A couple of weeks ago, Carrot brought up how interesting it would be to discuss current and niche topics in the podcast in a laidback ‘friends getting together’ manner. We reached out to two of our close friends, Kaitlin and Payson, and the idea of Climbers vs. Culture emerged. So be ready to listen to three friends getting together to talk about straight-up bs for close to an hour. Just kidding (not really), we covered the first topic of TheDihedral’s Climbing vs. Culture mini series, Dirtbags and Dirtbaging.
In all honesty, we ended up talking about everything and nothing at the same time. We had not talked openly to each other in a long time and it was the first time catching up in years. Both Kait and Payson are climbing friends from our local gym; however, one moved out of state a long time ago and the other is in grad school. Therefore, you will be catching up with us too.
The topic in question is discussed from our own perspective and based on our experiences in the climbing community. Beware that the latter ranges from vast to limited, so the answers to the questions and the comments that follow suit will vary and are in no way set in stone. Which means that you might define a dirtbag and gauge on your dating experience with one (or lack thereof) differently than us.
We invite you to join us on this journey and to bear with our ability to veer off topic often. But hey! You might get entertained.
