70: The Long Small Talk (@orikasahiroto)

We invited Mr. Orikasa from FAT CAP, a company that started with the “FAT CAP” which is an attachment that turns bolt-on holds into screw-on holds, and now produces a series of unique holds.

I had no idea what we were going to talk about, but we talked about old times, holds, and ended up talking about shapes for about an hour. I hope you enjoyed it, even if it was just small talk.
