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.

Wow, we’ve got a treat of an episode for you.

For many months, Jody and David have time and again brought up the issue of doping as the subject seems to permeate every discussion of athletic achievement. Now, to separate fact from fiction, the chaps speak to former World Anti-Doping Association deputy director general Rob Koehler who offers an inside look at the issues at hand and the state of athletics today. He also explains why he feels ALL Russian athletes should be banned at the Olympics. 

This really is an eye-opener and worth a listen. 

Rob also discusses his new role as head of Global Athlete, an athletes advocacy group with the power to stand up to brands and associations where power is entrenched (you won’t believe how bad this is until you hear his examples of this happening!).

Plus there’s some gibberish from the guys before the interview gets started.
