Pressure. No matter if it's a comp, a project outdoors, self inflicted or external, we all feel it. In these 3 episodes I sit down with good friend Angie Payne and discuss the pressure cooker situation of a World Cup comp.
A few weeks ago Angie and I attended the Vail World Cup, and while I ambushed competitors with my microphone, Angie, a former competitor, captured in photos the emotions that this sort of intense pressure creates. Then we sat down and discussed it all. Her photos, the comments from competitors, and our own experience.
You'll hear comments from several of today's top competitors, including Alex Puccio, Shauna Coxsey, Janja Garnbret, Jan Hojer, and more, and not only can you hear their take on it, but you can SEE their emotion in the photos for each episode.
While you listen, flip through the photos to see exactly what we we're discussing. The photos are all time stamped so that you can follow along with us. If you plan on listening in the podcast app on your pocket super computer, you can click on a link in the podcast description to go directly to the gallery for that episode. Enjoy, and let us know what you think of this format.
