Great topics and great interviews make this podcast a must.

I’ve listened to three pods so far. In those three podcasts, I’ve learned more about running and training than in the last 5 years. I’m a runner with almost 50 years experience. I’ve run as a novice, a sub elite 10k competitor in the 70’s and as a masters. I can honestly say that this podcast is...Read full review »

This podcast offers so much more than ultra-running relevance. As an endurance triathlete, this has actually become one of my go-to podcasts due to the quality of the podcaster; Shawn presents with intelligence with a style that communicates quiet dignity and humility. The quality of the guests...Read full review »

Just came across this podcast and truly enjoy it. No fluff, just helpful and interesting info if your into running some miles and staying healthy.

The Coaches Corner episodes are 5 star, they’re all fantastic. When it’s just the host doing the episode, it sounds like he’s just reading a script, and I’d rather read the blog post. It’s still great info and some good interviews, and any trail runner should at least try out it.

The best ultra running podcast. Period. Just pure actionable insights based on the latest academic research to improve your running.

Great education, also you can apply things to your own training

Shawn gets to the nuts and bolts along with the craft of endurance training. It is not just ultra running and Shawn helps to explain the scientific details as it relates to training and coaching. Expect to re-listen to the episides like referencing a textbook. The interviews with researchers are...Read full review »

Shawn is a delight, and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to almost every show on Science of Ultra. If you want to have the tricky science stuff of running conveyed clearly, simply and kindly this is a must listen. The show is a little clunky in the early episodes but quickly hits it stride.
Clive_dale via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/19/19
As an Ultrarunner and RD I find these podcasts excellent. Delivering science based information to not only help my own training but also athletes I work with. I also referred a friend to Shawn’s podcast who ended up signed up for his coaching services and he has only had great things to say!...Read full review »

This podcast is full of helpful information. No BS banter just what you need to know. Good listen.
WTReed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/19
I have listened to every single episode of this podcast (and most of them multiple times) because Shawn provides fact-based and actionable content. If you are looking for a podcast that will debunk the myths of the sports/ultra running world and remind you why you’re freaking awesome, look no...Read full review »

I think I've listened to every one of these podcasts now and find them super informative. Shawn brings the best folk in for interviews and is always striving to educate us on every aspect of ultra-running. The science is interesting but so is the real life experiences of runners who are...Read full review »

Lessons and learnings that have improved my training, recovery, sleep and ultimately my race performances. A must listen for anyone wanting to stretch your running goals. It has also helped my mindfulness and calmness in day to day interactions
MickD38 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/28/19
I’ve learned so much from this podcast. Listening is always a highlight. It has remolded how I think about my running. 5 stars!! I’d give it 10 if I could.

Very insightful regards the science behind how the body functions and ways in which “WE” as runners can improve our performance. A lot of real practical suggestions to improve training with evidence to back it up. Really motivates for those long runs.
CB Ultra via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/28/19
Such a fantastic resource to simply frame all the components of ultra running, providing a foundation and direction on areas to further explore. Objective, purpose driven insights and a lot of fun to listen to.

Guts that’s for putting this podcast together, coaches are great and really good content with with some many great variety of views and points on the subjects... BUT you lose a star :) every minute or so there is someone taken a massive gulp of water / coffee in the Microphone ??? :)

Ms
So you say adrenal fatigue does not exist. I wonder what is mythical about blood tests showing very clear HPA axis dysregulation and barely being able to get out of bed for weeks. But of course, you are male, and probably haven't caught on to the fact that women get affected very differently...Read full review »

I love the reminder to ask myself 1. Am I in it for the full experience and 2. How will this bring me joy BEFORE I sign up for a race— thanks!
P.Nela via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/19
Unique podcast with a great host who doesn’t waste listeners time and always delivers real, science backed info to help runners train and race effectively.

Not only a podcast about running but an education in how to relate to and interpret science.
Kukacka42 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 12/03/18
This podcast is full of super high quality content. I love the mix between actionable advice and scientific research content.
Josephine Anselin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/19/18
I’m an endurance athlete but not an ultra runner and yet many of the topics discussed are relevant to me. Well presented information even if a little dry sometimes. Anyone interested in sports science should give a listen to the relevant episodes for their particular discipline.
Sebdavid via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/06/18
A pleasure to listen to. The interviewer is very knowledgeable and uses this to great advantage when interviewing other experts. He does not show off but simply engages the expert in a way that is always helpful for an ultrarunner like me who likes to do everything possible for a good result.
Mehrensvard via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 08/03/18

Best Ultrarunning podcast. Period. Science and fact over opinion. Highly recommended.

If your background is in the medical or biological sciences you’ll enjoy this more than most. I adore it.
JohnneeBull via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/18
This podcast is incredibly well done. I've been an athlete all my life, but am fairly new to ultrarunning, and Dr. Bearden and his guests have taught me a ton. He brings in some of the world's leading scientists that often answer his questions with complex explanations, but Dr. Bearden...Read full review »

As a molecular biologist and endurance athlete, this is an incredibly informative and beneficial podcast. Great information for ultra running but it can also translate well into Cycling, Triathlon and other endurance events. Keep up the great work!

Outstanding podcast regarding not just ultra marathon, but endurance sports. Really good rational approach. Outstanding! I love it!
