In this 95th Episode of 40 and 20, we talk about the watches or perhaps just the singular watch, that summited Everest in 1953 on the wrists of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary. If you know anything about the story, you already know that the legend and the facts don’t exactly line up, but, with the help of an article by Outdoor Journal author Matthew Knight, we land at a conclusion leaning even further into the conspiracy than we expected.
Along the way we talk about adventure racing, and (one of?) the greatest rap verse of all time.
Go here, for Matthew Knight’s wonderful article on the topic of Everest Watches (and if you wanna know more, use the google box)
