Great, still watching. Go watch the UFC Honnold. I'm a prude so I don't know what to say about the porn stars..

Maybe Everest is a hike with consequenses.

It was interesting. I watched the first 50 minutes or so, hope to watch the rest later.

A favorite:

"(To the kids:) Do what you're drawn to… Whatever you're drawn to, go to that. (To Alex H:) What you do would make me sh#t my pants every day of the week. I have no desire. I don't ever look at mountains and go, Fuk, I need to climb that sh#t. Never. It's not in me. It doesn't appeal to me…. I'm so not into that. But I love the fact that you are. You know, I love the fact that people are so different. Whatever it is. Ones and zeros inside of your system make you look at a tree and want to fuking climb it. I don't know what it is, but it's awesome. It's shocking and it's weird but it's awesome."

Nice to hear these guys liked the film, Kick Ass, too. Because it was so out there, me too. :)

Alex didn't know about Rogan's Fear Factor show. Rogan explained what got it cancelled in the U.S.

I think Alex and his family made a good call not having a TV while growing up. That is frigging gross. Belly full of donkey jizz for $50,000. No thanks.

I didn't like the interviewer, and wouldn't like to be memorialized on the internet by him.

Since Rogan didn't know anything about Alex's world, and Alex didn't know anything about Rogan's world, the discussion was exciting for both of them.

I enjoined the show very much!

Pretty blown away by this. Usually Honnold is a boring interview with a clueless and unable to understand interviewer. This case was awesome because you not only got to hear the standard fare, but also got to see deeper insight into the person and see him goofing around a bit. Very good interview/podcast

Last half of the interview sounded like a live version of some of the ST threads around here...pretty wild and all over the place. Extremely interesting.

Best line of the interview is for sure "When your life depends on it, no one wants to use hemp"

If you know much about Joe Rogan you know why this is funny. He is a huge proponent of smoking pot and the use of hemp in general.

He can be pretty out there, but for sure is an extremely intelligent person.

This interview is a strange mixing of worlds to me because Alex and Joe each represent the two major pursuits of my life. Climbing and MMA / Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (That's what my handle stands for: BJJ), each of which I have been passionately involved in for at least a decade each.

I keep thinking about this interview.

Rogan’s world of people fighting in a cage, porn stars in Vegas, TV shows, grizzlies eating people in Yosemite… Grotesque.

And Alex’s world of mountains, travel, appreciation of the nature… He seemed, hm innocent.

Funny sh#t. Definitely better than the average climbing interview. It's always funny hearing someone try to explain climbing, without using climbing terms to someone who hasn't the slightest clue about climbing. The climbing part of the interview was the most boring too.
