Episode 35: Tanner Wilson is a Not So Average Joe

00:0000:00

Tanner Wilson is a 22 year old climber from the middle of Ohio who just went on his first extended road trip of over 5 weeks.  Originally he had planned on one big goal, but just before the trip he made a mature decision and changed his mind about what he wanted to accomplish.  Because of the new goals, Tanner learned several important lessons... ones that take most of us many trips and seasons to absorb.

Episode 34: What is Success with Dave Chancellor and Yusuf Daneshyar (Live at Climb So iLL)

00:0000:00

Our very first live in front of an audience, live streaming on facebook recording!  With the number of things that could have gone wrong, this went REALLY well.  We talk with Dave Chancellor of the famous So iLL brothers, and Yusuf Daneshyar, co owner of the Climb So iLL gym in St. Louis about how we all define success and the different paths we took to get there.  

Thanks to Climb So iLL for having us out and making us feel like family, and thanks to the whole St. Louis community who welcomes us every time with open arms and delicious tacos.  We'll be back.

Episode 33: Board Meetings | Top 2 Sources of Information

00:0000:00

Why only 2?  Because there are 4 of us in this episode!  The whole team sits down for our first Board Meeting together, and discusses the top 2 places where we each get our information.  The internets are full of bullshit information, so it's hard to know when what you're reading has any sort of integrity or validity.  We break it down the way we do, with lots of laughs in between, and let you know where we look to first for the information we believe in.

Episode 32: Ego, Partnerships, and Awareness with Justen Sjong

00:0000:00

Justen doesn't need an introduction, but if you've been hiding under a rock, he's an accomplished climber and coach who has worked with a veritable who's who of American climbing elite.  Justen is known for his ability to get into a climbers head and coax more out of them.  I wanted to give you something different, so we don't necessarily dig into those things that you might hear about in his conversations with other climbing podcasts, like Chalk Talk (which you should listen to if you haven't.).  Instead, we dig into ego (the good and the bad), partnerships and how they can be affected by ego, and how awareness can offset the negatives.  

You can find Justen at www.climbingsensei.com

Episode 31: Devils Advocate | The Moon Board (featuring Ben Moon)

00:0000:00

It's here.  The one you've been waiting for.  The Moon Board Episode.  And that's not all.  We recorded the conversation, sent it to Ben Moon, and then Skyped him in to get his opinions.  Legend.  

The facts, the myths, what you're doing right, and where you're going wrong.  

Is the Moon Board the best training tool out there?  Listen and decide for yourselves.  Then stop clogging my instagram feed, and get off my lawn ya damn kids!

Episode 30: If It Ain’t Broke, Fix It Anyway with Jonathan Siegrist

00:0000:00

JStar is one of the best sport climbers in the world, so it took a ton of courage for him to completely overhaul a training routine that took him to 14d (9a), but he did it anyway.  We talk about the how and the why, what he learned from it, and where he's going from here.  

You can find Jonathan at http://www.jstarinorbit.com, where he keeps what is likely the best blog in all of climbing.  Definitely go check out his recent posts on Pachamama, a 15a that after 8 weeks of effort, he had to walk away from.

Episode 29: Skin Care with Rhino Skin Solutions

00:0000:00

Skin Care.  You're probably not doing it right.  Even if you are, there is much to learn from this podversation with Justin and Andi Brown from Rhino Skin Solutions.  We talk skin types, how to use each of their individual products (and how not to), and how and why they work.  

These products have been a game changer for me, and I believe that they can be for you as well.  Rhino is giving our listeners a 15% off discount (expires March 31) on their products.  Just use the code PowerCompany at checkout.  All one word, capital P and capital C.  

Rhino also asked us to create a Power Company Performance Pack, which we were happy to do.  Nate and I have different types of skin, so we created a sampler pack of sorts that will allow you to find out which products work best for you and your skin type.  We get a small kickback when you buy the Performance Pack, so if you want to help support the podcast, this is a good way to do it!  You can find the Power Company Performance Pack HERE.

Episode 28: Community and Fleeting Youth with Cody Roth

00:0000:00

This an extremely rare "catch and release" episode.  Nate and I were in Austin for a workshop at Crux Climbing Center, and I saw the news that Cody Roth had completed the FA of "Me I Eat Dust", which at 14+ is the hardest sport climb in Texas.  However, it was his comments about the idea that while he isn't in the shape he was in his 20's, he's climbing better, that got me interested.  I hit Cody up on the Facebooks, and a couple of hours later we had this recording.  Brilliant, this community is.  

In other news, we reached the $100 per month mark, thanks to our amazing Patrons!  You guys are the best!  All of you can thank them for the fact that starting now, you get 3 episodes per month.  I'm glad we got there because I've got TONS of these podversations to put out into the intrawebs.  

You've all been asking about Devils Advocate #1... the Moon Board episode.  It's coming.  We've got some surprises in store, so we're taking our time.  It'll be worth the wait.  

Ok.  I'll be talking to you guys again very soon.  Why?  3 episodes this month, that's why.  BOOM.

Episode 27: Why Form Matters with Paul Corsaro

00:0000:00

I know, I know.  You're getting antsy.  Me too.  Thing is, I've been bouldering.  Alot.  And honestly, I'm still on schedule, so there.  Unless you guys push us to our $100 per month goal at our Patreon page, and then you'll get 3 each month, which means more work for me, and more utter happiness for you.

But hold off on your dismay... today we're talking to our Strength and Conditioning Coach, Paul Corsaro, about a topic that is extremely important to all of us.... Why Form Matters.  Whether it be strength training, climbing, or just sitting at a desk chair.  Regardless of what you're doing, form matters.  

Paul is one of the best coaches I've ever had the pleasure to work with, and we're fortunate to have him on the team.  You can check out more of what Paul does at www.cruxconditioning.com.  

Check out the ebook Paul coauthored for us, Kettlebells for Climbers

Soon you'll be able to work with Paul through our app for Strength and Conditioning Plans.  You'll hear more about that soon!

Episode 26: Meghan Baker is a Not So Average Jane

00:0000:00

Meghan Baker is a recently married 43 year old mom (to a teenager), who works 50 hours a week, is a brilliant actress in local theater groups, volunteers her time to both The Beta Fund and The HERA Foundation, and still makes time to train for climbing.  We talk through why she sought out coaching, the challenges and benefits of her lifestyle, and what we've focused on for the first year of her training.  You think you are tight on time?  You're full of shit.
