Show Notes

"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]).

The Buff and the Vest

Jon explains how to get everyone's attention during the Great North Run. Nick alleges he wears glasses.

Sous le bureau, le gymnase!

Grab a dongle for your weights, and help yourself to a vegan Pukka pie—it's the Christmas episode. Don't want a vegan pie? Well have one anyway. We found time to chat about home gym set-ups, had a little festive chat, and uncovered yet more crippling social anxiety from Nick's past. Like the show? Show your support by supporting our favourite charities. As ever we're supporting [Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod) whose work is never more important than it is now. We'd also want to highlight the importance of the work being done locally and nationally in the UK by the various charities that work with victims of domestic abuse—the Covid pandemic has seen an increase in demand for such services and they need support to continue delivering services to those who need them. Please consider making a gift this Christmas to a local organisation or a national one such as [Refuge](https://donate.refuge.org.uk/page/51133/donate/1) ...
