The Accent is the Best Part
Zoran is a Croation born Canadian. As such he has a thick Croation accent that is delightful to listen to. But even if he spoke redneck, it would still be a wonderful podcast. Zoran seems to be an experienced runner. He has researched his subjects and speaks with knowledge and authority. The podcast is truly delightful and is DEFINATELY one of my "don't miss" shows.
This is a great podcast because if you are a runner you will enjoy it. I also like how Zoran reads the email and does take suggestions for future podcasts. He also does his research, if you run you'll know what he's talking about. The podcasts are not too long and cover a variety of topics. Keep up the great work!
I've been listening to Zoran's Runcast for more than a year. He not only shares good info from running research, but also shares practical advice from his own extensive running experience. Definitely worth listening to.
