G.O. 008 - Chris Kalous Continues With Style

If you are a climber, it is likely you have heard of the Enormocast, the preeminent climbing podcast. For four years, Chris Kalous has interviewed climbers from around the world and shared them with the internet. Chris is not merely a podcaster, he is also an accomplished climber and journalist capable of inciting intense rage from over-serious aid climbers. Chris allowed Jason into his hotel room at the Outdoor Retailer Show where they discussed how climbing has shaped his life and why he became a podcaster. They may have even unintentionally insulted golfers and football players along the way.

G.O. 005 - Dirtbagging with Nhung Luong

Nhung Luong is scared of bears, but not of traveling the world solo. Her global travels began as a newborn when her family struggled to escape persecution in Vietnam, ultimately finding a new home in Australia. Recently she threw herself into a three-month nomadic adventure across the united States letting fate and circumstance decide her course. Much of her trip has involved climbing throughout the states and adopting the dirtbag lifestyle. Although traveling solo, she has spent very little time alone having acquired new friends from across the globe. She and Jason initially met climbing in Nevada and reunited in Yosemite’s Camp 4 to discuss how her wanderings have affected her perspective on life.
