The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) 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're not exaggerating by claiming this is a classic episode. We say that about every episode... but this one is a bit of a bonus as Jody and David talk about David's entry into BBC Two's Special Forces Hell Week series.

For some reason, some unsavoury characters also pop up in conversation.
