Awesome Resource

I don’t listen to each episode as it comes out, nor do I listen to all episodes. I doubt few do. I do listen as I have time and do TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO LISTEN TO VERY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE EXPLAIN WHAT THEY THINK MADE THEM SUCCESSFUL. There is a wider breadth of information here than just POWERLIFTING LEGENDS and their training philosophies. The show on Autism and letter boards might sound far afield for Table Talk, but it remains one of the more impactful and educational for me personally.

A lot of podcasts in this genre put out content on a schedule, and if that content is of little more value than bad morning radio, so be it.

You don’t get that here. The guests are top notch and the discussions are educational.

Extremely Informative Podcast

My favorite part is the diversity of people Dave interviews on the podcast, ranging from old Westside guys, competitive strongman or bodybuilders, to current strength & conditioning coaches. The podcast gives a lot of variety so that you know you are getting unbiased knowledge, first hand, from a wide range of sources!

Unrelated to the podcast itself. After hearing about Marek Health and frankly fast forwarding through the “commercial” a handful of times, I finally decided to check them out and the Table Talk panel is BY FAR the most comprehensive panel I have ever seen and is significantly more thorough than anything my doctor has ever ordered. As I get older the concept of hormone optimization and longevity is becoming more important and I just ordered my labs with Marek Health to start their guided process.

Great podcast, and true to Dave’s motto of life learn and pass on!

Hotelfishboy ,

Great podcast

Every time I listen to the podcast I take away some info. It a great learning resource and entertaining at the same time. Dave also provides in some episodes the spark to start searching out new ways to train, better exercise variations etc. good stuff!
