink you with his bumbling intros, improvisational nonsense, and bamboozling shifts in tone and content. These are in fact cooly calculated designs to create the most hilarious, engaging, and thoughtful podcast on the free podcast market. These designs have succeeded. Never miss an episode. You will love it. Thank you Naill, you devious genius.
The Taylor Parsons episode is amazing
One of the most humane and moving interviews I’ve ever listened to. Huge thanks to Taylor for sharing her story with such honesty and openness and to Niall for helping her share it with the world.
