Writing, Training, and Entrepreneurship: The Side Quest Podcast

December 21, 2015

About the Author: Eric Bach

I’ve been fortunate to appear on several podcast over the recent weeks, and they’ve all had a unique context, flow, and topics of conversation. Earlier this week I was invited onto the Side Quest Fitness podcast with my dude Robbie Farlow.  

I’ve known Robbie for the better part of a year when we first crossed paths in Kansas City at last year’s Fitness Summit (which you should totally attend next year). 
Naturally, we drank bourbon, ate barbeque, and did copious amount of biceps curls each day.

Robbie is a smart, extremely genuine guy putting out tons of content on his podcast with guests like Dan John, his blog, and on Roman Fitness Systems. To that point, I’m convinced he’s a secret Jedi based his stunning red hair and all-around skill-set. 

We’ve been bantering back and forth about finding a time to do this podcast, so I’m excited we were able to knock it out in time for Christmas. So, you know, you have something to listen too on your way to Grandmas for the Holidays.


This podcast was a blast and I hope you enjoy: Here’s a brief synopsis of what we covered on The Side Quest Podcast:

  • How I got started in the Industry and ended up in Colorado
  • Enjoying accomplishments
  • The writing process, inspiration, and how I craft articles
  • Waking up at 3:30 am (I love coffee)
