This is the first part of a two part interview with mountaineer Gerardo Lopez. Gerardo started climbing at the age of 12 and since then he has travelled around the world, visiting almost 90 countries and climbing most of highest mountains in America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

His most notable achievement to date has been summiting Mount Everest that he accomplished in 2009 becoming, at the age of 30 only the 26th person from Mexico to do so. Over the next year or two, Gerardo would like to take on K2 in Pakistan and do an unsupported crossing in Antarctica.

We discuss with him his trip to Everest, his summit without supplemental oxygen after an equipment malfunction, his mindset and what it feels like to stand atop the world's highest mountain.

Gerardo is a highly engaging and great guest so we expect you guys to really enjoy this one!

#6 - Sex Drugs & Skydiving With Tommy Siera

This episode is a catch up with Doc's old friend Tommy Siera. Tommy is a basejumper, a skydiver and an all around wild guy. He competes in high level skydiving events and is a skydiving coach for those who want to up the artistic skills in the air.

During this conversation we go way off road. Discussing of course skydiving, basejumper and all the skills involved but we also take a deep look into the psyche of what it takes to live and work in such a dangerous sport.

During the conversation we also dive right into psychedelic drugs which Tommy has dealt with regularly over the years. It's a fantastic insight into that side of life that people don't often hear.

Buyer beware this episode is a wild one. But we really enjoyed it and we think you will too!

This podcast is supported by Atlanta Orchards. Atlanta Orchards are a family run company (Doc's family in fact) and provide quality apples to the state of Victoria, Australia. They would like to promote their new kanzi and greenstar apples. Greenstars, the first 100 per cent non-browning apples are a cross between a granny smith and a delbarestivale apple. The apples are green, sweet, juicy, have a thin skin and have the highest vitamin C content of any apple, which helps keep them naturally white for days after cutting. The kanzi is the number one apple sold in Europe and is bright red and crunchy, with a long shelf life — a cross between a gala and braeburn apple. So ask for Atlanta kanzi and greenstar apples in your local greengrocers Victoria wide.
