Episode 233 - Courtney Dauwalter
Talk Ultra is back after an extended break... No better way to eturn with Speedgoat Karl as co-host and an in-depth interview with COURTNEY DAUWALTER!
Very Good in Parts
Some excellent guests and enjoy Karl’s input when he can get a word in. Would prefer less info on Ian’s itinerary and more from the runners themselves. Wouldn’t mind mixing up the elite perspective with a few interviews directed towards normal runners to have a few takeaways to improve our own running / training but that might dilute his podcast / photography business model. Overall Ian is a warm and chatty host and obviously thoroughly enjoys attending, relaying, analysing elite ultra events.
Wayyyyy to serious….
Yes it’s about running but it’s far too serious! It’s only running! I’m an ultra runner and yes I take it really seriously but gosh it’s about having fun on the way. The last thing we want is a podcast taking themselves way too seriously!
Good and bad
I like this podcast but it can be a bit frustrating. Whenever he's intereviewing an amazing woman, he won't let them speak. In a 10 minute inteview, he will speak for 7 minutes and the interviewee will only get to speak for 3 minutes. It's frustrating that he won't let the ladies speak for themselves....
