Shockingly Awful
As an ultrarunner, I come back to this podcast from time to time to give it another chance. And each time, I remember why I abandoned it. Most recently, the interview with Karl Meltzer pulled me in. Who doesn't want to hear about Speedgoat's amazing feat on the AT? Instead, it was an hour of Ian interviewing Ian on how Ian felt while watching Karl's progress from Ian's computer. He interrupted Karl countless times, and wouldn't let him finish most of his thoughts. He told Karl how Karl felt, rather than asking him. It was embarrassing to listen to, honestly. All the other content I've listened to is equally narcissistic. It's a shame, because Ian clearly is passionate about something having to do with ultrarunning, and somehow gets impressive access to elite runners, but it all comes across very poorly and is generally unlistenable.Read full review »

I love the long form podcast. Ian has opened my eyes to a few challenges that I wouldn’t have otherwise considered. I always listen with an ear out for something new and a refresh of classics in the ultra scene.

I can't recommend this podcast highly enough to anyone who's into running long on trails. Ian Corless does an awesome job, and manages to draw the very best out of all his interviewees. Thanks so much for all your work, Ian!!Read full review »

Recently has started listening and went back to listen to all the back issues. Really learned a lot and helped boost my confidence going into first 100 miler.
