The Friday post of glee is where you get to tell us about your climbing-related happiness this week.

It can be a new achievement or adventure, or just that you climbed and had fun; it can be that your favourite climbing wall is expanding or that you bought new rock shoes or that you found a cool ice-climbing vid on YouTube. No glee is too small -- or too big. Members are encouraged to cheer each other on and share the squee.

N.B. Please feel free to post your glee on any day of the week; the Friday glee is just to get the ball rolling.

To enhance this week's glee: have another podcast, this time from the Power Company. It's focused broadly on training, but even if you're not a training geek, interviews like the one with Alli Rainey on how she completely altered her style as a climber may be of interest.

To enhance this week's glee: Paul Pritchard reads "Rubble Merchants, Slate Heads and Others", his amazing account of the '80s climbing scene in Llanberis.

To enhance this week's glee: inspired by The Enormocast, the inimitable Niall Grimes has started a podcast, Jam Crack!

There are only a few eps so far, most of which are him reading pieces or chatting to a climbing mate, but the standout is his interview with Tommy Caldwell. Wow. This is the first time I've heard Caldwell talk about his experiences in Kyrgyzstan, and Grimes (who was part of the first group of Western climbers into Kyrgyzstan after that) is probably one of the best-positioned people to draw him into talking about it. It's fascinating, and Caldwell sounds like he's actually having fun and enjoying the interview, which (after all the post-Dawn Wall media attention he's survived) is impressive.

Podcasts!

I thought some people might be interested to know that the most recent episodes of Training Beta are interviews with Tom Randall and Dave MacLeod, respectively.

Other luminaries interviewed in past episodes include Adam Ondra, Ben Moon, Alex Puccio, Kevin Jorgeson, Alex Johnson, Angie Payne, the Anderson brothers, Hazel Findlay, Alex Barrows ... the list goes on.

I'm also enjoying The Enormocast.

Are there other climbing-related podcasts people have found end enjoyed? Any standout episodes you'd recommend?
