The aerials project

This is an incredible video with views of the Himalayas probably never seen before in the history of mankind. It is truly like being able to view the scenery from the perspective of a bird. This video caps an already superlative series.

Loyal Fan!

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone with dreams of experiencing the journey to Mt. Everest.I've been watching these episodes for several years now. I look forward to each new release. As a kid, I always dreamed of climbing Mt. Everest but never got the chance. This has helped fill that dream.Keep it up John. Thanks for doing this for all of us!

Look forward to every new episode

I started watching from episode 000 about a year ago and I have watched every episode. I hope to someday go on one of the treks but for now, I will have to settle with watching the podcasts. Keep up the great work!

A bit unfocused and drawn out.

The show is ok. It has some moments that can be interesting, but in most cases, it's not. Video is extremely repetitive and focuses on unimportant and mundane activities. There's no reason that there should be almost 15 minutes of video showing a bunch of people trying to set up a projector, for example. The commenting tends to drift, with the cameraman often repeating himself, and the climber (when he's actually commenting) tends to sound bored, using one word replies, and in most cases, he tends to say "absolutely", "mmm hmm", etc... And you kind of get the feeling that the main voice of the podcast (Jon), tends to come off a little weak, almost a bit feminine in his tone of voice and choice of words he makes to describe something. There's a difference between being polite and being wussy.

The Rest of Everest

Excellent! I feel like I know members of the expedition. Jon also provides a wonderful view of himalayan cultures and of course Everest itself. I am telling all my friends about it. Thanks Jon.

Perfect

I just finished the '03 expedition and can't wait to see what's coming up next!!!!! Great great great job guys. Jon and Ben are the bees knees!!! Everyone needs to dwnload this podcast RIGHT NOW start with ep.000 and work your way up. It's very interesting how tough it is just to reach everest. Hey Jon let me know if you need a "key grip" for your next expedition. 100 stars if I could.

Amazing podcast that is addicting

This podcast is the most addicting podcast I have seen. I would compare this very favorably with other podcast/videos on Everest. I really appreciate how this podcast showed the climbs as they were - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Not being a climber myself, this would probably be as close to the Everest climb as I would get, though after seeing this podcast I am seriously tempted to go trekking there and follow these guys' footsteps. Highly recommended and keep up the good work!

Bet you can't watch just one!

The members of this expedition virtually take you along on their journey. There is no "conquering" attitude here- these guys are respectful, nice, AND fun to 'hang out' with. Your challenge will be to have the patience while waiting for the next podcast to come out. Thanks for all your hard work! I'm a big fan!!! Keep those podcasts coming.......

Hooked

I am completely hooked on this podcast. Be sure to start at episode zero you will get an appreciation on what goes into just getting to Everest. It is eye opening experience of what it is like to be at Everest. John thanks for putting this podcast out.

A true documentary

My three lovely young daughters got me an iPod Nano for my birthday recently and I came across this podcast while browsing around. I'm totally hooked! I watch as many episodes as I can during my commute to/from work each day. I'm only up to episode 36, but am trying to catch up. My only complaint is I should have asked for the Touch with a larger screen...viewing on a 2 inch screen is not great. Hats off to Jon, Ben and their friends as they capture stunning images, wonderful commentary and the culture which when all summed together is way more than just a trek up a mountain. All should watch this...it's great!
