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.

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. 

If you have any contributions then be sure to join the Facebok group! In fact even if you don't have anything to add then definitely join it anyway, it's a lot of fun.
