Episode 121: Christopher Parker – Went Down To The Crossroads. - The Enormocast: a climbing podcast
< 1 day ago
On Episode 121 of the Enormocast, I sit down with friend, musician, and former band-mate, Chris Parker. Chris and I discuss his ambitions with both music and climbing, and why its so tough to be addicted to both. His mission in life is to reconcile the all-consuming passion for climbing with the discipline and demands of musicianship. Right now, climbing is king, but if that slick agent showed up and dangled a contract and a tour? Who knows? We also debate whether climbing art exists as its own movement. Finally, most importantly, Chris plays us four of his own tunes.

Kalous has created not just a good climbing podcast, but in total - just great radio! I am consistently impressed with how he is able to seamlessly ask probing, far-reaching questions of his guests that go beyond climbing into the underlying aspects of life. He never misses a beat and is very natural on air - nothing sounds rehearsed or overly produced. He is extremely talented in a way that only becomes apparent in contrast to other shows - in general this show feels like eavesdropping on just a great conversation by the bonfire or in the coffee shop. Highlights include Tommy Caldwell, Angie Payne, Kelly Cortes and Honnold of course, but the best shows IMO are with Craig Demartino and Kevin Landolt. The Landolt show transcends podcast status - it's beyond moving.
