    "We are four weeks away from WTM 2021. Will you be in Laughlin? Text me when you get there (619) 485-2726. If you want to say hey and grab a picture, pre-race is best. Post-race I will be asleep." -Will

Missing WTM

I’ve run WTM four times, am not going this year, but I still listen to the podcast because I love it! This last episode was awesome and made me miss that I’m not going to WTM this year even more. Keep up the great work, and thanks for helping me to get my WTM fix.

Canesccl ,

Thank you!

Will great podcast. I’m shooting to run WTM 2022. Need to lose all the COVID weight and build up to it. I really appreciate the advice, special guests and overall motivation you provide. Keep it up! - Noel

Joshua Kujawa ,

Stellar!

Will Hicks has a voice tailor-made for podcasts (in the same ballpark as the great Ryen Russillo). His personality and charisma shine like Sirius A. Keep bringing the quality content my dude. Appreciate you!
