Adventure Photographer and Writer
Imagine yourself seated in your favorite pub. A map lying out on the old wooden table. Whiskey liberally poured into your glass. Your guest places a finger on the map and begins “there I was …” These are true stories from expeditions and adventures as told by those who lived them.
I really enjoyed doing this podcast and think it is among the best I've ever done. Michael Reinhart is a patient and perceptive interviewer ... Tim Cahill, adventure writer & co-founder of Outside Magazine
What a “You are there” experience!
Your interview with Dr. Turk- through your gentle guidance and knowledgeable interview style- lends much insight as to how, even since before recorded history, humans such as the Stone Age mariners set out on adventures that could often end in death.
Or… that could begin a new life, and new ways of seeing a brand new world from “over the horizon.”
So well done, Mike.
I look forward to more of these podcasts.

Leif Whittaker, son of Jim Whittaker who was the first American to summit Mt. Everest, grew up on a sail boat with his family sailing the Pacific. Initially not interested in climbing, that all changed at age 15 when he and his older brother hiked 20 miles into the wilderness without their parents and climbed Mt. Olympus. Since then, he has traveled across the globe and climbed some of the world’s highest peaks, including Aconcagua, Mt. Vinson, Denali, and two ascents of Mt. Everest.
Leif worked for more than a decade as a Climbing Ranger for the U. S. Forest Service on Mt. Baker protecting it’s wilderness and engaging in emergency rescues. He is also a founding member and top coach for Evoke Endurance where he specializes in coaching mountaineers.
His book, My Old Man and the Mountain, was published by Mountaineers Books in 2016 and won several awards.
