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.

Finally! It's the hashing episode... with special guest Sweetheart, aka Philip Ralph (if you're wondering why he has a nickname all is explained).

Hash House Harriers are all over the world (self-styled as "drinking clubs with a running problem") and drinking is a BIG part of the draw. As a long time hasher David (aka Princess) tries to explain to Jody (aka Jody) the appeal of hashing and brings in his pal Philip (aka Sweetheart) to explain all. 

The guys talk about the origins of hashing, what actually happens on a hash and whether Jody would be an absolutely idiot to attempt to come hashing and risk being given a hideously offensive nickname.

Jody remains wholly skeptical of the whole thing throughout, while "Princess" and "Sweetheart" try to convince him of the fun communal aspect of hashing.
