About This Show
The MTNmeister podcast presents interviews with the most inspiring, motivating, and influential athletes in outdoor sports. In a half hour, you’ll explore topics which transcend sport: overcoming adversity, stepping outside of your comfort zone, persevering through hardship, weighing risk vs. reward, and more. MTNmeister delivers extreme examples of these topics through the guests we host: mountaineers, ultramarathoners, Paralympians, Olympians, rock climbers, skiers, and more. Join the host of MTNmeister, Ben Schenck, as he asks thought provoking questions that you won’t hear on a typical interview. Also, every MTNmeister will recommend the best gear, resources, and destinations that will assist you in your own adventures.
