    Ep. 676: Climbing 8,000-Meter Peaks in Winter - Bernadette McDonald

    Ep. 676: Climbing 8,000-Meter Peaks in Winter - Bernadette McDonald

    After growing up on a farm in Saskatchewan, Bernadette got the taste of mountain living on a family trip to Banff, Alberta. She was so awestruck by the Canadian Rockies that she eventually moved there and worked at the Banff Centre, directing the Banff Mountain Festivals and starting a new division – Mountain Culture at The Banff Centre.

    After 20 years of volunteering at the Banff Film Festival, she began getting involved in book projects through the Centre and eventually starting writing books about mountaineering history.

    Today’s episode features a discussion about Bearnadette’s latest book, Winter 8000: Climbing the World’s Highest Mountains in the Coldest Season. It’s a harrowing tale of the history of winter ascents and what challenges are left to face in the world of 8,000-meter climbing!

    Ep. 674: Halfway Point Update of Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike - Alex “Armadillo” Dyson

    Ep. 674: Halfway Point Update of Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike - Alex “Armadillo” Dyson

    Today we have Alex “Armadillo” Dyson give us his halfway point update from the Appalachian Trail.  His original plan was to leave much earlier in the spring, but I think we all understand why that wasn’t as doable.

    He’s joining us near Harper’s Ferry, recognized as the symbolic halfway point of the trail. He actually called us from a mountaintop after a long day on the trail. You’ll hear the wind, birds, and even a train in the background during the call. Talk about a mid-adventure interview!

    Follow Alex for the rest of his journey on Instagram. He posts some incredible shots!
