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.

This episode is a bit of a treat... and is very different from other episodes published.

In this instalment of BBR, Jody and David speak with Sky Sports presenter Charlie Webster about her epic charity bike ride two years ago through the Amazon which ended in near-disaster.

Just weeks later, she was lying in a hospital bed in a coma fighting for her life as she battled malaria with her mother beside her ready to say goodbye.

Seriously, this is an inspirational, shocking and kind of heart-breaking account from Charlie who doesn't pull any punches and reveals everything.

(Jody and David will tell you it's their clever, disarming interview style... but don't let that fool you)

Seriously, give this a listen. It's two hours of incredible stuff.

Oh, and the Silk Cut is only a few minutes so it's pretty much all interview.
