After a brief discussion of Lee’s progress on the Monarch’s Way, the guys talk about David’s ambitions to be a Celebrant which would give him to power to marry people (without their consent sometimes).

Twenty minutes in the guys give a formal intro to the podcast and then discuss the topics for today’s episode.

Jody runs very far, we find out his experience of this and how it compares to other races he’s done and David yells at people at London Marathon. All of the yelling is very justified.

Yes, it's the SPECIAL you've been waiting for... 

The guys speak to Do-Badder Lee-stuart Evans while he's en-route to the start of The Monarch's Way Ultra - a 615-mile race along one of the country's longest trails.

Lee talks about the ridiculous challenge he's facing, what he's going to eat, how he's going to cope with running on his own for two weeks and why he needs the Do-Badders to help keep him motivated.

Yes, it's the final part of the Do-Badder A-Z and the guys kick off with none other than R and "Marathon Man" Rob Young right through to Z and the 0.0 race.

But that's not before, Jody and David discuss the latest sub-2 hour marathon attempt and whether they think it's a good or bad thing.

In this episode the guys discuss the recent MdS with the person who came 3rd place, Captain Tom Evans! This Brit came from, seemingly, nowhere and did incredibly well on his first ever multi-day ultra. He's certainly one to look out for in the future and the guys discuss his training and experience of the race.

After the main interview there's a recap of the progress of some of the Do Badders who did the Marathon des Sables this year and then some talk of this year's Running Awards.

Jody and David are joined by Tom Davies an adventure racer who has taken part in not one, but TWO insane world championships. They discuss the dangers that he faced such as crocodiles, white water rivers, and, perhaps worst of all, riding a bike. Despite Jody's dismay at the fact that David got a cyclist on the podcast, this turns out to be an episode not to be missed. If you've never heard of adventure racing before this is a nice (and inspiring) overview of a sport that can be both strategic and exciting.

In this BBR Special Jody and David talk to John Kelly, endurance athlete and the only finisher at this year's Barkley Marathons.

John reveals his journey from not running to competing at Barkley three times until he finally achieved his goal of finishing, how he trains for Barkley and the mind games you go through when you're out on the course.

David isn't subtle in trying to pump him for all the information he can about entering, while Jody sees many parallels with his 4 Laps of Nuts drama (no-one else does, though...)

Just like last week, Jody and David were worried. New listeners have flocked to the podcast in their tens, but how would they keep up with the obtuse in-jokes without alienating the new audience?

Well, as one smart Do-Badder suggested, they decided to record an A-Z of Bad Boy Running jokes covering all the references and in-jokes that have been made throughout the previous episodes so that it all makes sense!

This was advertised as a two-parter but, due to the sheer quantity, will now end up being a three-parter. Perhaps U should be for Unfulfilled Promises, right Josh?

Jody and David were worried. With all the new listeners, how were they going to continue making obtuse in-jokes and not alienate the audience?

Well, as one smart Do-Badder suggested: why not record an A-Z of Bad Boy Running covering all the references and in-jokes we made in all the previous episodes so it AL MAKES SENSE.

(Of course, you could listen to all the previous episodes but this is a much more effective way of aggressively cornering your way to Do-Badder expertise...)

This may be useful if you're training for a marathon, ultramarathon, the Marathon des Sables or any OCR race (for SEO purposes, of course).

Today the guys talk to Colin McCourt, a former pro-athlete who is documenting his transformation back into shape. His friends have all bet him £100 that he can't do a sub-16 minute 5k by the end of this year. If he wins, that's a nice windfall, if he loses, he has to get seventeen first and second names tattooed on his body. 

David and Jody start off with the basic questions about how's training going, whether it's realistic, before, in classic Do-Badder style, they veer off course and end up talking up about how social media could be used by those who are of a higher profile to bring more attention to the sport.

Have you ever considered changing styles? Will it make you more efficient? Will you be a faster runner? Having switched styles in the past David offers his view on why he did it, having had run-ins with shoes that forced him to change running styles, Jody explains why he hasn't. All of this as well as barefoot running, Chi Running and the seemingly oxymoronic 'barefoot shoes' are discussed in what turns out to be a dangerously informative podcast.

On the advent of the Winter Nuts Challenge, Jody and David welcome back Pete Rees from Mudstacle to give some last minute tips to Jody who is taking on all four laps.

It turns out Jody hasn't factored in a few important points, such as the cut-off time, and the chaps ponder whether he's actually going to make it.

Pete also fills us in on his epic Marathon des Sables training, including running the Pilgrim's multi-day ultra and running part of the Monarch's Way overnight to prepare for the long day.

If you're running Nuts or the MdS, you've got to listen to this episode.

Remember, it could be the last one Jody appears in....

This Podcast features James Appleton talking to the guys about, well, everything really. They cover Tough Guy, fell running, and photography. The guys also hear an EXCLUSIVE piece of news from James, so listen out for that nearer the end. This interview is so packed with information that the intro is possibly breaks the BBR record for being one of the shortest we've ever done. Listen up and get ready to think about planning your next holiday in the Lake District.

In this interview the guys get the chance to talk to one of the coolest, toughest people on the planet. Lowri Morgan is one of only 6 people (ever) to finish the 350 mile non-stop marathon in the Arctic and not only can she survive extreme cold, she can do heat too as she finished in the top 10 on her first ever ultra in the Amazonian jungle. 

She has won BAFTAs, jumped out of planes, and she has met the Queen. Her incredible achievements are matched by how down-to-earth she is and this chatty, relaxed podcast is almost the opposite of the BBR way since it is both informative and useful. This is one interview you do not want to miss.

The main themes for this podcast are the final ever Tough Guy and advice for this stage of training for spring marathons. When I say themes, I use it in the loosest possible sense as everything is discussed really. Special Forces Hell Week is back on so that requires a brief analysis, we discover that David hates Seinfeld, and, rather generously, the guys spend about 20 minutes plugging other podcasts. 

When they get around to discussing marathon training, they are actually quite helpful. What is the Maffetone method? What should you be eating? How many miles should you be logging before that upcoming spring marathon? Rules are debunked and approved in this genuinely quite useful episode.

This episode begins with the discussion of a saga that unfolded on the Facebook group. After an unnoticeable seg, they move on to the Inaugural BBR Brewdog Half-Marathon which Jody was involved in. 

David then takes us through what he's been up to; from his Pato filled presentation at the MdS Expo in London, to his abuse (and slight faux pas) at the darts, to his marathoning success. 

There's another call for ideas for the 12 labours of Josh Stephens and these can be submitted over any of the following formats:
