    Sabrina Stanley, Maggie Guterl | BYP 058

    Excited to converse with Adidas athlete Sabrina Stanley for the first time! We covered a lot of things in this one including her most recent Nolan's 14 FKT (Fastest Known Time), the double standards of competitiveness for men and women, her passion to be the best in this sport and much more. Also a catch up with good friend and ultra stud Maggie Guterl on crewing for Courtney Dauwalter's latest FKT attempt on the Colorado Trail and what to expect from Big's Backyard Ultra coming up in October.

    The John Muir Trail with Elan Lieber and Gabi Maudiere | BYP 057

    On July 5, 2020 I started my dream of completing the iconic 211 mile John Muir Trail along with my friends Elan Lieber and Gabi Maudiere. What happened over the next 14 days is the topic of discussion on today's podcast: the highs and lows, went we did right, what we did wrong, the surprise at the end and much more.

    Krissy Moehl | BYP 056

    Honored and delighted to finally sit down with ultrarunning legend and trailblazer Krissy Moehl. She ran her first ultramarathon (the Chuckanut 50K) back in 2000 and has been dominating ever since. With wins at high profile races like HURT100, UTMB, Hardrock, Ultra Trail Mt Fuji among many others, she's cemented her name in the pantheon of the greats. But it was also her perspective and diverse work that I was interested in chatting about too so we cover all aspects of the sport, of life and what the future holds.

    Adam Campbell | BYP 055

    (Postponed release by two weeks due to protests)
    Honored to speak with Canadian and Arcteryx athlete Adam Campbell (38:19). He has been a hugely successful ultrarunner who has suffered some tragic events. One nearly cost him his life when in August of 2016, he fell off a mountain during an FKT attempt. But the biggest tragedy occurred in January of 2020 when he lost his wife Laura "LK" Kosakoski from a ski accident. How does one find the strength and courage to move on? We get into it in our chat. Also, past guest and coach Jason Koop comes on (6:22) to speak and memorialize his friend, noted author and podcaster David Clark.

    June 1, 2020 | BYP 054

    In the aftermath of the George Floyd/BLM Protests in LA to the subsequent destruction of our family's store since 1984, I offer some brief albeit stream of consciousness thoughts. But mainly gratitude for all the generous support you've shown me and my family. Thank you.

All-around heartfelt winner

6/1/20 episode brought me to tears. Such a gracious, heartbreaking reminder that we always have a choice how to respond when we’re harmed. Wishing you, your family, and our whole country (everyone!) the best. Beyond that...Billy is an intuitive and incisive interviewer, offering just the right “next” question or comment with a skillful blend of psychological probing and storytelling acumen. Well-produced. A real gem for this recreational trail runner and film fan.
