In episode 9 we hear a heavy weight titan of human powered adventure, Dimitri Kieffer. Dimitri is possibly the most adventurous employee Microsoft ever had!

In episode 7 we hear from climbing legend Conrad Anker. Conrad is world famous for his exceptional list of climbing achievements. He has summited Everest 3 times, the most recent of which was without assisted oxygen. The recent hit film Meru followed Conrad, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk successfully summit the Shark's Fin on Mount Meru, A climb that had defeated more elite climbers than any other peak in the Himalayas over the last 30 years. Conrad is also the lead climber at team North Face. He's also been featured in National Geographic and many of the worlds top climbing magazines for being able to pull off seemingly impossible climbs.
