Episode Notes:


This doesn’t seem to be available yet on Podcast Apps, correct? Just making sure I’m not missing it.


There is a separate podcast for successful athlete podcasts.

Then they need to fix the Soundcloud link in the lost above, because that points to the AACC page. @Tucker?

I know that it is supposed to be a separate podcast, but I am not seeing it (either under TR at all or by searching “Successful Athletes” and other variations - though Keegan’s comes up) on Spotify, Google Podcast, or Soundcloud. There is certainly the possibility that I am just totally incapable, but I haven’t found anything yet.

I searched “trainerroad” on apple podcasts and it popped up right away, but maybe it is not on the others yet for some reason.

For reference, here is a pic of Soundcloud, the main TR channel and full track list by release date (newest on top). It includes the first “Successful Athletes” episode, so I would expect

  1. The new ones should show here.
  2. or TR needs to make a new channel and split stuff appropriately.

Here’s the link on Apple podcasts:
