I had a blast catching up with Mike to talk about all that he’s been up to since we had him on the podcast on episode 6.  On that first interview, we focused on Mike’s accident that could have kept him from running again.  We also discussed his win of all three races in the Triple Crown of 200s.  This time we talk a bit more about his low carb approach to running, his ZERO calorie 100-mile run, the Colorado Trail FKT, his Cocodona ...

AJW (Andy Jones-Wilkins) has been a big part of our sport for quite some time.  He hasn’t been afraid to make a statement both in his competitiveness on the trails and in his writing and interviews.  It was such a pleasure getting to know AJW and gain some insight into his history, methods, and mindset in ultrarunning.  I know you’ll enjoy listening in as we laugh together and unpack some of what makes our sport so great.

    • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
