Approximately 200 people have ever summited Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest peak, without using supplemental oxygen. In 2016, elite high altitude climbers Adrian Ballinger and Cory Richards attempted to do so. Cory made it to the top. Adrian had to stop just before the summit. The first episode of Afterglow is a deeply personal and inspirational conversation with both climbers, recorded in February of 2017. Ballinger opens up about how he was able to process and harness his “failure” for ultimate gain, while Richards speaks to the demons that drove him to seek redemption at the roof of the world.
