So many running podcasts have done episodes on strength training and trust me I’ve listened to all of them. Koopcast’s latest two part series on strength training was THE BEST, most comprehensive and easy to follow summary I’ve heard on the topic. Major kudos!

Tons of quality and scientific based information to help you be a better runner, athlete, and coach. Can’t recommend this podcast enough.

Truly fantastic and relevant information to geek out on during my long runs. Great guests, great topics, a good bit of humour and a host who really loves what he does. Superb.

I listen to this podcast regularly and its fantastic and informative. As a UK based fell running coach and Ultra coach (UESCA) it keeps me upto date with the science to back up the practical application too

On koopcast you listen to the truth, the science, the experience and the honesty, without adds from sponsors or any of the commercial bs that makes all the other trail and ultra running podcasts so hard to listen to. So glad i subscribed. 100% recommended

Science, facts, with focus on what is known and what is not - without nonsense advice, with great guests, a great companion to planning my training - along with Jason Koop’s book on ultra running essentials. Worth every minute.

Jason takes an evidence-based approach to discussing all aspects of running with his guests. I’m a lifelong runner but new to the ultra world. Jason’s podcast has been an amazing window into everything I didn’t know about running and then some! He’s got a great sense of humor too. Highly recommend!

As a lifelong athlete, I love the content this podcast delivers. Koop brings true experts to his show: doctors, nutritionists, scientists, etc. So you know you’re getting credible information. His dislike of “this works for me, so this may work for you” is what I enjoy the most. He truly...Read full review »

Every podcast has usable information you can apply to your running or at least inspires further investigation!
BCR runs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/16/22
Love this podcast, the variety of speakers and issues to delve into. I highly recommend if you are into the WHY of how Ultra Running works. So many other podcasts put together by young athletes are fun, but nothing compares to REAL life experience and interesting examples! 🙌🏽
Carolina Rubio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/22
Kudos again to Jason Koop for staying away from regurgitating the same old tired “Runner of the Day” interviews and instead supplying informative & useful ultra running content. E118 and guest Meredith Terranova offer substantial nutrition advice that scientifically stand the test of time,...Read full review »

My go to podcast for ultra running info. Jason Koop knows his stuff and if he doesn’t he has a guest who does. Keep up the excellent work
smile4miles26.2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/22
I loved the episode with Luca Filipas! However, you should have made clear that the research was done on 60 men. Women run too, these days.
awybraniec via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 01/29/22
Great podcast with Luca. Thanks Jason. Best regards Martin
Sportfull via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/28/22
Definitely the best podcast since his debut. Amazing tips and content, science based, ready to use, to improve your skills as a trail runner. Thanks a lot Jason for your time, all my gratitude 🙏
Alexandre Auffret via Apple Podcasts · France · 12/09/21
Lots of great informations with many big names in the research field. Very easy to understand though. This is a must hear for endurance athletes and coaches, not just for trail and ultra runners.
Laurent Kurtzemann via Apple Podcasts · France · 11/07/21
This guy is super smart and highly entertaining/high emotional IQ. A rare combo. No other science-y podcast keeps me quite so entertained! Two thumbs up.
DannaBaxley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/21
Every time I listen to one of Jason’s podcasts I come away with helpful information. It also continues to spark my interest in ultra running, learning more, and being able to help others.
Thomas Bowling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
Coach Koop does a great job, he is very knowledgeable and has great guests and interesting topics. Loved this podcast from the first episode!
RPillinger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/21
Very educational, informative and relevant to those who love to train for challenging ultras. Jason has completely refactored my training approach to be truly holistic and 24/7. He emphasizes key points that are paramount to success.
whaleboy23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/22/21
As a layman when it comes to science I learn so much from these podcasts. Also the specific training information for someone who can’t afford a coach is a fantastic resource which really helps my training. Thanks Koop!
mrcmrc77 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/05/21

Mr. Koop- In my own life, I often forgive myself so quickly for my shortcomings... I know a lot of others who do the same, and often that’s our best option... move on, grow. After a few night’s sleep our most cringe-worthy moments are forgotten. Yet, especially in this realm of recorded media, I...Read full review »

DeweyBeerSmith via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
Koop’s show is hands down the best out there in podcastland for real, technical trail running training and racing information. Koop is well researched, thorough, brings on the right guests, and always provides the “cliff notes” version for each given topic after the conversation comes back out...Read full review »

rushbynature via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/04/21
KoopCast is such a reliable source of empirically founded information about ultra-endurance sport. Most importantly of all, it’s always entertaining and features a huge variety of guests. Couldn’t recommend it more highly for distraction during long runs.
Runpidge via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/01/21
This podcast is the best for breaking down current research and actual science not just opinions on the latest issues in sport and providing practical applications of how to use that information in training and decisions

Absolutely love all your chats, keep them coming man

I love anything and everything running, and it’s even better when you have an incredible smart host who can interview well. I also love all things evidence based, and this podcast is full of the nitty gritty science without being pretentious and unapproachable.

WizJH1970 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
Advice and interviews from some of the top athletes, coaches and physiologists in the sport of Ultra Running. Educational, inspiring and entertaining!
runfilrun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/21
Jason Koop’s show covers a plethora of topics that every Ultrarunner wonders about at some point or another. If you’re a person that asks a lot of “why” questions & you love to learn about this sport, he’s your guy. 🙌🏻
Runterhar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/21
So many ultrarunning podcasts exists, but this is the only one that actually teaches you via science. It’s a refreshing listen for all experience levels. Only occasional criticism is that I have to concentrate to understand some international guests, but I love that Koop brings in the best of...Read full review »

I’ve really been enjoying the Koopcast! Jason does such a great job of interviewing really interesting athletes, coaches, and scientists in endurance sport. His episodes breaking down (sometimes) complicated research into digestible and actionable takeaways for the listeners is really fantastic.
elparas15 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/21
Koop always makes you think with each guest and episode. He’s honest, direct, and refuses to pull punches. Many episodes have called into question the efficacy of training and recovery modalities I had long used and sworn by. Despite getting into the weeds on the science, which despite not having...Read full review »
