Absolute legend. Lots of rambling. Often amusing. 10/10 would listen again.

Tons of useful info
Andy has tons of information. On my way to yosemite I listened to him talk about the differences between each type of aid hook for an hour. If you ever want to get into the nitty gritty of xyz climbing gear or technique, this is a fantastic podcast.
