A great add to my day.

Thom Pollard does a great job of bringing his guests to life. I always learn and laugh. Some times cry. And am often inspired to act.

TDP and the Zen of the podcast.

I love listening to Thom Pollard. No matter the guest, no matter the content, TDP is an easygoing and engaging host. I first met Thom, along with Mark Synnott and Rick Wilcox, at a speaking event in North Conway, NH celebrating their respective expeditions to the top of Mt. Everest. I am a fan of all three men, and was super happy when Thom launched his podcast. It's great to have a steady stream of content from such an interesting and genuine person. I've also been fortunate enough to photograph Thom on 2 different occasions as well, and found him a truly joyful and kind human as well as an excellent subject. Thanks for the podcast, Thom! Love your work!
