On Episode 100 of the Enormocast, I get a little help from my friends to celebrate my entire catalog – 100! YEAH, DAWG! – and we then get down to an epic convo with man of the hour, and climber of the ages, Tommy Caldwell. Tommy talks inspiration, professionalism, and the ups and downs of life in the spotlight. He gets down to brass tacks about the Dawn Wall, and all it has meant to him professionally and personally. We also run down a series of equally amazing feats that nobody but us climbers noticed, including putting up two of the other hardest big walls in the world . Now that he’s super famous among the non-climbing civies, Tommy’s future is unknown, but he likes it that way.
On Episode 83 of the Enormocast, I sit down in front of a live audience at Bonfire Coffee in Carbondale, CO during the 5Point Film Festival with Hayden Kennedy, Andrew Bisharat, and Brenden Leonard. We discuss the mainstream media’s sudden love affair with rock climbing, social media, the internet and whether climbing has lost its soul. Turns out that cappuccino driven spray is just as frothy as the booze driven kind.
