Show Notes

After the Rian Johnson inspired avant-garde episodes 18 and 19, we settle back into a more accessible edit. This week we have a live reveal of our Great North Run ballot results. We talk Bluetooth headphones, Jon gets a nosebleed from playing at the highest level of football he’s ever reached, and we make plans to discuss our favourite running movie, The Barkley Marathons. Nick has fallen for the advertisers' tricks, Jon keeps things really clean, and we fail to get to grips with the millennial space race. * [Jon talks Trainspotting on Via VHS](https://viavhs.podiant.co/e/35ea8513598e2e/) * [Hindenburg | Radio editing software](https://hindenburg.com/) * [OnePlus says up to 40,000 customers were affected by credit card security breach - The Verge](https://www.theverge.com/2018/1/19/16908990/oneplus-credit-card-security-breach-investigation-40000-affected) * [Discussion of voice synthesisers on Beware of the Leopard](http://btlpodcast.com/e/35ee305d3c9e12/) * [Star Tours the Adventure Continues: Star Wars Attraction | Disneyland Paris](http://www.disneylandparis.co.uk/attractions/disneyland-park/star-tours-the-aventures-continue/) * [South Staffordshire FA Veterans (Division 2)](https://fulltime.thefa.com/ff/LeagueDetails?leagueid=19643855) * [Jon’s headphones](http://amzn.to/2C1Nffo) * [Nick has ordered the “Ultimate Zero-Compromise Total-Wireless Earphones” on Indiegogo](https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ultimate-zero-compromise-total-wireless-earphones--2#/) Next time we will discuss The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young—[watch it now on Netflix](https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80076413) or [buy it on Amazon](http://amzn.to/2nQSmdk).

Little snowflake, reading his Transformers book

It’s time to kick off your trainers and grab yourself a nourishing bowl of nonsense soup. This week Nick attempts to talk himself down from a major purchase by reading its tech specs and features out on mic. We talk about our broken old man backs, plan some dream desk setups, and go shopping for Lycra at Poundland. Jon drops an easy catch, Nick accepts that he just likes running, and we really hope that someone plays the noise.
