The best podcast around

Niall is down to earth, funny, and creative. Listen if you want to be steeped in UK climbing lore. His is original wit, not canned bull. Seems like a great guy to get a pint with.

Confession of a jamcrackhead

I’ve listened to a lot of climbing-related podcasts hosted by witty Irish guidebook authors. And this is the best of the lot. Stop reading reviews and download the thing already.

Must Listen!

Niall is amazing! The only thing that could make this podcast better would be if he spent more time rambling on in the intro. Hilarious, fun, and occasionally deep.
