Episode 120: Kris Hampton, Miguel and Dario Ventura – Life Imitates Art [REBROADCAST]

On Episode 120, the Enormocast REBROADCASTS Kris Hampton’s interview with Miguel and Dario Ventura of the infamous and beloved Miguels Pizza in the Red River Gorge. Kris reached out with this interview because though he posted it over at his podcast, The Power Company Podcast, he thought it had just the right feel for an Enormocast. And since the holidays had made me fat and lazy, I said, “Sure!”. Besides, his access and friendship with Miguel resulted in an awesome, intimate interview that The Enormocast may not have been able to get. Miguel, and now his son Dario, have been slinging pizzas and offering a home away from home for climbers since before the Red was a thing. But the deeper conversation reveals and artist and a man whose satisfaction comes from his family, both immediate, and the climbing family that has surrounded Miguels from the very beginning. Please thank Kris by checking out his page, powercompanyclimbing.com, in return for sharing this fine interview with one of climbing’s pillars.

Episode 38: Kris Odub Hampton learns that falling is floating.

75607_464438823497_161448_nOn Episode 38 of the Enormocast, I eek out one more closet interview with Cincinnati rapper/climber/artist Kris Odub Hampton. Kris is an interesting character who traveled an unusual path to climbing from the mean streets of Cinci. His provocative climbing rap songs have drawn admirers and haters alike. But we also see the soft side of the man as he talks about his own mentors and inspirations. Don’t worry, if this interview sucks, we’ll hear about it on his next song.
