Training Podcasts?

I came across some podcasts here: http://www.tri-talk.com/

While they have some drawbacks (including adverts) and certainly wont be to the taste of everyone I found enough wheat amongst the chaff to be worth listening too on long easy rides. Despite coming from a triathlete 80-90% of what is covered applies either directly or indirectly to cycling and the site has a handy index. I would recommend episode 54 if you want to hear one of the training gurus (Tudor Bompa) and 45 which has a good beginners explanation on how much you need to plan to eat during events.

Anyone got any other suggestion of good training podcasts?

    Joe Beer does one that lasts about an hour :

  • Tri-Talk gets my vote. I haven't noticed any adverts though unless you mean the references to various drinks/energy bars that Dave Warden drops in.

    I've tried numerous other podcast but have never stuck with them apart from the Joe Beer one Johnpwr mentioned. Different stlye to tri-talk and he gets some good interviews as well.

    Found this great new podcast with lots of training advice about hill climbing for anyone interested. The guy who runs it has also got a comp for a set of brand new pro tyres worth £60 and a pair of Oakley 3.0 Fives sunglasses. Not bad for free. Think he is based in liverpool as he has a report on the eddie soens the other week.
    anyway, here it is the itunes link
