Excellent base of knowledge

Great resource for a variety of topics regarding ultra training and exercise physiology. Athlete spotlights provide a variety of athlete perspectives for runners of all abilities and experience levels.

Real substance, no anecdotal fluff

Shawn is consistent with great topics, subject matter experts, and making the discussion understandable to to listeners. Other podcasts try and provide substance like this, but inevitably end up with anecdotal or everyone is different conclusions. Not Shawn, he’s amazing.

This continues to be the definitive version of ultra podcasts. Straight answers. Top experts. His website has great writer information as well.
