John Jovi ,

Brilliant!

Inspiration in each and every episode! Luis claims to not be very good at hosting a podcast. He is lying….he is brilliant. Love it so much I became a patreon.

All the Goods!

So many inspirational and informative speakers on this podcast! I binge them like Oreo cookies! I have referred several friends to this podcast! Great topics!

Rod Dog Pod cast

Luis has the ability to ask the gritty questions. Beyond Ultra Running but deep into how the guest are what they are and do what they do. Way below the surface into uncharted territory.
