Minimal Multisport Podcast

A Sports, Recreation and Health podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
We’re passionate about mutlisport events, such as triathlon, adventure racing, and mixed martial arts - anything that requires multiple skills to execute well. These events are time-consuming by nature, and today’s consumption culture suggests that we need to buy lots of gadgets in order to participate - many of which only take time away from actually doing what we love. Our goal is to minimize the “work” that’s necessary for play. Finding the strategies or products that serve our goals with our limited time. Our blog and podcast explore these topics, on a quest for maximizing fun and living a full life.

Ep 19 - Minimalism and Bike Tech with Mark Hickey
This episode of the Minimal Multisport Podcast is with my friend, Mark Hickey. I’ve known Mark for quite a few years now, and he’s a fellow bicycle industry geek, and owner of my favorite bike brand, Habanero Cycles. Yes, it’s named after the spicy peppers. Mark had a career in technology before starting the company, and we get in to how it all started, his ethos behind the brand, and then we take a few steps back to look at how not only bicycles have evolved, but a wide range of consumer products. I think most people can agree that technology is getting better and helping us in many ways, there are definitely also some hidden costs – especially if you don’t have the right strategy when you’re shopping. Just one quick example, there are a lot of little gadgets that can do things for us, but it’s easy to spend way too much time reading instructions, charging batteries, calling customer service, and otherwise going directly against what the product is supposed to do – save us time, add value, and make life better. Mark is one of the few holdouts making bikes what I’d call the right way, designing specifically for high reliability and a minimum of hassle. They’re also the most affordable titanium bikes I’m aware of, making them that much better. I ride one, and it’s better than bikes I’ve tried that cost three or four times as much. Mark had a lot to say about this and much more.----------THANK YOU to this episode’s sponsor, TriRoost.com!  Go check them out to learn about endurance sports, partake in joke telling, and share pictures of your pets!THANK YOU for supporting us on Patreon!  It’s cliché but true – listener support is the only way that this show is possible!  A mere $2 per month gives you access to all of our bonus content!  Also THANK YOU for supporting the show by shopping through our Amazon affiliate banners at https://www.minimalmultisport.com/contribute/!  It adds no cost to you and we receive a small commission from your purchases.----------Check out our blog, Instagram, Youtube channel, and Facebook!----------Mentioned in the show:Check out Habanero’s website and Facebook page (@HabaneroCycles).My blog about the Minimalist Road Bike I built up this year from Habanero.My three 2019 Standards articles at Bikerumor for Road, Gravel, and MTB. My beloved Casio G-shock DW5600 – the best value and most durable watch on the planet: https://amzn.to/2MTMsHUSupport the show
Ep 18 - Traveling, Wrestling, and Philosophy with Patrick Spano
This episode of the Minimal Multisport Podcast is with my friend, wrestling coach, and Judo black belt, Patrick Barry Spano. There are a few reasons I wanted to talk to Patrick. First, he has an interesting story and has traveled quite a bit, and he fits in pretty well with the nomadic minimalist millennial theme that seems to be getting more popular by the day. Second, he is an amazing teacher and martial artist, who has really opened my eyes into wrestling, why it’s important, and how incredibly difficult it is. And finally, on a practical level, Patrick is moving very soon to Brazil, and I wanted to get him on the show before it was too late. If you’re from the martial arts world and new to this show, the elevator pitch is that it’s about bringing the two worlds of sports and minimalism together, which might sound odd at first – but it’s all about simplifying and downsizing so you can have more time to do what you want. Most minimalist programs are very general and talk about cleaning out your garage or kitchen, but hobbies and sports often get a pass, and it’s easy to accumulate too much. I interview people like Patrick who have at least some type of unique perspective on this, to hear their stories. If you’re one of my endurance sports friends, this episode might give you a peek in to the “why” behind my entry into martial arts, and how it has become a big part of my life. As a former professional triathlete, I suppose it is fitting that I got in to mixed martial arts, which is sort of the triathlon of martial arts – you have to have a wide range of skills to succeed.----------THANK YOU to this episode’s sponsor, TriRoost.com!  Go check them out to learn about endurance sports, partake in joke telling, and share pictures of your pets!THANK YOU for supporting us on Patreon!  It’s cliché but true – listener support is the only way that this show is possible!  A mere $2 per month gives you access to all of our bonus content!  Also THANK YOU for supporting the show by shopping through our Amazon affiliate banners at https://www.minimalmultisport.com/contribute/!  It adds no cost to you and we receive a small commission from your purchases.----------Check out our blog, Instagram, Youtube channel, and Facebook!----------Mentioned in the show:Follow Patrick on Instagram @pbspanoSupport the show
Ep 17 - Minimalism for Photography and Life with Chris Bucher
This episode of the Minimal Multisport Podcast is with my friend Chris Bucher.Chris is a professional photographer, ultramarathoner, cyclist – and along with his wife Jen, is one of the most dedicated minimalists I know. Chris has been a good friend of mine for round about 17 years, and we recorded this show in my living room, when Chris was recently down in Florida to shoot photos at the St Pete Grand Prix and the Super Sebring race weekend (because among other things, he does a lot of automotive photography).I really enjoyed our conversation, and I hope you do to. We talked about how he got in to minimalism, how it affects his purchases and financial planning, and how he greatly downsized a bunch of stuff that was filling a storage unit. Their condo is simple, beautiful, and very welcoming… maybe I’ll see if he can send me some photos of it for a blog post. He’s also one of the biggest influences that got me interested in photography, and has been a huge help to me assembling my minimalist camera setup – where the idea is to get the best possible photos with the smallest investment. ----------THANK YOU to this episode’s sponsor, TriRoost.com!  Go check them out to learn about endurance sports, partake in joke telling, and share pictures of your pets!THANK YOU for supporting us on Patreon!  It’s cliché but true – listener support is the only way that this show is possible!  A mere $2 per month gives you access to all of our bonus content!  Also THANK YOU for supporting the show by shopping through our Amazon affiliate banners at https://www.minimalmultisport.com/contribute/!  It adds no cost to you and we receive a small commission from your purchases.----------Check out our blog, Instagram, Youtube channel, and Facebook!----------Mentioned in the show:ChrisBucher.comFollow Chris on Instagram @BucherPhotoBuy his photography books on Amazon through the links below... it helps both Chris AND this show!Lighting Photo Workshop: https://amzn.to/2CmZ1nFBlack and White Digital Photography Photo Workshop: https://amzn.to/2Yhqf8CMy minimalist camera setup (Canon Rebel SL2): https://amzn.to/2FhBBAA  Support the show
