Real life inspiration

This Trail Runner podcast has relevance for every human, not just runners. You’ll finish each episode with new history trivia and the motivation to accomplish something and turn the things you thought you screwed up into something great. Plus, it’s well-written, not a didactic blab of a run-on interview. Primo!

This sounds like if NPR did a trail running podcast, which is unfortunately not a good thing. It doesn't come across as genuine as other similar podcasts do, where the conversations there are recorded in real-time and flow as such. Not for me.
