About The Faster Podcast

Faster with Bill Chambers, is a podcast dedicated to inspire and challenge Masters Rowers, to learn and evolve, and to help them to go faster. It is downloaded by an audience around the world, with thousands of listeners in North America, Western Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific.

Each episode, I meet and have conversations with world-class performers from Rowing and business, to understand and explore, what it is that they do, highlight the tactics, tools, and routines you can use, and to challenge and inspire you to go Faster.

Guests enjoy the show because it’s friendly, long-form, and they have final cut before audio is published. This leads to extremely open, raw interviews and paradoxically, fewer edits.
