Podium picks ALL DAY
First off, every episode has great content and discussion! But, I live for the podium picks, easily my favorite episodes. The last one with Chyna was awesome, I fist pumped when she said Gaston because it was such a great pick! Adding the athletes as guest pickers has added a lot to the segment. I approve, and look forward to the next one.
Very informative but...
I do enjoy listening for updates and review of all things going on in CrossFit but sometimes there are some head scratching moments. Sometimes they’ve completely on their thoughts from one podcast to the next without acknowledging why changed. Also, very long ads although it’s nice that they’re at the beginning and it’s easy to skip through.
Not enough fitness?!?
Love both of these guys as commentators; however, the podcast needs work.
First, the ads are ridiculous. So many ads!! Is there any way you guys can cut back a bit or at least make them shorter??
Second, aside from talking about how amazing athletes are, you guys rarely talk about fitness and give the, highly driven crowd that listens to this podcast, any useful takeaways.
Third, can we niche down to fitness only? You guys are always talking about random stuff like favorite marvel characters, dad jokes, and crazy things you saw. All that stuff has no utility for the fitness community you are trying to serve.
A great role model to follow is “training think tanks” Corpus Animas podcast. By far, the most useful fitness podcast out there.
