Great content but need to limit distractions
I recently started listening and episode with Melissa G had notification noises during entire recording. Very distracting. Should set to host or guest to have limited background noise.
one of the best!
This is one of the best fitness podcasts. Robbie is a very thoughtful interviewer, very intelligent and not much fluff. I like his focus on evidence. Many of the fitness podcast out there are poor with hokie material, but not this one. Nice work!
Host is awful.
Host mumbles and is more interested in a bro sesh. It is clear he does a lot of prep work. But he is not clear and the guests do not always speak into the microphone. Stop trying to be too cool for school. I'm there to get educated by your guests, not to listen to you boast about how great you are and who you know. Also topics tend to be very young and male centric. Guess what? Most of us are not both young and male. Take a public speaking class.
