For this Weekly Fourcast, we caught up with Jaybird athletes Timothy Olson, Rory Bosio, Hillary Allen, and Fernanda Maciel who are all currently in Chamonix gearing up for UTMB and TDS—some of the world’s most famous, most difficult, and most storied mountain trail races.
Check out their recommended podcasts and music, and follow along as they test themselves on two of the world’s toughest courses against the world’s best runners.
Rory’s Recommended Podcast:
Answer Me This
This is a British podcast—they go over a lot of silly facts and it’s very lighthearted, but I always learn something. You’re always learning some random thing about the universe that you can tell your friends.
Hillary’s Recommended Podcast:
I’m a huge science nerd, but you could be a science connoisseur and learn new things, or not know anything about science and learn something amazing.
Timothy’s Recommended Podcast:
Rich Roll Podcast
I’ve been on his podcast and I really like him as a human being—he’s really authentic and has heartfelt, genuine questions that really connect with the people he’s interviewing, and they really open up.
Jaybird’s Recommended Podcast:
REI Wild Ideas Worth Living With Shelby Stanger, Episode 101: Creating Art as a Couple with Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi
Great listen on what it was like to make Free Solo, creating art with a Spouse/Partner, and what drives these active creatives. Inspiring listen.
Fernanda’s Must-Listen Song of the Moment:
Daddy Yankee, China
The song that has pushed Fernanda to the limits and helped her through training for UTMB. Let’s hope it’s playing as she crosses the finish line!
The Weekly Fourcast is a series of curated podcast recommendations from our athletes, ambassadors and employees. Every week, we’ll drop a new list of four shows and episodes that you need to hear, direct from the Jaybird crew—the perfect audio fuel for the week ahead.
