What sets superb athletes apart from the rest of us, and can those skills apply to any endeavour? 

Ultramarathoner Christopher McDougall’s books tackle feats of endurance and heroism. Nathan Fa’avae is a four-time world champion in adventure racing, leading teams across unmarked wilderness. Ultramarathoner Lisa Tamati joins the pair as they talk to record-breaking Masters runner and author Roger Robinson about the true limits of human potential.
