Reviews aren’t important

Ratings and reviews aren’t important to these guys, in the same way that breathing and good coffee aren’t!

Love the show so keep up the great work x

Thanks For All The Fish! ,

Love it - learn to enjoy running more .... with a smile

Such a nice fella who not only really enjoys his stuff, but really knows how to find & interview other really interesting / motivating people. Recommended listening by the Lonely Goat Running Club, and I’m so glad I tried it. Well done Jake! Keep it up
