Host Buzz Burrell and new co-host Zoë Rom ask each other rapid-fire questions to get to know one another and share hot takes about the best trails, races, and the proper length for running socks.

Zoë interviews social media star and professional runner Mikey Mitchell about adventure and authenticity online, his big race season, and why raves are great training for ultras. Mikey shares what Pride Month means to him and how everyone can embody pride on the trails and online.

Next, Buzz interviews Born to Run Race Director and photographer Luis Escobar about what it takes to assemble a great event and the hard work required to capture iconic running images. We take a deep dive into his historic photo of Scott Jurek at the Copper Canyon Ultras, and why he thinks social media competition is a good thing.
