Alpinist and filmmaker Graham Zimmerman
1 hr 38 min

Graham Zimmerman is an alpinist, filmmaker and veteran of more than 30 international climbing expeditions. In the summer of 2019, Graham was part of a team that completed the first ascent of Link Sar in the Central Pakistani Karakoram via its Southeast Face. (It was a highly coveted prize; nine unsuccessful attempts had been made throughout the years.) Graham was born in New Zealand, raised in America’s Pacific Northwest, and has become, through his experiences in the great mountain ranges and glacier fields of the world, a leading voice for the climate change organization Protect Our Winters. Hal and Graham talk about how one trains mentally and physically for a brutal ascent like Link Sar, expedition planning, learning whitewater boating on the fly (in anticipation of an expedition where those skills will be a matter of life and death), adventure partnerships, and the work of the brilliant energy expert and economic historian Daniel Yergin.

Stories From The Season - The Mediocre Alaskan with Jeff Lund
This week on the Stories From The Season Series Chad talks to Jeff Lund, host of The Mediocre Alaskan Podcast. Jeff came down to the lower 48 from Alaska to hunt Mule deer with his fiancé in Wyoming this year and this Stories From the Season show is all about their hunt. They spent several days looking for deer and moving to new spots until the both connected with great mule deer on the last day. It’s a great story and Jeff tells it well. Enjoy the show! Stories From The Season was created as a way for us to let our friends share their hunting stories. I love to listen to great hunting stories to get an idea of the experience, but I think there is a lot of great opportunities to learn for other success or failure. When you hear a person talk about a stalk or how they achieved success you can apply the same techniques to your hunting strategies. Enjoy the Series!
