    This is my favourite running podcast. Why didn’t I find it sooner? I have been listening religiously since I discovered it a few months ago. Long may it continue!

  • This isn't a bad podcast, the original iteration of Marathon Talk was wonderful, it was what running is best at, an open accepting community all supporting each other. more

  • Revived to Advertise AWMM

    A shadow of its former glory, feels heavily scripted and condemned to mention the Abbott World Marathon Majors at every available opportunity. I assume the podcast was revived as a marketing tool leveraging the reputation of the original format. Won’t be listening in the future I’m afraid (it’s painful!)

  • Not good

    Abott majors, that’s it. No other running events exist. There’s no chemistry between the 2 presenters seems very fake and scripted in my opinion.
