A high altitude mountaineer travels through sub-zero temperatures, scales treacherous terrain, and carries hundreds of pounds of supplies. Many of us have very little in common with this person. We don’t need to worry about the lack of oxygen in the air or the extent of frostbite in our toes. Yet, we are all human. There are certain ideas which apply to all of us, no matter if we are standing at 29,029 feet or sea level. Why is it important to step outside of our comfort zone? How do we weigh risk vs. reward? What impact does human behavior have on our decision making? On MTNmeister, we explore these ideas by talking with those who have found answers in the extremes. Ben Schenck, the host of MTNmeister (pronounced Mountain Meister), asks thought-provoking and sometimes uncomfortable questions that you won't hear in a typical interview. Notable guests include Ueli Steck, Sasha DiGiulian, Dean Karnazes, Anton Krupicka, Dave Hahn, Lynn Hill, and other adventurers in climbing, skiing, hiking, biking, mountain guiding, the backcountry, etc. Join Ben and the Meisters twice a week for discussions that prove we are all just human.
