Sweet, informative, entertaining interviews and semi rants ;)
Tim and his wealth of experience shine in this cool podcast that has you nodding your head right along as it plays on your long runs. The show is fun and smart with out being pedantic, I always feel like I've learned something about a topic or person and been entertained in the process. Really makes the runs I listen to the podcast on fly by.
Informative, entertaining and pretty darn funny.
If you enjoy laid back conversation about everything concerning endurance sports, and then some, you will enjoy this show. Check it out. These guys will have you smiling.
Honest and Insightful
Sometimes I hate you both. Sometimes you crack me up. Some episodes are of the most interesting I have ever heard (i.e. Black Marathoner's Association, Jill Homer, Ed Sandor). Others are of no interest to me whatsoever (bike). Sometimes I feel like you are speaking directly at the douchebag part of me, calling it out and criticizing it. And I love that. This podcast is like the wild west - unpredictable, varrying in subjects and themes and, at times, about nothing. Sometimes it is negative. Sometimes it's real positive. Here are a few things it never does - pander, hold back, lie, ego stroke and/or just say what's popular today. I appreciate that honesty. I appreciate the fact that you often times say what most people are thinking but are afraid to say out loud. You are brutally honest to a fault.....and I find that extremely entertaining.
If you have a poster of Anton on your wall, watch Unbreakable on a constant loop or take a picture of every run you take you might not love this podcast. Yet. Go run a few hard races and come back in a year or so. I promise you that once you finish cooking all the recipies from "Eat and Run" and you realize that "Ultramarathon Man" only scratched the surface of the wild world of ultrarunning you may find that a lot of what takes place here makes an awful lot of sense.
Don't change a thing.
