-Rocketjets007, Canada

My 45 minute commute through Northern Ontario (Canada) just got a whole lot better thank's to That Triathlon Show. The content, guests, delivery etc.. has fueled a fire that has been smouldering for years and inspired me to dive into the world of Triathlon as a participant. Fantastic show Mikael that I look forward to cuing up every morning. Thank You!

-Tri-Dragons Coaching, UK

The highlight of my listening week, currently probably the single greatest podcast resource for triathlete's of all levels. Incredible guests and a fantastic, approachable presenter with great ideas. Keep it up Mikael!

-Gspo13, UK

​Mikael asks the questions that no other podcasts seem to. He really gets to the specifics with his guests where other podcasters tend to avoid asking for such information. He has a healthy obsession for more knowledge and especially the knowledge that podcast listeners want to here about triathlon.

-AnduCo, Australia

I am consistently amazed with this podcast's level of depth, organisation and high interest factor. It really is head and shoulders above the rest of the market ( I listen to 4-5 other tri podcasts but their novelty has worn out in comparison). I would say that Mikael almost leads the way in terms of a new type of content template that other podcasts in other industries should emulate - it is short, punchy, efficiently predictable but incredibly well thought out. I don't know Mikael but I feel like I know him and how he interrogates topics after listening to each of his sessions at least twice.. I am likely to go through his top podcasts for a third listen.. Congrats Mikael for your efforts...

-Raccha75, US

​I started listening to this podcast a couple of months ago, and enjoyed it from the very first time. Each episode covers a different nuance of triathlon, including lots of training tips, nutrition advice, brain work.. Mikael provides scientific research results to back his statements, making this a very factual, relevant and overall interesting and stimulating listening experience. I highly recommend this podcast to anybody who wants to be an informed triathlete.

-10xAdam, UK

​My wife, suunto, polar, rovio, nokia, salmiakki, four sigmatic... and now 'that triathlon show' are some of my favorite exports from Finland. Mikael does a great podcast that balances leading scientific thinking with everyday and practical calls to action. It's now part of my routine.

Let's Build A Community

I really hope That Triathlon Show can have a positive impact on as many triathletes as possible.

Many listeners have been writing me about how they have got their entire tri clubs to listen to the podcast. If you have even just one friend or acquaintance in triathlon, please tell them about the podcast. Chances are there's at least a few epiodes that they can learn something really important from. Also, consider sharing the podcast on Social media, now and whenever a new episode is released.
