Episode 134: Graham Zimmerman – Both Sides of the Lens. - The Enormocast: a climbing podcast
7 days ago
On Episode 134, I sit down with alpinist and filmmaker, Graham Zimmerman. Graham has found the magic mix of working in the outdoor industry and still getting to go on trip after trip to the high alpine. The secret is working both sides of the lens as a crack mountaineer and a dedicated film auteur. Despite his relatively young age, Graham imparts sage advice on how to get into making outdoor films and how to live, love, and learn in the big mountains, and he’s learned from the best, like recent Enormocast guest, Steve Swenson. And while he is as serious about climbing as an Olde E shortage in Camp 4, Graham can still laugh at our idiotic sport.
Above the Fray
Engaging the Curve
Rated 5 out of
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.
