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]).

Wake up wrist

You've waited too damn long for this episode for Jon to get precious about show notes. We talked a lot about his watch, and a bit about Panini albums. Or maybe we didn't. That bit might have got cut. Things to do: * Make sure you watch Halt and Catch Fire soon * Join our running club on [Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/runnerpod) * Jon wrote up how he feels about his headphones for a thing he never finished. Read that on the [blog](http://runnerpod.com/b/363f21f330de28/) See you next "week". Thanks to our hosting company Podiant for getting us into your ears.

WrestleMania, running to survive

Just like that, just like that, we're here to chat shit about fitness, running and tech. This "week" we teach you a life hack to be Andy Serkis on the cheap and get our excuses in for a series of terrible runs. We refuse to apologise for an extended chat about JavaScript, Nick does some ERL learning the hard way, Jon has no mates on Strava, and we almost certainly over promise on the show notes (which none of you read anyway). - [Pronation, explained](https://www.runnersworld.com/running-shoes/pronation-explained) - [Gait analysis](https://www.runnersneed.com/expert-advice/gear-guides/gait-analysis.html) - [Footbalance custom insoles](https://www.footbalance.com/) - [Vue.js](https://vuejs.org/) - [The Mania Half](http://themaniahalf.co.uk/) results are in - [Jon's WrestleMania ear worm](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_hYvj_g3w) - [Vote for us in this nonsense](http://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote) just like [Jillian did](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/985282970402590721?s=09) - Be [Jon's friend on Strava](https://www.strava.com/athletes/jonhickman).

The Woke XI

Live from the echo chamber, Nick and Jon are back and woker than ever. This week we refine our sales pitch which can now be delivered by bike. We go deep on follow up, set some challenging goals, and go back to the drawing board on fitness watches. Nick has ordered new headphones, Jon just needs to try harder, and we wait for our advertising plans to go “woooosh” and _literally_ let all the air in. ## Show notes * Graeme Le Saux was often cast as an outsider within football for his _Guardian_[reading sensibilities and "sensitive" nature](https://www.theguardian.com/football/1999/may/15/newsstory.sport10). Here he is [discussing banter and changing room culture](https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/oct/12/footballer-banter-donald-trump-locker-room-insults). * We could be the [St Pauli](http://edition.cnn.com/2010/SPORT/football/08/18/football.st.pauli.punks/index.html) of village cricket * Nick [should have gone and got a Grey Nicholls bat](http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/cricket/8550680/A-boyhood-dream-my-own-bespoke-bat.html) * [The Tag smart watch can be traded for a proper one after 3 years](http://www.t3.com/reviews/tag-heuer-connected-watch-the-best-android-wear-watch-ever ) * [How to read and understand vo2 max](https://www.wareable.com/health-and-wellbeing/vo2-max-guide-understand-and-increase-789) * A quick tour of [Garmin's stats dashboard](http://runreporter.com/running-gear-reviews/garmin/garmin-connect-review/).
