052 – Why I Started The MTB TRIBE PODCAST

052 – Why I Started The MTB TRIBE PODCAST

Todays Guest

Its me – Gareth Beckett – Founder and owner of the MTB TRIBE PODCAST

On episode Fifty Two I am all alone, interviewing myself about why I started the podcast, how my shoulder injury is going and what it is like to mountain bike in Malta plus other goodies!

I have been asked many times what made me want to start a podcast, if I make a living from it and why I do it. So as I am actually away this week and don’t have time to interview a guest (I would have had this done before hand if I was more organised) I thought I would take the opportunity to fill you in on the background story of why I started the podcast including some other updates.

Find Out:

  • What made me start a podcast
  • Why a mountain bike podcast
  • The highs and lows of having a podcast
  • The time and money it takes to produce
  • The average number of emails between me and a guest before we record the show
  • What the future holds for the podcast
  • How I am getting on with my injury
  • What it is like not being able to ride your bike
  • How I feel it is effecting me mentally
  • What the mountain bike scene is like in Malta
  • Great weather, great trails, what’s not to love


Thanks again for tuning in. I know this episode was a little different from the normal but I hope you found it interesting and I answered some of your questions regarding the podcast.
