Jeff and Dave introduce the new segment Brush With Fame. Dave meets a Baywatch beauty (twice) and Jeff meets Mike Tyson. Jeff explains the Yosemite climbing rating system. Dave explains another obscure film crew credit and talks about being bit by a pig while filming The Dog Whisperer.
Our guest is Photographer Jim Thornburg. Jim estimates he has spent 23,000 hours over the past 20 years capturing images of climbers, and his extraordinary effort has produced a prodigious body of inspirational work. Jim’s work has appeared on the covers of Climbing and Rock and Ice, Grimper and California Climber as well as equipment catalogues for Mountain Gear, Prana, Patagonia and Black Diamond.
Jim is the Author of Stone Mountains: North America’s Best Crags and the guidebook Bay Area Rock. Books can be found at jimthornburg.com
