285 HOKA Reach Around Technology Explained
Antonio Tovar is a Field Experience Representative for HOKA and he joined Connecticut's #1 Running Instagram poster and coincidental HOKA super fan Runner Rob @Robsroadtoultra Amatruda, Phred and AFB as we tear a wide gaping hole in everything you ever thought about running shoes.  Tovar is a wealth of shoe knowledge and he is not afraid to talk shit either!  We answer all the technology questions, and ask the question "is Altra, HOKA's little bitch after introducing a non zero drop shoe?" We rage against the NIKE machine and ultimately trick Tovar into disclosing company secrets, which will be rebranded shortly into the JOKA ONE ONE DOOKIE (112), complete with BYRAM sole, short term memory foam, reach around technology, and the happy ending cushioning.

280: Dr. Jim Keane Boston Bulldogs and the Profound Satisfaction of Service
Dr. Jim Keane joins the Cultra Crew for an emotionally hard hitting, thought provoking, profound episode about life, the universe and everything. Phred, and his cat make a ruling declaring that Jim is the official winner of the 6 month guest contest. In addition to discussing the nature of addiction in all its forms, we discuss the impact of technology on social interactions and the issue of loneliness, which has been declared a national health crisis. We also discuss ethics, including the differences between satisfaction and pleasure, and the importance of human connections in this special community. We also talk old school Boston Marathon and the bandit culture, back when banditing was cool and wouldn’t get you cancelled or publicly shamed by a blood thirsty muckraking Investigation social media mob. This episode will leave you feeling recharged, and full of hope. Kind of like emotional support, and support is good! The Bulldogs are an innovative peer-to-peer collective of recovering drug and alcohol abusers and their allies who use the fellowship of the road to provide support and solidarity to others like themselves. The Club was founded in 2015 by social worker and recovering heroin addict Mike Ferrulo who, in the 1970s, used long-distance running as part of his own rehab regimen. Ferrulo's belief that the courage and tenacity that running had instilled in him could help others on their own hard path to sobriety gave rise to the Boston Bulldogs.

257: Adidas Trail Spanks Charlie
Charlie bit me and it really hurt, but not nealry as painful as this episode is. We finally got a new Sponsor, "Trail Spanks" but we are not really sure what the product is, as most people seem reluctant to talk about it in public.   We do talk about Adidas releasing a $500 shoe that is really only meant for one race effort. How much will this change the pricing structure of running shoes and how will it impact folks trying to qualify for Boston?  Top 4 tips of ultra running that you wont read about in Canadian Trail Fishing Magazine. We also talk about Vermont 50, Nipmuck, Grindstone, and other happenings. (Although we fail to mention the Sam Tiberious Kirk placed 4th at Grindstone 100) And we hit the Patreon list hard!   Episode 60 with Carly Eisley  Vermont 50 Results Get your official Cultra Clothes and other Cultra TRP PodSwag at our store!
