My favourite podcast
Brett provides great insight on a wide variety of topics pertinent to the world of trail organizations.
Great variety of guests, and many topics aren't always discussed in the MTB world. It's nice to see the focus put on trails and the community.
This podcast keeps getting better with each thought provoking topic! As someone that doesn't mountain bike, I am blown away at how inclusive and welcoming the mountain bike community is. My family has a home not far from Boothroyd, I was pleasantly surprised to hear about the things that are going on in the little community I used to visit as a child.
