Customer Reviews

DbONeill ,

Exellent, thanks

As a runner in his 50s returning to the sport after a long absence, I've learned more from this running podcast than any other. And the laid-back, easy humour, and smart questions from the hosts are great. Many thanks.

Promoting dangerous pseudoscience

In the opening of episode 427 they are promoting cannibals oil as a means of treating depression and other serious illnesses. This is totally irresponsible and I will not support it in anyway.
