Not just training - Best climber interviews too
This podcast is interview-based with a focus on training, but is filled with fascinating information on the lives of adventure of professional climbers. This show is filled with world class guests. They share some deeply personal information about themselves and provide invaluable advice for other climbers.
The host is extremely well prepared. She asks relevant questions, specific questions that go deep. She channels her inner Terry Gross and asks hard questions, even uncomfortable ones, but in a way that doesn't seem too offensive. This makes a one hour interview fly by.
This podcast is for all climbers. Beginners who want to improve their training methods, advanced climbers who want to improve their mental game, and just anyone who is interested in the world of professional climbing athletes.
