    ok, the banter thread got me thinking...
    let’s list favourite podcasts in the ski/skin/outdoor/climb/etc category.

    I use iTunes but figure any popular ones seem to be on iTunes, Stichr, etc

    On my list currently is below.
    Watcha all gots?

    Blister gear 30: review: lots of mainly ski gear reviews.

    Vital MTB: good, often linger form interviews with MTB legends and racers. Presenter is good and laid back.

    All things climbing: a blister spin off. Ok. Presenter needs to settle in.

    The Dirtbags diaries: good and varied outdoor stories.

    The Outside Podcast: through outside magazine. Often high quality and great.

    The Enormocast: Legendary, I need to get back into it.

    The Sharp End: just subscribed, so dunno yet!

    Global Skiing: tom Gellie. Ok, intermittent, good to hear an Aussie voice and perspective. Skiing.

    Slide, the avalanche podcast: as it says. Quite listenable.

    Added:

    Mtnmeister: all things alpinism

    Totally Deep: backcountry skiing.

    I listen to VitalMTB too. The Slide podcast sounds awesome.

    I'll add Totally Deep, a Colorado backcountry skiing podcast. Produced by the Enormocast guy.

    Mtn meister and enormocast are faves

    The sharp end is interesting, basically each year the American alpine club put out a booklet on major accidents in the climbing community, the podcast follows this interviewing the actual participants.

    The content can be interesting the host is still finding her feet.

    I’ve kind of got into the Bad Beta podcast, it’s not going to be for everyone as it kind of sounds like the conversation four opinionated climbers would have at a pub.

    Read an hour of people talking shit.

    Im only a year or 2 new to podcasts so only the enormocast and trail runner nation too. I think i like the funnier shows - someone suggested rich roll but he was a bit too serious for me maybe....i cant go past listening to RRR radio on sunday mornings - marine, health and science. And ive just also starting checking out totally deep

    I’ll got into a few new podcasts,

    The low pressure podcast - local whistler guy who seems to know a lot of the top skiers, interesting listen

    The trail show - in the same ilk as the bad beta pod cast, basically a group drinking beer and talking through hiking trends and trails.

    Paragliding
    Cloudbase Mayhem

    Episode 1 is a good place to start, Bill Belcourt from Black Diamond. Episode with Will Gadd excellent. Recent episode with Damien Lacaze and Antoine Girard is cool. They paraglide through the Karakoram, landing partway up Spantik, summit, then fly off and keep going.

    I’ve also got into “the run out” it’s a collaboration between Chris Kalous (from The Enormocast podcast) and Andrew Bisharat.

    Just curious, when do you guys find time to listen to podcasts? Commuting seems like a no-brainer but I spend less than 20 minutes most days doing that.

    On the drive to work (20 minutes), I also ride 3 days a week, so listen then as well.

    I also listen to them when running etc.

    Plenty of opportunities

    72k x 30 secs sounds better/worse than a commute.

    Enjoying the downtime podcast, uk mtb. The ones with tech gurus are really interesting, jordi cortes from fox and the cotic ones were good. Also liked the yoann barelli one.

    Been driving lots for work and painting the house so lots of time for podcasts!
