Episode 005: World's First Vegan Summit of Everest with Kuntal Joisher


160 km/h winds, temperatures well below freezing point, oxygen levels not supportive of human life and looming avalanches.. these all sound like good reasons to stay away from such a place.

Yet our today’s Guest is someone who keeps going back for more, even though he gets caught in an avalanche, completely certain he is about to die..

His passion and obsession for the mountains, and his commitment to the vegan movement has led him off the comforts of his 9-5 job as a software engineer to summiting the highest place on Earth, Mount Everest.
