  1. Hola! I started listening in like 2014 or 2015 or something. But since I’m a little OCD, I wanted to listen to all the episodes in order, so I just caught up with you this week at #267. Thanks for all the great work! I’m going to take your suggestion and finally cough up a ducat for each episode.
    I love the rhythm of your interviews, and appreciate how you have grown as a podcaster and also human in the past decade or so. I’m around your age and started climbing in the late 90s, so I suppose I am predisposed to your POV (certainly to your cultural references). I was never hard core in the scene (far from it), so learning about climbing history from the enormocast has been delightful.
    I look forward to the next 267 episodes!

    1. Wow. Thanks for the powerup, Kristi. And yes, my cultural references are a little dated! Alas, we are what we watched/listened to in our teens and 20s, I’m afraid.

  2. I’m a long time fan and the older I get the more I enjoy these interviews and banter. I think it helps that I’m about the same age as you 😉 Thanks for staying with it so long – I remember your 100th podcast and it was a huge feat but I feel like you seemed reluctant to stay with it even back then. Finally getting my act together to donate to your cause.
    You’ve had some really impressive personalities over the years, but wondering why Robyn Erbesfeld hasn’t made it on? As a former pro climber, still high performing in her 50’s/60’s? and mother of two celebrity climbing kids (coach of several more celebrity athletes), it seems like she might have an interesting story to tell. At least one I’d like to hear…

    1. Thanks for the kind note. A few years ago, I contacted Robin a couple times and got nothing back. I tend to not push too hard. But I should try again. Certainly climbing royalty.

  3. L, O, V, E, this podcast. Planning on writing a 1 star review on iTunes just so you and others can read it and maybe get a laugh. I’ll back it up with a 5 star review afterwards to cancel it out, you know sort of like eating celery after 10 boneless wings. Canceled it out, we’re all good!

    Thanks for following your passion Kalous, you rock!

  4. Howdy Chris,

    Thanks for an awesome podcast! It helped during grad school – especially during long days in the lab (still helps with this). Oh and those long drives to Hueco and such. It’s nice to be entertained while learning things. You rock!

  5. Hi Chris,

    I just wanted to echo what others were saying here – thanks so much for so many consistent episodes of the podcast over the years!!! Keeps the stoke high during the many hours we as climbers spend on the road, and, for me, keeps the stoke high while working in the lab alone.

    Now that COVID has forced you to succumb to virtual interviews, you finally have no excuse to start talking to the Brits! Leo Houlding, James Pearson, Dave MacLeod, Jerry Moffat…the possibilities are endless!

  6. Hey Chris,

    Thanks so much for putting this show on. So many people really appreciate your work. Just donated a few “ducats”. The Enormocast has gotten me through many long car trips. I find your voice particularly soothing when I can’t stand listening to my girlfriends “crime junkies” podcasts any longer.

    Fun story: I was at a cafe in Jackson (Genivive ?) and heard a familiar voice at a table next to me. Sure enough, it was you but I was nervous and didn’t say anything.

    Do you take requests on here? You should get Jim Reynolds and Kevin Cooper on the show!!

    All of my Front Range climbing buddies and I love the show! Keep it up.


    P.S. L.G.S. at Sparks Wall is for sure harder than Zebras and Moonbeams 😉

    1. Jackson Hole? Wasn’t me. Haven’t been there in literally decades. Just some other rakish gentlemen with a soothing voice. I like true crime, but can not stand that one either. The voices and banter are just too much. Kevin Cooper! That guy. Good idea. Not sure Jim would be interested. Pretty reticent dude. But I’ll see about that.

      I don’t know if L.G.S is harder, but neither one is 5.13- in my opinion, but who am I to argue with Peewee.

  7. Hey Chris!
    I just wanted to say I love the pod and it has kept me sane on so many drives to the crag and the ski hill. Started at episode 1 and I am slowly catching up to reality, dreading the day that I am all caught up and have to wait to listen to more. I have learned so much about climbing, its history and its people. Thank you so much! I tried to check out the shop but it seems the link is broken. Oh well! Guess I will just have to donate 🙂 keep up the amazing work and remember to always check to make sure the microphone is working 😉

    1. Thanks! Yeah, the shop has been FUBAR for a while. I need to get it up and running again, but takes more time than its worth sometimes. Thanks for the donation, though. I’ll try to stay ahead of you.

  8. This is the podcast that got me into podcasts. A climbing podcast by a true climber, through and through. Mark Twight was my first episode and now I can’t stop listening. Btw Chris, amazing job on the Twight interview! Hope this continues for all of time!

  9. Dig the show dude! And I second the comment about the hilarious ads. Even slowed down the speed for the belay specs disclaimer to hear it all. Keep up the good work!

  10. Hello Chris! I got to the Enormocast via the Totally Deep podcast. So glad I have so much content to listen to all year long. Keep up the great work! Thanks for sharing so much knowledge.

  11. I hate commercials on podcasts but every time I start up a new episode of the Enormocast I can’t help but listen to the entire thing commercials and all. You do an awesome job on them and I hope you keep them up!

  12. Before I discovered the enormocast I thought Americans were humorless. I was terribly wrong. I’m a big fan of the show! #theenormoworldwide

  13. Have you thought of requesting support via Patreon? It makes it easy for listeners to pony up a few bucks a month without thinking about it.

  14. After a year of Enormocast-induced eargasms during my morning commute, I finally ponied up for a T-shirt. So stoked to sport some love at the local gym and crags! I feel like the guy in your Belay Specs add every time I talk to other SoCal climbers about the Enormocast, so I’m trying to spread the exposure in the hopes that someday the humble trickle of passive income dribbling from your enormo-efforts will finally amount to a sum large enough to pay for the enormo-baby’s first tiny pair of La Sportiva Stickits!

    1. Luckily, they will give those to me for free (I hope). But thanks for the spray. Its cocky, but I’m starting to get a little insulted when I talk to a climber that has never heard of the podcast. I though world domination was imminent. Alas.

      1. I 2nd the Fred Beckey request. I’d be stoked to hear some scary 1st ascent stories from the legend!

        I sincerely appreciate all of the effort you put into the enormocast 🙂

  15. We love the Enormocast and the humor and intelligence you bring to the climbing conversation. Not sure how we’d make our weekend warrior drives up and down Hwy 395 to Lone Pine, Bishop, and Mammoth without your podcasts. I’m about to make a donation to your worthy cause and am hoping you can send us a couple of bumper stickers (do you still have those?), so we can advertise your cause here in bustling Tehachapi, Calif., where there are rumors that there is at least one other climber!

    Thanks from Jodi and Scott–the Alabama Hills Gang
