Really gone downhill

This podcast used to be great but it’s really slipped. Marcus fancies himself some kind of street philosopher and the two of them together basically say that you can’t really know anything about training unless you have their experience. They don’t give hardly any actionable advice for runners. The latest episode with David Epstein is another piece of evidence. They have him on just to laud and sell the new Magness and Stulberg boom. These guys really need to get over themselves.

Great conversation, love your work, but one thing...

I am a cycling coach and bike fitter. Not a runner. You guys have great comments and philosophies on coaching and I enjoy your podcast. That said, I wish you would know more about Dave Asprey before you trash him. He may not have a degree in whatever, but he is an expert on many things. I am not here to champion the guy, he's not my guru. And I understand your point about following random bio hackers. But there is an enormous amount of useful and actionable info from that world. Science and academia are as flawed as any other domain of knowledge. Keep up the good work and I love your passion for your sport.

Very good content

I love the podcast and these two guys know what they're talking about. The on ly thing they're missing is a bit of post-production to move the podcast from good to great... Thanks for the efforts. I have learned a lot by listening to both of you.
