Addicted to the Britishness of this podcast!

Love Martin and Tom (and Holly and Tony). I’ve learned so much and laughed so much and now speak with a British accent even though I’m from Indiana. Keep up the brilliant interviews, lads!

My Sunday run Podcast!

I really enjoy listening to the banter between Martin and Tom, but Holly and Tony are great, too! Really look forward to their perspective on all that is running, and how they bring in their own experiences.
