The Boardroom: Out of Office

by

Boardroom: Out of Office brings fans inside the candid conversations entrepreneurs, athletes, entertainers, and executives have with each other once they’ve left the confines of work itself. From career trajectories to the ins-and-outs of entrepreneurship to the “aha!” moments along the way, host Rich Kleiman gives fans a look at culture in a brand-new way by examining life at the intersection of business and entertainment. Alex Honnold gained global fame after the release of the film Free Solo, based on his death-defying climb –with no ropes or safety equipment– of Yosemite Park’s El Capitan. The film captivated audiences, won the 2019 Oscar for Best Documentary, and established Honnold as one of the world’s greatest athletes. Though Honnold has not always appeared to revel in the fame the film brought him, he’s made good use of the opportunities. Now, the primary face of his sport, he’s expanded the work of his foundation, and has greatly raised awareness for rock climbing. As the upcoming Olympics prepares to feature climbing as an event for the first time, Honnold was likely a big factor in the sport achieving Olympic status. In this episode, Honnold talks to Rich and Gianni about what people get wrong about what motivates elite climbers, why he’s excited about his new podcast series, and the inspiration he’s taken from legendary female climber, Lynn Hill. Honnold even invites Rich and Gianni to climb rocks with him in Central Park next time he visits New York City. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
