This podcast is awesome!
At first I thought this was going to bum me out and make it seem sketchy to adventure, but it had the opposite effect. I learn so Much from this podcast from other people’s mistakes and misfortune. This is a great resource and often the best lessons learned are through hardships, this podcast is full of them. Keep up the great work and thank you so much to yourself for making it and the guests for sharing with us! Stay safe!
Such a great way to learn through storytelling and be supported in using the caution we ought to when trying big things outdoors. I hope this podcast never saves my life - but it might.
Excellent if you don’t climb
I’m not a climber. But if you have an interest in wilderness medicine, SAR or just spend a lot of time in the backcountry, this podcast is full of interesting and educational information.
