Podcast "Sports Nutrition the Science Podcast"



The podcast "Sports Nutrition the Science Podcast" was created as part of a seminar at the Faculty of Sports Science at the Ruhr University Bochum. The podcast focuses on topics of sports nutrition and critically examines and questions them. In the process, presenter and sports scientist Marius Kirmse and presenter and prospective sports scientist Vanessa Höffmann sit down with students from the seminar to discuss the topics.

The project was one of the winning projects in the "5x5000" competition in the summer semester 2020.


The podcast deals with current topics of nutrition in (competitive) sports. The aims are:

  • a review of the basics of nutritional energy, macro- and micro-nutrients
  • a discussion and examination of topics specific to sports nutrition
  • a debate of the relevance of certain types of nutrition, intake quantities, the right timing, supplements and more.

The podcast is also aimed at non-athletes.
