Great resources

As a relatively new climber, I find this podcast to be tremendous. It keeps me grounded as I continue to push my bounds in the mountains, and helps me to remember that safety is ultimately my responsibility. I appreciate the honesty and truth of the guests and the depth of questions in the interviews. Great work Ashley!

Gripping and Educational

I am obsessed with this podcast. Each episode focuses on a different mountaineering accident, usually told by the victim. The host, Ashley Saupe, keeps things from being merely sensational and voyeuristic by guiding the discussion around learning from mistakes made, safety best practices, and how to deal with the aftermath of a traumatic experience. Nevertheless, each episode is truly gripping.
