Worlds Best Podcast

Love your podcast, if anyone is considering running or pitting at WTM this is the podcast you need to listen too! I ran Worlds last year for the first time, in the months and weeks leading up it I would listen to your podcast daily to try to learn as much as I could. You episode ‘how not to die at WTM’ was incredibly helpful. Always excited to see new episodes coming out, can’t want to see you at WTM again this year.

Love This Podcast

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned vet you will get something out of this podcast. Great information and candid interviews. Will has an awesome sense of humour and always entertains. The perfect companion podcast for those long wtm training runs!
