Anyone listening to it? Much as I hate to admit it, it is really pretty damn good. Doesn't really talk cycling or his past, but has some really great guests. The episodes with Seal (yeah, that Seal) and Malcolm Gladwell are excellent.

I listen to it off iTunes....I'm sure it is available through Android, as well.

Agreed. Not bad at all. I thought the Bo Jackson interview was awesome.

I've listened to a few. Some of his guests are very intriguing. Ben Harper, Seal, Bo Jackson, Malcom Gladwell, and Rahm Emanuel come to mind. He comes across sometimes as thoughtful and wants to appear to be intellectual but he's a step behind some of his guests on that front. It was funny to hear both Jackson and Emanuel call him a pussy, even jokingly.

I'm turned off by his lifestyle which seems to involve flying all over the place and visiting his bros (but maybe in his shoes, I'd do the same). He also wants to allude to his "situation over the past few years" at least once each show.

As a host, he's pretty solid. Talks clear and doesn't stammer and mostly keeps the conversation focused on the guest. I listen to a lot of podcasts and his is pretty good. I'm waiting for the Landis episode

Agreed with almost everything CP said...dunno if his lifestyle is as much of an issue for me. It kinda is what it is, IMO. But i get the sentiment.

Was kinda turned off by his year-end podcast. Kinda seems like the whole podcast was a bit of a hoodwink to get people into the idea of what "Wedu Sports" will be and get back into the good graces of the ensurance sports community.
