Sevad ,

Great addition to my training.

Zwift and the podcast help with training regimen.

DmSweet! ,

Great interviewees but….

Love the variety of athletes that the podcast brings in, but whenever she is the interviewer, Kristen talks more than the interviewee. Nothing personal against Kristen, as she is an amazing person and athlete, but I want to hear more from the people being interviewed.

Not for me

I tried to like this podcast so many times and I just can’t. It improved a little when they brought Kristin Armstrong but still there is no chemistry between the hosts. Between that and the constant use of the word “yeah” I can barely finish an episode.
