Two average trail runners who love the mountains are hosting a very average podcast on this and other stuff. Featuring Mathias Eichler, Douglas Scott and friends, presented by The Outdoor Society.
How many Countries are in This Country? Ted Lasso S1 E1
Yes, we’re doing it and you are welcome. Ted Lasso, the greatest show on television deserves to be reviewed, talked about and praised by two average trail runners, because that fits our show format perfectly. We’re diving into episode one and will feature a episode each week, or so we hope. Follow along and watch Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ and, if you’re a superfan, reach out and we’ll bring you on the show. Wanker!
Trail Running’s Goth Phase
Remember the movie Innerspace from 1987? No? Well, this week we quickly chat about the new Kilian documentary Inside Kilian on Amazon Prime before we dive into training and weekly goals. We debate bringing a change of socks for ultras and then dive into shoe talk. 100 miles is a long way to go, but Mathias is getting ready as we discuss the physical and mental challenges he will be facing in Utah this April. Will he end the race with jet black hair, bangs across his forehead and dressed in full on goth fashion? Only time will tell!
Stoke in the Spring
Remember 10 hour long Youtube videos? Doug watched most of the replay of the Black Canyon 100k and shared his thoughts. We then dive into the anxiousness for trail adventures that spring brings. Mathias then talks about how incredible it is in Europe after both hosts watched a video from the Alps. Join us on Clubhouse, maybe?
Crushing on the Wonderland
What is the future of trail running? How long will we mourn for Daft Punk? After a few introductory comments, including yet another check in on Mathias’ chafed thighs, we dive into the newest Wonderland Trail video, highlighting Kaytlyn Gerbin’s FKT, presented by The North Face. Check it out and be inspired to explore America’s most-visible National Park. When in doubt, Donald Duck it.
On the Benefits Of David Hasselhoff
When did you last hear a David Hasselhoff song on the radio? After reminiscing on the golden age of radio, the guys dive in deep into a real conversation. So many gear companies and nutrition companies claim superiority over everyone else, but how does one wade through the boasting? We try to come up with an answer.

Even the King Has to Walk to the Bathroom
We are debating taking a trip to Mexico with Ted Cruz, but Doug’s eyes may still be frozen shut. Mathias is recovering slowly. Broken Arrow is moved from June to October and we wonder what races will look like this year. To end, we talk about cross training on a stationary bike and wonder if Doug will feel the benefits after a winter's worth of riding. Hey, Scott, stay for the long outro music!

If you’re interested in fast food, logo designs, website designs and expert advice on running ultras and directing races from rank amateurs, this is the podcast for you! Never run a 100? No problem neither have these two! You can still pretend you know what it’s like fantasizing about the experience in the alternate reality the hosts exist in! Wanna listen to an hour and half about how the hosts ran a monster 35 mile week? They’ve got you covered! In a word riveting!
Running but also more.
These guys are passionate about running-- and that's cool--but I come back weekly for the casual banter, public land advocacy, and no BS attitudes. It's truly enjoyable to hear the variety each week and the hilarious antics around such topics as short shorts, buns, and obnoxious clothing.
The best part of this podcast is the genuine friendship between the hosts. These guys have great respect for the environment, running and each other. Bravo!
