Listen more than once

I love this podcast. Wish it came out more frequently! I have listened to all the episodes at least twice and still find myself going back and reviewing specific content. With all the misinformation out there, it's great to have a resource to refer to, and to refer my friends to. Working at a climbing gym, we get a lot of questions about how to fuel, when, how much, etc, and I see a lot of practices that don't make much sense scientifically and really set climbers back in attaining their goals. Please keep up the great work! I think the format is fine (and entertaining), but some high-level timecoding in the show notes would help in navigating episodes (even in 15-20 min increments, or hour 1, hour 2).

Incredible nutrition resource

So happy to have stumbled accross this resource. It's called ClimbSci, but a lot of the content isn't particularily climbing specific -- it's more of an all purpose guide to the fascinating world of nutrition for athletes. Everything is there from theoretical biochemical underpinnings to practical advice on how to structure a diet tailored for your goal, whether that's peak performance or fat loss.

The only challenge is finding the material most relevant to you -- the podcasts are long & Tom and Brian are still getting a feel for the best way to structure the information they're getting across, but for me even the tagents have been well worth the listen.

Thanks for putting this out into the world guys!
