This week on The Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re summiting the tallest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest. Ok so, we’re not actually climbing the mammoth mountain, but we’re discussing many people who have.
What makes a person want to take on such an extreme and deadly venture? We don’t have all the answers, but we sure can speculate.
Not all who attempt to reach the top of Mt. Everest make it back down safely. In fact, there are hundreds of bodies scattered along the ridge lines, many of which are visible to climbers as they make their way up.
Tune in as we talk about this perilous section of the mountain known as “the dead zone” and the mindset necessary for trekking past the frozen corpses of those who climbed before you.
Stick around to the end of this week’s episode as we examine the parallels between the behavior of Everest climbers and the endless “freedumb fighters” of the pandemic. Their similarities are striking, considering both are hell-bent on reaching the top even if it means climbing over bodies.
