Can we please, please have a sticky for this?

I keep missing the episodes - and the thread, when it's on the home page.

I know this is really lazy of me, but I bet there are loads of folk who'll be missing this gold.

Just thought I'd do a repimp on Jam Crack. Been a whole bunch of episodes gone up lately. The Mark Leach one has got a lot of love

Thank you so much for making jamcrack a thing Grimer.

There was a time a few months ago when I was listening to the one with the Belgian-Irish guy whilst walking the pushchair down Abbeydale Road. There's a very seriously funny part to that interview involving a 35 centimetre ruler that had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe properly. Was almost crippled in hysterics as the cars drove by.

Honestly one of the best laughs I ever had. Great times.

Just got as far as Redhead, been on a splurge, getting through 1 every 2 days or so over the last few weeks. God knows what I'm going to do if I start having to wait for them.

All brilliant, good work Grimer.

Thanks Grimer, I use these to help me sleep, drifting off to your soft Irish lilt.

Last night my wife woke up and wanted to know why I was crying. I was actually laughing listening to the Adam Ondra exclusive.

I'd be careful. The first hour is an interview, then there's a short gap, then it's 6 hours of Grimer whispering "kill them, kill them all" over and over.

The Redhead episode is one of the best I reckon but I might be slightly biased towards a fellow Hullensian  :)

Just listened to Nick Bullock reading from his book. It was great. Really well written (and read) interesting stories. May have to buy the book now! I generally prefer the interview style podcast but this one has got be psyched for more of the readings.

Just to ramble on with a bit more appreciation for the Steve McClure one. Think I've read, seen a few things with Steve where he was essentially repeating stories from his book. I was expecting more of the same here but as usual Niall manages to get some different stories or the same stories from a different angle out of his interviewee.

I've just swallowed hard on my self-promotion drugs and plucked up the courage to write on here.

There's been a bunch more Jam Cracks up lately, and I think they are starting to get good.

Look on here for readings by Paul Pritch (pretty harrowing account of waking up in hospital)

Mina L-J (surprisingly obsessed and excited about multi-year projecting)

Gus and Mark H (dark as you like gritsone story)

Natalie Berry (mellow hour of nice chat)

Jim Herrington (cool stories of some climbing mege legends, and Dolly)

Calvin Torrans (The total don of Irish climbing)

http://www.niallgrimes.com/jam-crack-climbing-podcast/

And already recorded waiting to see the light of day are Mick Fowler, Gary Gibson, Michael Duffy, Johnny Dawes and Nick Dixon.

Phew. Self-promotion finished, I'm off for a lie down.

Self-recommending. I shared a campsite in Camp 4 with him in 198...cough. Great tales!

Thanks Niall, I've really enjoyed some of the recent ones. Steve Mac was great, and like others have said I was surprised how much I got into the story ones, I'd put these off in favour of the interviews until recently. Nick Bullock & Paul Pritchard were both gripping, and Gus's grit story was bloody dark / good!

Great job and keep 'em coming  :2thumbsup:
