Our weekly podcast shares the unique perspective of the North East, Beast Coast Ultra running scene: raw, impulsive, and irreverent. The Cultra Trail Running Podcast is a place where we can get together and discuss all the fun stuff that happens on the trails that most normal people don't care about. Join the Cult! or maybe you already have without realizing it... resistance is futile.
One and a Half Double Half Episode
We came, we saw, we jackassed. We talk about (in no particular order): Covid, contrast baths and showers, Burning Man, a half marathon, then a double half, then a triple half (or one and a half marathons), giving away our medals and participation trophies, running in the rain, and other wonderful and useful topics for you to run with or sit in traffic listening to.

Sassquad Running with Kim Levinsky in NJ
New Jersey is not known for its trails, but we're hoping that changes soon- and if Sassquad Trail Runners' Kim Levinsky has anything to say about that, then it changes today! Kim has a competitive background as a two-sport athlete collegiately and brings her passion over to the trails and infuses that into every Sassquad Trail Party.
North South Trail FKT: 78 Miles in the Snow
How does it feel to be outside in the middle of winter in New England for over 40 hours unsupported? Jimmy Mac and LSE could have had someone wiping their arses every few keelo-meeters but they chose not to. But you always gotta consider the "Why". There will definitely be faster FKT's set on this route, but one would have to try really hard to match the experience of doing it under these conditions. It is a tale of hard fought Finishing Lines, not Finishing Times.

Epic Stout Podcast
The Cultra Crew has great discussions about running in the Beast Coast. If you want to be inspired to get out and run something crazy, this is the podcast you have been waiting for. They have a cultra karaoke line that you can use to get a song unstuck from your head.
With all the mentions of the FKTs and Patreon supporters and recaps of races, they are instrumental in bringing together the ultra running community in the Northeast US.
If you like to laugh, and want to not taken yourself seriously, give it a listen. You won’t regret it.

Draw strange looks in public
I started listening around episode 60. I laugh out loud at least once per episode and that tends to draw strange looks when road running. I’m simultaneously listening going forward while working my way through all the back episodes. Listening in reverse chronological order is very much like Marvel super hero origin stories; dismembered monkey hands, douche canoes, Gelato all is revealed in time. When Jimmy Mack said a squirrel yelled at him something shot out of my nose while I was running. So if don’t mind strange looks and losing control of your bodily functions this may be the podcast for you.
