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.

Hallelujah, it's here. Jody finally makes the leap and goes to a running club... but was joining the right thing to do...?

Now what were we talking about again...?

Here's the lowdown in Episode 9:

  • David admits to stalking Danny Kendall and ends up going for a run with him (and David offends everyone who has ever run the MdS who isn’t an elite runner…)
  • We discover some of the sneaky tactics the elite runners at the MdS get up to… no, really!
  • Hallelujah! Jody finally goes to his local running club, Haywards Heath Harriers… and ends up eating his words
  • David comes in for some criticism from runner at Tyne Bridge Harriers (and Jody manages to offend the entire North East with a terrible Geordie impression)
  • The chaps are wowed with a two theme tunes submitted by a listener… and they really are good.
  • David rues the quality of modern dance music (while inadvertently undermining his case by admitting he thinks The Prodigy are good)
  • David and Jody come up with a new kind of pizza based on the feedback from one listener.
  • The Bad Boy Running Podcast receives what is possibly the most accurate (but in another way wholly inaccurate) review so far
  • David admits he has a Facebook stalker and ponders whether to Friend him or whether he’s about to be the victim of a 419 scam
  • The podcast hits a landmark… by officially saying something helpful to someone as one listener reveals
  • David reveals a terrible devious side to himself in a discussion about shoes
  • Michael Jackson is mentioned (needless to say you’re only hearing a small snippet of the actual, now deleted, conversation)
  • The guys give a definitive guide to being a Bad Boy
