Fantastic scientific approach paired with two great personalities

If you are into science and fitness, this podcast is 10/10. If data bore you, avoid this podcast entirely and don’t review it. These guys also have fantastic banter that makes even the most bookish concepts entertaining, and I respect what they are doing for the field tremendously. Highly recommend!

Horrible show

The strength and nutrition info is great…however they have a very narrow view of the world and are misinforming they’re listeners….will not waste my time….

Make more so I can up the dose

Amusing and intelligent. Clearly some other reviewers miss the sarcasm.
Please have Greg back again as a co-host.
