  1. What sport achievement can top his climb of El Cap?
    I think the only thing that could top his climb would be to climb mount Everest nude and solo no ropes etc and take a selfie from the highest point.

  2. Joe comes across not prepared in this podcast, but not too many people in this world know jackshit about free solo anyway. Atleast his podcast gives his audience more info about Alex and his achievements.

  3. I hated watching free solos before, because i thought they were stupid enough to throw away their lives. But after watching Free Solo by Alex now, j have stopped judging these guys. This has to be the most amazing feat ever by a human. Cheers!!!

  4. Aside from his climb of the captain, which is the bravest thing a human has ever done, Alex is a lovely, caring, intelligent, witty, human being, but a cut above the rest

  5. Cross training is good for fitness but not for specific sports. They began studying that with cyclists in the late ‘70s early ‘80s and found year round training was more effective than off season cross training.

  6. It’s important that he states “…that’s at the end of a very long path…” because many don’t realize how intensely dedicated he was, and still is, to climbing. He lived in a van, off of very little, like a hermit, to experience one thing, climbing. Few have that kind of passion or desire.

  7. This is so weird being a cognitive neurpsychologist phd student and listening to then talk about these powders because they have all been shown to be faulty because of all the statistic hacking they did with it. Plus one: you cant eat a neurotransmitter, we dont have the science yet to even make them. Two: even if yoy could eat them, your stomach acid would kill them on impact. There's a reason why are stomach is lined with a base so our stomach acid doesnt kill us.
