Full kit. Blood everywhere...

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).

I'm a man, not a contact!

Back by popular demand, we present _Nick’s Shit Bluetooth Headphone Review_. Yes, this week Nick goes into detail on his new Apple AirPods. We reminisce about early 2000s route planning websites, cut a swathe through follow up, and pit £160 Bluetooth ear buds against £20 ones. Nick is having an identity crisis, Jon finds out if he’s running the London Marathon, and we fail to find out the age of WWE legend The Undertaker. ## Show Notes * Email us like Joe from Texas did [email protected] * Nick doesn’t live on a [trap street](https://gizmodo.com/the-fake-places-that-only-exist-to-catch-copycat-cartog-1695414770)—his road is very big and real. * [You really shouldn’t address things to people by their nickname. Or send stuff to their cat](https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/cat-needs-id-for-package-pickup_us_56682b0be4b080eddf56359f). * [Occupational surnames](http://brilliantmaps.com/european-surnames/). * [The Undertaker is 52](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Undertaker). * [Taker’s AirPods](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/917790669409792000). * [How do they fit in your ears](https://m.xkcd.com/1899/)? * [The W1 chip](https://9to5mac.com/guides/w1/) (we misspoke it as A5, that’s a tablet/phone chip). W1 is common to AirPod and BeatsX (also Beats Solo3 and Powerbeats3). * Our evergreen pic for running Bluetooth headphones: the [aLLreLi Soba](https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bluetooth-Headphones-Retractable-Foldable-Universal/dp/B015XLF8BQ/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1502308693&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=allarelli+bluetooth&linkCode=sl1&tag=likearunner-21&linkId=707901223a99f1ae6273ebf280184a0f). * VLM18 London Marathon, [ballot and entry FAQs](https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/faqs/). * Jon wrote an essay [about how Birmingham invented the London Marathon](http://runnerpod.com/b/357b730a6c9046/)—there are actual facts in it, it's an interesting bit of history. * [Quickly Kevin, will he score?](https://www.quicklykevin.com/), our new favourite 90s football podcast.
