Learning to Fly Posted on 11.18.2010 by greg.kuchyt

We return to a podcast format for this post. I couldn’t sleep this morning, so, here’s what happens.

I originally wrote this in August, but I sat on it for a long time. I felt like it wasn’t a good story, not worth sharing. I blew the dust off of it a few days ago and showed it to a couple friends who encouraged me to do it up, so here it is. It’s not as good as I would like, but for an hour’s work of “producing” it’ll do.

As a post-script of sorts. I went on to finish the season out strong. Still afraid to fall, but able to manage the fear of it. I on-sighted a few 10as, a 10b, and had a one-hang rest on a 10c on a 40° day so I could warm my hands up. Progress.

Today’s music is from Janelle Monae’s new album The Arch Android and it’s the track Tightrope (ft. Big Boi).

[PODCAST] Win Some, Lose Some Posted on 05.30.2010 by greg.kuchyt

This past week was pretty rough for me, I’ve been dealing with a bunch of stuff and it’s been forcing me to be introspective. That’s not a bad thing, just exhausting after a while. I’ve needed some creative outlet for all this or face a meltdown. Lately I’ve been listening to the Dirtbag Diaries and I’ve become a big fan. So, in shameless “imitation is the best compliment” fashion, I’m trying my own hand at writing and producing my own podcast entries. So far, I enjoyed working on this…so I imagine I’ll make some posts podcasts from time to time when I feel like they would benefit from being presented in that medium.

This cast deals with Matt and I getting shutdown before we even got off the ground on a climb we set out to do yesterday. Part of my awesome week involved me messing up plans to climb for four days straight. In the post I talk about how my week led me to want to do something bigger than the typical cragging. It’s been a while since Matt and I threw ourselves at something in the backcountry and that’s mainly my fault. I talk about that a little bit as well. Well, it wasn’t in the cards though. So instead we had to find meaning in the day elsewhere, and I think we finally settled on the lesson for the day. I hope this is enjoyable, I know it’s not 100% perfect but for the short turnaround time and my first shot I don’t think it’s too awful.

Oh, apologies for the low volume…you’ll probably have to crank it to hear the cast. I need to up the input level next time, so I had to cut everything down to the quiet vocal tracks and I can’t really make it any louder without distorting the audio.


Music: Bigdro & Zinndeadly Ft. Mystic – Choose One; Substantial – Day in the Life; The Album Leaf – Redeye; Method Man – Win Some, Lose Some
