Rab heads into third season of The Mountain People Podcast

Written by

Launching 25th July, host Andy Cave and guests explore what being bold really means when it comes to climbing mountains.


British outdoor brand Rab (owned by Equip Outdoor Technologies Ltd.) is about to launch the third season of their successful The Mountain People Podcast. Renowned mountaineer and host Andy Cave will explore what it means to “Be Bold” in climbing, with a diverse range of inspiring guests.

Whatever the discipline, spending time in the mountains will always be accompanied by an element of risk. However, being bold is not just about physical risk, at some point we all encounter mental barriers and defining the right mindset is crucial.

“This series features conversations about ‘being bold’ - the mental side of climbing - with a fascinating and diverse range of individuals. How can we be the best that we can be? What are the barriers that we must overcome? I am very excited to see this series launch, it is packed with insight and authenticity.” - Andy Cave, host of The Mountain People Podcast
