Episode 21 – The Highest Grave



Due to some scheduling conflicts, we had to switch some things up a bit for this episode. But never fear! You (and by that I mean the audience) got to vote on a shorter episode for this week. And you all chose…the mysteries behind the dead bodies left behind on Mount Everest? Oh boy…

Since the 1920s, Mt. Everest has stood as a metaphor for surmounting all odds. But over the years, experienced adventurers have lost their lives on this formidable mountain. This “treasure-lite” episode explores a few mysteries, including the doomed Mallory/Irvine expedition, which may have pre-dated the famous Norgay/Hillary achievement by several decades.
