    EP. 31: A Conversation with Ultra-Marathon Runner/Michael Wardian

    EP. 31: A Conversation with Ultra-Marathon Runner/Michael Wardian

    A conversation with Michael Wardian ultra-marathon runner and holder of multiple marathon world records.

    He’s an ultra-marathoner and also an endurance coach that has racked up a pretty phenomenal record of marathon and ultra-marathon finishes and records. He’s completed double digit 100 mile + ultra-marathons, and is the world record holder for the World Marathon Challenge where he ran 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days at an average time of 2:45:57.

    We talk about his origin story. We spend the lion share of the time talking about running, nutrition and training science and attempt to deconstruct how it is that he’s able to perform the way he does.

    We talk about where he’s at now in life and some of the next big running endeavors.

    Michael gives his running advice to non-runners and experienced runners allowing runners of all abilities to get something valuable out of the podcast.

    EP. 29: A 2020 Retrospective of Science Denial w/Coach Tony Rich

    EP. 29: A 2020 Retrospective of Science Denial w/Coach Tony Rich

    A retrospective and commentary of 2020 and a review of the existential challenge of science denial.

    Looking back at the previous year I attempt to disentangle the elements of groupthink that lead to science denial, conspiracy theory, and toxic tribalism.

    A look and critical analysis of reasons given for medical skepticism and reluctance to trust medicine.

    I dive into the recent Pew Research data describing behavior and intentions towards getting vaccinated.

    I discuss a rubric that assists in navigating the environment and determining where to stand.

    EP. 28: The Growth of Indoor Cycling and Training w/Dr. Allen Lim, PhD

    EP. 28: The Growth of Indoor Cycling and Training w/Dr. Allen Lim, PhD

    A conversation with Dr. Allen Lim, PhD. He is a sports physiologist, cycling coach, and a founder of Skratch Labs. He’s lent his expertise to Saris and was instrumental in their product development of power meters and indoor cycling trainers. He was also a director of sport science for Garmin and RadioShack cycling teams and is the only American scientist to have worked and cooked for teams at the Tour de France. Dr. Lim has also worked with dozens of top American cyclists to improve their performance and nutrition.

    We discuss the global pandemic moving more people to train indoors and in isolation and the impact. We talk about the benefits of training indoors and address common questions regarding how close a relationship does indoor training have to training outdoors. Dr. Lim offers his perspective on where indoor training and fitness is going.

    We talk about how the co-evolution of wearable technology, big data and AI and how it is reshaping the entire fitness and coaching businesses and where it may lead to in the future.

    We get into bike geometry and whether or not all for the new “super bikes” have any real measurable benefit to the triathlete to justify the high costs.

    We discuss nutrition and how all of the data we have now with indoor training technology may inform athletes nutrition and fueling decisions.

    We discuss Scratch Labs, a company Dr. Lim founded as a nutrition, fueling and nourishment company for athletes that is best known for its hydration mix.

    EP. 27: Ultra-Marathon Swimmer and World Record Holder Chloë McCardel

    A conversation with Chloë McCardel who is an ultra-marathon swimmer and one of the greatest marathon swimmers of all time male or female. She’s done the world-famous English Channel swim (a 21 mile swim) 37 times surpassing even the male record. She’s even done it three times in a week and also did a triple non-stop crossing. She holds the world record for the longest unassisted swim, (77 miles long taking over 40 hours to complete).

    She's an international ambassador, keynote speaker, and global swim coach. Chloë is a strong advocate for the empowerment of all people especially women and girls and speaks out against domestic violence.

    We talk about her accomplishments including the English Channel swims and the longest unassisted swim.

    We discuss the never-ending chase endurance enthusiasts have with the next big endeavor and all of the sacrifices and challenges that come with it. How she deals with it and what her plans are in this area.

    We talk about some of the issues she’s passionate about including her very personal fight against domestic violence.

    Chloë puts on her coaching hat and she gives her perspective on improving swimming, open water swimming and dealing with open water swim fear and panic.

Listen, learn, be inspired

There is passion here to not only educate (a high bar easily achieved with these podcasts) but to create many on ramps into increased wellness through the science of self propelled motion. Tony finds experts and translates these findings to inspire your personal transformation. Listen learn be inspired!

The science of self-propelled motion!

While there are many sport podcasts, there are none that cover this range of topics for a broad range of listeners.

Rich Content:Great Podcast!

I’m a professional musician with little experience as an endurance athlete and I enjoy listening to this podcast. While the main focus of this podcast is endurance sports, I find that as Tony engages professionals from a variety of disciplines, the conversations are fruitful, often rich with great stories and insights beyond the endurance arena. Great to listen to on my morning runs. I especially enjoyed the podcast with Kathrine Switzer. As a woman, I found this one to be especially inspiring!
