First, Ben is joined by the pun-master general, Tommy Zaferes for a fun session that included topics such as the new Real Coaching Podcast, the PTU, Messick's email to pro triathletes and more. Of course they ended with a laundry list of jokes delivered over tuba music. 

Next up, former Olympian, Sarah Haskins joined Ben and talked about her win at the Miami 70.3 a couple of weekends ago, her career, and whether or not she'll consider being a domestique for race favorite Gwen Jorgensen in Rio. 

1hr and 21 mins into the program, TRS Racing member, Melissa Alfano, caught up with Alyssa Godesky over beers following the Beach to Battleship race.

1hr and 55 mins into the show, Chris Rohde interviews Kirill Kotsegarov, the 2015 Ironman Chatanooga Champion. This race ended with perhaps the greatest sprint finish in Ironman History. Ultimately, Kirill beat Matt Chrabot.
