Are you afraid of heights? Have you ever wondered why some people love mountain climbing in extreme conditions? Caspar speaks to 29 year old Josh Worley about The Vertical Year: his mission to spend 12 months climbing mountains around the world while raising $100,000 for mental health and environmental charities. Josh explains how climbing helps him confront fear and anxiety and break the monotony of everyday life. He hopes he can share these benefits with others by using his climbing to raise money for Reach Out and The Climate Council. You can read Josh's regular column at Zen and the Art of Climbing, or follow his exploits (and donate) at the Vertical Year website, on Instagram or on Facebook. This episode was produced by Nina Roxburgh and features music by Big Gigantic.
Hello Good People of Binge Thinking!
In our latest episode, Caspar brings you the Binge Thinking of 30 year-old engineer and small business owner Dan Barwick. You might not think you can run a business, but Dan explains how getting sick of working for out of touch boomers inspired him to work for himself, make some serious coin, and reshape his own sense of self. With his company Hydraulic Testing and Certification (HTC), Dan talks innovation and creativity even in the drier of topics, you'll be hooked on his every word.
Dan and Caspar also got deep and binged on growing up in a religious family, the wonders of the internet and connected nature of the world as we know it, the future of capitalism, what it means to be human, and the idea of AI. It's a long episode, but we think it's totally worth it!
