Podcast Spotlight – Talk Ultra

Aspiring to do an ultra? Or interested in what the fastest in the ultra world are up to? Maybe this podcast is for you.

Talk Ultra is a professionally edited podcast with world class ultra athletes doing long interviews. Ian Corless, the British host, digs deep into the running lives of these crazy runners. He also goes to a lot events and reports with his amazing photos on his website.

There is a host of advice for runners about running, about races around the world, and about how to do it better. This is not a scientific analysis of running, it is often a detailed recap of races from racers who are near the front of the pack.

And of course a podcast about ultras just can’t be short. This one often is 2.5 to 3 hours long with many interviews taking up at least half an hour. I guess it is meant to be listened to on your very long runs.

“Talking your legs off”

I listened to this podcast many times before my first ultra and now that I have done a few I am still gaining wisdom from the pros who contribute to this program.

Talk Ultra – Give it a listen and see what you think.
