Great Show

Been a long time listener, by far my favourite triathlon podcast. Mark is really knowledgeable about the sport and speaks with a rare level of common sense, demystifying the noise that surrounds the sport. The podcast has a bit everything and Mark works really hard to build a community within the sport which he clearly loves.

Best no nonsense triathlon podcast out there

Been listening to Marks podcast for years now. Very informative with humour chucked in for good measure.
Helps the miles tick by listening to his shows.
His programs are spot on too. Helped me many times to complete my Ironman triathlons.
Keep up the great work.

Derogative description of transgender athletes

Listened to the Celtman episode but almost stopped before the interview (I mostly enjoyed this bit) due to Mark's derogative description of transgender athletes "...men pretending to be women..." which spoilt his supportive attitude of British Triathlon's new transgender policy.
