Best all encompassing OCR Media Podcast

Matt and Dave are great! I'm a big supporter of the sport. Lots of good information on everything obstacle course racing, whether it's obstacles, hybrid, long endurance ultras, etc... Lots of interviews with some of the biggest athletes, operators, trainers, and brands in the sport. Good humor and a light-hearted conversations are enjoyable and entertaining. Dedicated content with 2 sometimes 3 podcasts a week.

Not an Obstacle Racing Podcast

Little to do with OCR. Mostly unedited ramblings of a man who once did an obstacle race or two and now pays his bills podcasting.

Not clean

Not good for a family podcast
