Should charge for this stuff!

I am a relative newbie in ultrarunning, so when I started about 3 years ago, I scoured the internet for any informative podcasts I could to learn. I found that most podcasts tend to center on the author’s own race accolades, but there are a handful of podcasts out there that actually provide substantive content.

When Jason Koop launched Koopcast in Dec. 2019, it became quickly apparent that his unbiased, science-based coaching style would quickly rise to the top of useful applied information, and it has.

I weekly await for Thursday mornings to roll around when a new podcast is published, and the only problem I have is that I devour the content before the weekend arrives! However, his content is so useful that I will replay it over and over again, even keeping a notebook to capture some nugget I know will benefit me on the trail. In fact, I recently revamped my entire nutrition and hydration program based on what he and notable experts such as Nick Tiller, Andy Blow, Alan McCubbin, Stravos Kavouras provided.

If you want to take your training seriously, subscribe to the KoopCast - while it’s still free!

Good, practical and science-based insight into endurance sports’ most important topics

Koop does a great job of diving into science-based thoughts with leading professionals, while also keeping it light, “bite sized” and practical. Gem of a podcast.
