The best

The climbing podcast to measure all other climbing podcasts against. Kalous you have been and continue to do an excellent job. Been listening since maybe the 30’s and no signs of slowing! Keep ‘em coming please!

Best podcast ever

I don’t know if you’ve ever asked for a review but you’re getting one. I’ve listened to every episode of this podcast in the last year since getting into climbing and have to say this is one of the best interview shows on the Internets. Thank you so much for making this podcast and finding the most interesting people to talk with.

Has changed climbing culture for the better

When I first started it seemed everyone was a sandbagging curmudgeon. Thanks to a new influx of sharing and inclusiveness we can all come to understand our community and climb harder too. This podcast is part of that trend, maybe even one of the driving forces, so I’m pretty psyched on it. Check your knot. :)
