Welcome to Between The Mountains. I’m Chris; the host.
I love adventure travel. Having multiple seeds sown throughout my life, I was finally bitten – officially – by the travel bug in 2017 when doing a solo roadtrip to the Swiss Alps and back. I talk about this in Episode 1.
As a Father and outdoor enthusiast, I have a passion for and experience with getting outdoors and travelling, with my own weakness being ‘summit fever’. I love the mountains, there’s just something different compared to all other landscapes that draws me back each time.
It is my goal to deliver brilliant anecdotes, advice and adventure through itineraries and interviews on the podcast. I take such enjoyment from this, and no matter how big we build Between The Mountains to be, podcasts will always remain at the core of this.
To top it off, I’ve also announced my project ‘The Road To Denali’, which you can check out here.
“Chris asked well-researched questions and was overall the best interview host I have experienced to date. He is very professional and provides engaging content for his listeners.” Renee Hahnel, Travel Photographer And Blogger, Episode 40
“Between The Mountains podcast was one of the most thorough and enjoyable to date. Chris’s questions were well researched, planned, and delivered and brought us into a really inspiring and engaging conversation about adventure and why we do what we do. Chris’s enthusiasm shone throughout! Also great to be linked via Sidetracked Magazine” Ian Finch, Expedition Leader and Photographer, Episode 89
“Love the podcast and was such a pleasure being interviewed on it. I’ve learnt so much since discovering it and my psych to get out and go climbing has gone through the roof. As a contributor and listener- thank you!” Bonita Norris, Mountain Climber and Adventurer, Episode 88
“Recording Between The Mountains with Chris was an absolute pleasure. He quelled any initial nerves I had as soon as we met (on Zoom) and we ended up chatting away for the best part of an hour before we even started recording! When we actually got into the nitty gritty, it was very clear that Chris had done his research and I was impressed at the level of detail and thought that went into his questions. It was a bit embarrassing when he quoted one of the corny things I’d previously said back to me though!! Chris was so easyContinue reading “Emily Scott”
“There’s loads of podcasts nowadays, but a real difference between those with a genuine passion for sharing people’s stories, and those for self-promotion. Chatting with Chris instantly felt more like sharing stories with a friend on some far-flung expedition. His professionalism and enthusiasm brought refreshing and fascinating questions, and we could have chatted all day!” Alex Staniforth, Endurance Athlete and Founder of Mind Over Mountains, Episode 79
I have been lucky enough to record several episodes of the Between The Mountains Podcast with Chris. His interviews are really top notch. He asks the perfect questions and gives his listeners a great glimpse into not only the adventures that he covers, but also a look into those who are out there pushing the boundaries of what humans are capable of. I can’t wait to see what he has coming next and I look forward to being a part of more episodes in the future. Not only did I get a chance to be a part of something reallyContinue reading “Dustin Thompson”
“I love talking to people on the same wavelength. While chatting to Chris I could really feel his interest and passion for the outdoors. The podcast was really professional, high quality and I’m looking forward to an opportunity to appear on it again!” Tim Howell, BASE Jumper and Mountaineer, Episode 77
“It was a pleasure being interviewed by Chris on his podcast. His passion for adventure and his dedication to producing a great podcast shone through.” Holly Budge, first woman to skydive above Everest, mountaineer, adventurer, and conservationist. From Episode 85
“Of all the podcasts I’ve done, Chris’ interview was without doubt the most well researched I’ve ever enjoyed taking part in. A few times he brought up a few parts of my past that I’d honestly forgotten about, he even researched some of my family history. The effort Chris puts in to prepare really shows in his questions, which were completely original and really made me think reflectively on how to answer them, all balanced with good humour like talking to a friend at the bar. I seriously look forward to recording the next one.” Will Copestake, Expedition Leader, EpisodeContinue reading “Will Copestake”
“I had an absolute blast doing this podcast and was actually sad when our time was up! Having a host who has done their homework is something I’ve found to be critical when appearing as a guest and I’m sure it’s more enjoyable for the listeners too. Chris entirely delivers on that front so a great experience all round” Jenny Wordsworth, Polar Explorer and Endurance Athlete, Episode 80
“I’ve been fortunate enough to be on a few podcasts and Between the Mountains has to be one of my favourites. Chris truly took the time to research my travel and career history, and that was evident through a great line of questioning that not only touched on some of my career highlights but got into the WHY behind my travel and adventures. Chris’ podcast is polished, it’s well edited and the sound quality is superb. I appreciated every aspect of the process and being involved in his epic series.” TJ David, Professional Skier And Coach, Episode 26
“One of the most fun podcasts I’ve ever been a guest on.” Mark Wolter, Travel YouTuber and Marketer, Episode 52
