    Episode 13 - Q&A

    Our last podcast was February 2020, and so we decided to get together and host a live recording in July 2022. No doubt due to short notice and the timezones, we didn't have a huge turnout (or tunein), but thanks to the handful of people who did, and especially Jared who joined us on the call to ask his question. If you like this format, let us know and we can try and schedule another (within 2 years).

Alpinist Couple2 ,

Absolutely life-changing

I can’t believe I’m just discovering this now! Almost done binging all of the shows. Love the format, love the banter, love the mix of science background info with practical takeaways. I am a vegetarian Alpinist (long-endurance plus long-duration technical climbing), and as such I feel like I need to read between the lines on some of the topics, since this show (like all climbing podcasts) really cater to the pure technical climber who has virtually no need for cardiovascular fitness.
Growing up with zero athletic background (mostly just playing music), it’s great that Tom and Brian approach each topic to level-set the basics (whether you are misinformed or uninformed). This podcast has changed my life, and I will come back to it over and over. Thank you Tom and Brian for sharing your knowledge!!

Game changer!

Late to the party here but this podcast is like free nutrition coaching for climbers with all the research studies to back up what they’re saying. Much more convincing when all the mechanisms at work are explained than just Instagram posts. I like the 2 hour long episodes! Not sure why they stopped recording 🤷‍♀️ would love episodes about vegan / vegetarian diets, women’s nutrition, etc
