Enormocast 245: James Lucas – Peaches en Ragalia

On Episode 245, James Lucas and I reconvene to catch up on his topsy-turvy life. This installment, his 4th, finds James on the upswing from a low point after losing his job, his girlfriend, his stoke, and purpose. James talks about losing himself in dance, home remedies for panic attacks, therapy, and general depression. But by the end, he’s back on the upswing and we discuss some dubious dating advice administered by one Madeleine Sorkin. James is probably the most forthcoming and honest guest to ever grace the Enormocast, and its always a joyride when he hits the mic!

Episode 166: James Lucas – A Recipe for Success.

Right and Bottom: Dean Fidelman

On Episode 166 of the Enormocast, fan-favorite James Lucas returns! The intervening years since James’ most recent previous show and first appearance on the Enormocast have sobered the pie-baking-dirtbag into a contributing member of society. Now in Boulder at Climbing Magazine and happily dating pro-climber Nina Williams, our former redpoint-soloist and reluctant spokes-person for the road dawgs finds himself stationary, gainfully-employed, performance-driven, and frankly, happier than he’s ever been – or so he says.

On Episode 92 of the Enormocast, I reunite with a Enormo-favorite James Lucas. He left his Saturn behind, went to Spain, and climbed the Freerider in a day, all since we last heard from him in Episode 47. James continues to lead the dirtbag life, bouncing from Yosemite, to Salt Lake, and around the world. Some call him the last American Dirtbag, some call him the last Stonemaster, some just call him Peaches, but nobody doesn’t smile when JL shows up.
