Every episode is a little piece of cinema for the ear. They take a deep dive into the stories, ideas, and people in our communities.

Whether you want to know what it’s like to climb The Nose on El Capitan in just Nine and a Half Hours, how flow states can be used to maximise your climbing performance, or if you want to hear the weird tale of one of the greatest climbing films ever made.
