Fun, informational, entertaining

I've ridden mouintain bikes for 20 years, and returned to the sport last year. Since then I've been looking for great mountain biking podcasts to keep stoking the passion. MTB TRIBE is an absolute gem. Host Gareth Beckett is energetic, positive and engaging, and his interviews are not just the standard marketing and sales pitches that other interviews seem to focus on. I've discovered some great personalities in this sport through this podcast. Definitely my favorite MTB podcast, and one of my favorite podcasts overall.
