Perfect podcast for long runs

Although the runners that Ben selects for his show are all inspirational, Ben is the superstar of this podcast with the perfect format, his detailed research and awesome interview skills. I love this show and can’t wait for Season 2.

Relatable, inspiring stories

I recently discovered this podcast, and am enjoying it immensely! As someone who has finished in the bottom 5-10% of the handful of ultras I’ve done, it’s super inspiring to hear stories of back of the packers struggling against the odds to crush crazy distances. The interviewing style is warm and inviting, the stories are gripping, keep it up Ben!
