Bespoke Chocolat

Hello you, it’s time for your regular collective mugging off from Nick and Jon. This “week” Jon’s deaf cat gets in the mix early and often, so be ready to turn down the volume on your Acoustic Veteran ERLs. We discuss things that happened at Butlins which were supposed to stay at Butlins, Nick confesses intimate secrets about his love of the band Feeder, Jon still doesn’t know the words, and we mourn the inevitable loss of (just one of) Nick’s Apple AirPods. *Please remember to physically press the like button* ## Other stuff you won't read * Donate to [Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod). * Join our [Strava club](https://www.strava.com/clubs/runnerpod) and track runs with us. * Go to [runnerpod.com](http://www.runnerpod.com) where you can look through old episodes, read show notes and blog posts. * If you have any comments, questions or thoughts please tweet us [@runnerpod](http://www.twitter.com/runnerpod) or you can email us [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).

Big Tent

"It's been a while", but we're back and so is Jon's cat, "well rounded character" listener Ross and, if you listen closely, Nick's actual landline going off in the background. We discuss both types of tent ("air tent" and "tent"), Nick is not a complicated man, Jon accepts his fate, and we receive a hostile takeover from breakout new character Scott. ## Sticker giveaway and charity fundraiser We smashed our target, so thanks to all who donated (except for Scott). The Just Giving page is still open, and the stickers are still here! If you want a sticker and you're in the UK, make a donation of £3.75 **or more** to Shelter by visiting: [https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod). Email us your address and we will send you a Runner Pod Sticker. If you're outside the UK, please email us first to discuss so we can look at the postage situation. We hope to accommodate all reasonable requests. ## This week's links * [Shock news as 23 and Me sell all the data they have on your DNA](https://gizmodo.com/23andme-is-getting-lots-of-money-from-big-pharma-to-sha-1827891890) * [Air Tents](https://www.decathlon.co.uk/C-756310-inflatable-and-air-tents) * [Roger Milla](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaAq2LcbKPY) * [E-bikes](https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/electrically-assisted-bikes-lazy-or-healthy) * Join our [Strava club](https://www.strava.com/clubs/runnerpod) and track runs with us. * Go to [runnerpod.com](http://www.runnerpod.com) where you can look through old episodes, read show notes and blog posts. * If you have any comments, questions or thoughts please tweet us [@runnerpod](http://www.twitter.com/runnerpod) or you can email us [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).

Unprivatise the lot

It's a follow-up-a-polloza! We discuss the sticker giveaway, Nick eats humble pie at the chirpractors, Jon reviews online giving websites, and we make some very rash promises. ## Sticker giveaway and charity fundraiser We made some Stickers. They're quite lovely, great quality and they feature the Runner Pod logo. [Your laptop could look like this beaut](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/1001866442415988737). If you'd like one we want you to have one and here's what you need to do...
