The best climbing podcasts, from Factor Two

Climbing podcasts from Factor Two

Cinema for the Ear

At Factor Two we like to to tell climbing stories a little differently. Every episode of our podcasts is a little piece of cinema for your ears. We tell the big stories, with big characters, but we’re also interested in the minutiae of the climbing world and the people that are a part of it.

We’ve told stories about grief and joy, speed records and rescues, identity and losing yourself, and it’s all led us back to basics with our new series.

In Ideas That Changed Climbing we’re telling the story of how climbing became the sport it is today, one idea at a time.

The Royal We

You might have noticed that all the way through the site I’m talking about “We”.

UKClimbing have been kind enough to support Factor Two from the beginning, but behind the episodes there’s just little old me. I’d love for that not to be the case in the future.

If you’re a creator who would like to be involved I’d love to hear from you. It’s my hope that in the future I’ll be able to commission other writers to work on episodes to give us more variety in the stories on offer and how we tell them. I’d also love to commission artwork to accompany our episodes, and bespoke music would be amazing too.

I’m not a creator, how can I help?

If you like the work I do here why not buy me a coffee? It’ll help me to keep telling more great stories.

You can also share my work on social media, suggest future stories or offer some feedback on what you’d like to see in the future.
