Very Informative

These guys know their stuff and do a good job of sharing that Info.

Love the science-based discussions

Other than not always being able to hear the episodes (big gear with Neal Henderson) sounded like it would be super interesting, but so many time throughout the podcast, at the highest volume, I could not hear or decipher what was being said.

Opus Uno ,

As repetitive as a chain spinning round

Guests are really great - sometimes. Sometimes the audio is as if they are out on a ride phoning it in. But really, my bigest criticism is there's no new ideas. I've listened from the beginning but I can't take Trevor Conner talking about himself anymore. It's become boring and pretty Boulder-centric. Might start listening again if they profiling athletes that make up 99% of their listening audience. Or people with names (not the coaches generic athlete) on local teams across this country, etc. I mean I love Sepp Kuss, but I really don't give a crap how he or any othet elite trains. I want to know how a middle aged Sally a small business owner with 3 kids keeps fast. Or Joe Schmo prepping to finish DK. Colin Stricland and Ted King are great... but seriously... also way beyond most listeners category.
