When it comes to content about Mt. Everest or K2, we eat it up with a spoon. We all know the feeling of not being able to put down Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, hanging on every word with an overwhelming need to soak up every detail of a mountain that takes no prisoners. While listening to Against the Odds, K2: The Savage Mountain, we noticed the exact feeling taking over. This 4-part series hosted by Mike Corey and Cassie De Pecol chronicles the tragic run for the K2 Summit in 2008. Seasoned hikers from around the world embarked on a bucket list adventure that is stymied by unpredictable weather, summit fever and bad communication. This tale is told with an all time high intensity. We threw off our buds thinking we can't listen anymore, only to jump right back in after a few deep breaths. K2 is the grave for a staggering one out of four people. So we ask you, would you play those odds?
