You don't look like a runner
Yes the rumours are true: this is a podcast about running and tech, and we have opinions on Bluetooth headphones.
We discuss the joys of shopping at Decathlon and the ethical problems of shopping at Sports Direct, we spend a little bit too long discussing the geography of the West Midlands, and there’s been a terrible, terrible accident. Nick tries to be a better f* __ck*ng person, Jon does not, and we finally commence Nick and Jon’s Sh*t __Bluetooth Headphone Review.
