Ever wondered if you would survive a storm on Everest? Cathy O’Dowd, the first woman to summit the mountain from the north and south, tells us the truth about the 1996 disaster and gives insight into avalanche, base camp, Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air memoir and what it’s like to climb the Hillary Step. The event, documented by writer Jon Krakauer in his bestselling book, would lead to the deaths of eight climbers and leave several others, including Kenneth Kamler, stranded and fighting for their lives.

Chris and Cathy
C – So Cathy how are you?
C – I’m very well. I had a quick chance to look at your story, so please tell me what’s your podcast about?
C – Well, it’s like this. I began watching The Joe Rogan Experience a couple of years ago, and I just loved the informal style chats he would have with his guests, who were allowed to talk about any subjects, most of which interested me, none of which you would see on our BBC.
