The 50-minute show is titled "Climbing, Snowboarding and an Egg Sandwich" in reference to James' feat of soloing 100 Lakes Extremes in a day, fuelled by 'just one egg sandwich.'

Shauna emphasises the growing number of women taking up climbing, with references to the success of her annual Women's Climbing Symposium and to the fact that the bar for elite female achievements is being raised higher and higher each year. 

The podcast is available to listen to here.
