Final Climbing Audio Podcast

For my audio assignment I think I started too broad, with having Colt talk about the outdoors in general rather than having a focused topic to build a clearer story and also to eliminate all the extra time I had. My first audio was 17 minutes, my draft was 8, and my final came in around 3. I narrowed it to climbing because with the bouldering wall closing this semester and it being the sport I have honed in on the most this semester it seemed fitting to role with the climbing theme that has evolved on my blog. I got the interview with Colt, and after the draft audio, I realized I could incorporate my own story in as well. Colt has had a huge influence on me and my climbing and I thought we agreed a lot about our stories on climbing. I actually changed positions on clips to create a better story that flowed. I then took the pieces from my own interview, and mixed them in with Colt’s responses to have two separate but coinciding story lines running together. I also decided to add some mood with the music, which was created by my friend James Ellis, who also has a climber testimony here:

I got permission and it is also under the free-to-use license.

Wilderwomen was born out of two women with the same dream; build a community of women who empower one another outdoors. Whether you’re seeking yoga, a get away, a tribe, an outdoor adventure, or just some time in nature, Wilderwomen has it all. We host meet-ups and outdoor retreats in the picturesque PNW paradise that include daily yoga, gourmet meals, outdoor adventures, hot spring soaks, glamping and more! We are building a community of women (and men, and partners, and those who don’t opt to define themselves by a gender) who feel confident in their skin and in their technical outdoor abilities, a tribe of humans who deeply care about the environment and each other, and a collection of outdoor enthusiasts and weekend warriors who are excited to get after it in the outdoors.
