S2: E8 Barry Blanchard

EIn our 8th and final episode of season two … we sit down with Barry Blanchard, one of the most bold and accomplished alpine climbers the world has ever seen. Blanchard is best known for his dangerous, cutting-edge ascents on high alpine faces across the globe. Many of Barry’s first ascents were well before their time and have consequently become test pieces for generations following in his footsteps. Most notably, these include the first ascent of Infinite Patience on the Emperor Face of Mt. Robson, the first ascent of the North Pillar of North Twin, a first ascent on the North Face of Les Droites, and a heroic attempt on the 15,000-foot Rupal Face on Nanga Parbat. He is perhaps most well known for outrageous alpine climbing feats with partners Mark Twight, Steve House, David Cheeseman and Scott Backes. The “brotherhood” as they are often referred to, actively challenged death on bold and cold alpine faces in what can only be considered a golden era of alpine climbing. We talk a...

S2:E7 Chris Burkard

EIn episode seven we sit down with the most iconic and recognizable adventure photographer alive today, Chris Burkard. Burkard is known for traveling to the farthest expanses of the Earth, while working to capture stories that inspire humans to consider their relationship with nature. He also works diligently to promote the preservation of wild places everywhere. Layered by outdoor, travel, adventure, surf and lifestyle subjects, Burkard is known for images that are punctuated by untamed, powerful landscapes. His work is stunningly beautiful and remarkably inspiring. Burkard’s images are so powerful they cause the viewer to question their meaning in the world. In our chat, Burkard speaks transparently and honestly about: How there are no shortcuts to joy in life …. and that anything worth pursuing requires suffering; the morality of his faith and the difference between religion and spirituality; as a creative person, his quest for validation through work; how his family is the best...

S2:E6 Kim Havell

EWe return in episode six with Kim Havell, one of the most accomplished ski mountaineers of the last 25 years. Havell has skied on all seven continents, with first descents on four, and has adventured in over 50 countries. During her travels, Kim has climbed and skied big peaks in the Himalaya, Andes, Karakoram and the Americas. Perhaps most impressively, Havell insight skied the Grand Teton, one of the most coveted ski descents in the United States. She also has numerous first female descents across the western United States, including Wyoming’s notorious Otterbody on the Grand Teton. In 2014 Havell became the first woman to ski-guide the Grand Teton, for which Outside Magazine named her the “preeminent female ski mountaineer of our time.” In our chat, Kim talks openly and sincerely about how she balances being a professional athlete and a mother, how humility is the single most important lesson the mountains have taught her, how she coped with losing eight friends in a single ye...

S2:E5 Stephan Drake

EIn episode 5 we enter the white room for a deep dive with Stephan Drake, the founder of DPS Skis. Drake epitomizes the definition of a soul skier and has spent his entire life roaming the globe in search of deep snow. While most skiers think of the pursuit as a sport, Drake considers it an art that is constantly evolving and being perfected. He is a modern day powder surfing samurai with a total devotion to the craft. Drake’s dogmatic pursuit of the perfect powder experience lies at the core of his existence. The result has been some of the most revolutionary ski shapes and technology the world has ever seen. Drake leads the technology and design initiatives behind DPS Skis, the most revolutionary ski company of the last 15 years. In a parallel evolution with the powder surfing ideas of Shane McConkey, Drake is responsible for the creation of rocker in powder skis, the first prepress carbon fiber sandwich skis and the fusion of space-age carbon in groundbreaking shapes. The result ...

S2:E4 Emily Harrington

EIn episode four of Afterglow, we sit down with Emily Harrington, one of the most accomplished all around rock and mountain climbers of the last 25 years. Our conversation provides a revealing glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the most badass women alive. Not only has Emily climbed some of the hardest 5.14a sport climbs in the world, she’s one of only a few athletes to have free climbed Golden Gate, a 5.13b route on Yosemite’s iconic El Capitan. She has also summited Mt. Everest, been a five-time US National Sport Climbing Champion and been victorious at the Ouray Ice Climbing Festival.

S2:E3 Adrian Ballinger

EWe return in episode 3 with notable high altitude climber Adrian Ballinger, one of America's most accomplished mountaineers. Besides being the only American to ski two 8000-meter peaks in one day, Adrian holds the first ski descent of Manaslu, the 8th tallest peak in the world. He has also summited Mt. Everest six times, the most recent without supplemental oxygen. He is also the owner of Alpenglow Expeditions, arguably the premier guiding outfit in North America, and calls Squaw Valley, California home. Our very first Afterglow conversation featured Adrian along with Mt. Everest climbing partner Corey Richards. If you haven't listened to this conversation it might help you contextually for many of the topics contained in Adrian's second sit down. At the time of our first recording, Richards and Ballinger had just returned from a 2016 oxygen-less attempt on Mt. Everest. Both climbers spoke openly about the trials and tribulations of their journey to the roof of the world. On the 201...

S2:E2 JT Holmes

EJT Holmes is a world-class professional skier and aerial athlete. Holmes grew up on the slopes of Squaw Valley and as a 15-year-old fell in with freeskiing legend Shane McConkey. McConkey taught Holmes that existence as a professional skier was a possibility .... and that anything was possible in life. Holmes has never turned back. A tremendously focused person, Holmes knew from a young age that he always wanted to be a professional skier. This passion has never faded and sits at the core of his existence. While skiing has always been his first love, his career has been a boundless exercise in the possibilities of gravity-fed passions. Skiing led to base jumping, which led to ski base jumping and in recent years, speed flying. A Red Bull and GoPro athlete, Holmes is a pioneer in freeskiing and high-flying aerial pursuits. Beyond his pursuit of these gravity-fed sports, Holmes has carved out a role as a Hollywood stuntman, with highly-acclaimed aerial work in Transformers 3, Hangover...
