The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as the technical.

We attempt (and fail) to be semi-serious in this episode of Bad Boy Running as we discuss our running goals...

... while poking fun at David's dating situation.

Here's how Episode 2 rolled:

00:14 David announces major investment due to serious disappointment with last episode’s theme tune

00:55 Jody ruins the internet with some shocking white boy rapping and chooses the rapper who’ll play him in a film (if he’s still alive…)

21:30 David lays down a massive goal for running the Marathon des Sables while Jody talks up his big challenge for the next 12 months, including cracking his marathon time

27:25 Jody predicts the success of this podcast will ensure his and David’s place on the celeb start at London Marathon

 Bad Boy Running Episode 1 Part 2

Continuing from Episode 1, Part 2 kicks off following Jody's revelation about how running Brighton Marathon with only 90 minutes notice was hands-down his worst marathon experience. Now it's David's turn to reveal his worst race experience.

The action continues…

  • 01:05 David confesses to being about to tell a really bad joke… but then in revealing it, still manages to cause offence without gaining any benefit
  • 02:29 David explains his worst race… without being able to name neither the race nor the start and end points of the race.
  • 03:40 Why, as a race organiser, it’s not a great idea to get a bunch of squaddies on your bad side (things go from bad to worse)
  • 04:28 David accidentally reveals the starting location… and pleads to have it bleeped out of the episode (we didn’t, of course)
  • 07:00 David explains the moment when the relay team hit breaking point, how the organiser failed to pick up on the mutiny in his midst (despite everything that went wrong) and how he’s avoided saying “yes” ever again
  • 11:29 Jody accuses David of neglecting his responsibility to the listeners… and David agrees
  • 11:58 The moment we realise Bad Boy Running was a terrible name choice for the podcast (and we beg you to think of the podcast as gender neutral)
  • 12:36 Where we open it up to you to let us know what your worst race was… and the kind of stuff we’re looking for
  • 13:26 David reveals the incredibly “high tech” way you can give your opinion and feedback on the show and reads out letters from non-existent listeners
  • 14:48 In a confusing twist, Jody reveals where he gets his hair cut (and how he shares his salon with a very important local figure)
  • 15:45 Why you may want to revisit this episode if we ever make it to Episode 150 (we’re being a touch hopeful here)
  • 16:08 David recklessly invents an email address and asks listeners to send their feedback, possibly prompting an avalanche of spam to an unsuspecting individual (If your name is Mr BadBoyRunning, watch out…)
  • 17:09 Why you need to use the #BadBoyRunning hashtag on twitter
  • 18:12 David has a sudden realisation that transforms the podcast recording into a romantic drama
  • 18:57 What happens next? The episode ends on a cliffhanger…

Bad Boy Running Episode 1 Part 1

Hurrah, it's here! The Bad Boy Running Podcast kicks off with this two parter.

In Episode 1 Part 1, you'll experience:

  • 00:23 David and Jody say hello… and David is instantly given a lesson in social media technology.
  • 00:42 David’s GCSE Music grade C skills come to the fore when he unveils Bad Boy Running’s inaugural theme tune, while Jody’s anticipation of the theme tune almost gets to him
  • 01:52 David unveils the Bad Boy Running Podcast theme tune… to much fanfare (and bemusement)
  • 03:05 Why Bad Boy Running is just like Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and why Jody and David have a special message for those people listening in from the future
  • 03:34 The purpose and title of the podcast is questioned when after three and a half minutes,  “running” is only mentioned for the second time
  • 04:08 David explains the idea behind Bad Boy Running… and then starts making wild, unsubstantiated claims about our running knowledge and expertise
  • 06:00 Why you may want to tune out right now if your primary aim was to learn something about running…
  • 06:15 Jody (badly) introduces David
  • 08:26 David introduces Jody (much better)
  • 10:53 Jody explains how he first met David
  • 11:13 Why Jody has been christened the Karl Pilkington of the running press
  • 12:07 Jody explains his personal experience of the Sierra Leone Marathon including his “rustic” hotel and why he forced to hand over his race winnings… for a bucket of water.
  • 17:05 Jody reveals the worst race he’s ever run (it’s not so much the race, but the lack of preparation beforehand that made it an ordeal…)
  • 18:33 Why it’s impossible to offer Jody a race and say no… and an irresistible offer for listeners to put him to the test

And thus, it ends for now.

Download or listen to Episode 1 Part 2 to hear David’s worst race experience and experience once of the best endings to a podcast episode… EVER.

Bad Boy Running Episode 0

 

Now this is a super-short introductory episode to the Bad Boy Running Podcast.

David and Jody spend less than 5 minutes explaining why the Bad Boy Running Podcast is different from all your usual running and marathon podcasts and how you’ll benefit from subscribing and listening.

They also preview the kind of high brow, pseudo-intellectual musings you can look forward to hearing in the future… ahem.

If you can’t even be bothered to listen to that, here it is in a nutshell:  

Bad Boy Running is a nowhere-near professional but funny podcast during which we (occasionally) talk about running.

If you take running a bit too seriously, you may want to steer clear.

Go on, give it a quick listen.
