Because lots of things can happen in a lifetime, this podcast will dive deep into all of those ugly, awful things that we all have to go through. We tend to avoid the sad stuff, the awkward conversations, the uncomfortable topics—but what happens when we talk openly about pain and weave it into a story is really powerful.

For the Love of Climbing started as a personal blog in 2014 and now it’s a podcast (for your ears!) With the first full season under our belt, we want to keep moving forward with relatable content for our listeners as we prepare to launch season two.

So, here’s the skinny:

We need help AKA chedda, cold hard cash, we ain’t talking about no fifty dollars, bling, bens (and I promise not to spend it all on doughnuts and whiskey…but just to be honest, like $50 of this will definitely go towards whiskey.) It costs around $1,000 to produce each episode. Expenditure is a pretty big word (AKA what I will buy with your cash other than the $50 for the whiskey as previously mentioned).

This Patreon helps me to cover the cost of time, studio rentals, travel, equipment, editing, and writing. This podcast is a one-woman team and your support is what allows me to continue creating episodes that remind us that we are really just shining examples of this messy human existence.

(Also, just that stipend for the whiskey. I promise.)

THIS IS NOT A CLIMBING PODCAST. Well, sorta. This is a (somewhat uncomfortable) podcast about choosing vulnerability and talking about our pain. It’s not a climbing podcast. But it is. So millennial.
