A podcast about the lives of mountain climbers

Hey friends, my name is Evan Phillips and I’m your host at The Firn Line, a podcast about the lives of mountain climbers. On Season One, Stories From Alaska’s Mountains, I’ll talk to alpinists and other alpine adventurers who are pushing the limits of what’s possible in Alaska’s mountains.  My goal is to tell meaningful stories about a truly inspiring and unique group of people; folks who choose to live full-value lifestyles in some of the most beautiful and wild regions on the planet.  The Firn Line weaves taped interviews, thoughtful narration, and atmospheric music to craft episodes that will inspire and connect people.  I also hope to tell some damn interesting stories along the way.
