Segment 2:

In 2011, Carol Masheter came to the conclusion that as much as she loved her career, it was getting in the way of her passion to climb mountains. So she left her job and, days later, was en route to climb another of the Seven Summits. Now she’s conquered them all, written a book about climbing Everest and keeps writing and speaking. On Thursday, Masheter joins me to talk about adventure in retirement.
