Just started listening and I realized this pod only has one story about Everest that was made in 2016. I think this pod has a lot of promise, but it doesn’t appear that it will be coming back. Still worth the listen if you are interested in climbing Everest (basecamp), which is what I plan to do in a few years. Great content!
This is one of the most enjoyable and enlightening podcasts I’ve heard in years. With an experienced and passionate host, engaging guests and compelling content, this one is at the top of my favorites list. The 3 part series on Everest is thought-provoking and full of emotion and tension; I absolutely had to hear more and found the website content just as satisfying. Well done!
Great podcast for lovers of the outdoors. Very well produced and I really enjoy the stories - they're very inspiring. Keep up the great work!
