Talk of the T-Town
Both Joan and Andy are incredible hosts who embody a wonderful balance of good fun, humor, and serious discussion about all things track related. They give a platform to some wonderful people who give do much to the sport. And they have no problems laughing at themselves to keep it light. The duration of interviews have been perfect. Keep up the great work !
It’s awesome to feel connected to the track world when we aren’t able to be together. One of the best aspects of training and racing at TTown, as a master/stagiaire, is truly sharing the space with elite athletes and getting to know them. This podcast reminds me how wonderful these people are.
And Andy’s radio voice! It surpasses his “Matt Damon” good looks.
