Nick has been ghosting Jon, Jon has been giving Nick's home media set up short shrift, and both lads are asking: if the pants people are here then why aren't you? * [Spotify Kids](https://www.spotify.com/uk/kids) * [List Envy Podcast](https://listenvypod.com/) * [Jon's List Envy Episode](https://listenvypod.com/e/top-5-things-were-leaving-behind-37f292a20c5692/) * [National Running Show Birmingham](https://nationalrunningshowbirmingham.com/) * [Tailwind Nutrition](https://www.tailwindnutrition.co.uk/) * [Polar Vantage M Running Watch](https://amzn.to/2SRdHmi) * [Barkley Marathons](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barkley_Marathons) * Bad Boy Running: [Laz Lake Interview Part 1](http://badboyrunningpodcast.com/ep-151-lazarus-lake-aka-gary-cantrell-on-barkley-marathons-part-1) and [Part 2](http://badboyrunningpodcast.com/ep-152-laz-lake-on-barkley-marathons-and-other-races-part-2) * Join us on [Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/you-don-t-look-like-a-runner-445740) * Runner Pod stickers still available if you [donate to Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod)

Between my face and my finger

Hello and welcome to You Don’t Look Like a Runner—an avant garde podcast, making unusual editing decisions and challenging your expectations of what this series is all about. This is part two of an epic new year chat which started in episode 18. This week Jon goes round the houses and Nick regrets not making a purchase. We discuss lightbulbs, voice assistants and Greggs (the baker). Nick is desperate to go to bed, Jon is not, and we spend a long time talking about the OnePlus 5T. ## A word from our sponsor Thanks to our podcasting host [Podiant](http://podiant.co/) for supporting _You Don’t Look Like a Runner_.

Get it done before the clap

Failing to read the country's mood, we met up once again to talk about fitness, running and tech. Nick has found a new dead format to worry about, Jon is putting it all on the plate, and we offer up a hot take on Zoom calls. Remember, if you don't use lockdown to learn a language, write that novel or work on your side hustle you're probably just trying to keep going as best as you can in pretty testing circumstances and in all honestly that's as worth clapping as anything else going on right now. You're doing great and we're proud of you. This week's links: * Nick bought a [Kano](https://kano.me/uk/store/products/computer-kit). It's probably worth looking for on ebay as the novelty wears of fast. * Tbh the Kano is a Raspbery Pi with bells on, so maybe just get one of those and get the same benefit of a one hour diversion for the kids for a few quid... Nick could use [this kit to make a speaker for his NFC cards](https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pirate-radio-pi-zero-w-project-kit). What a talking point that would be. * He also got a [Yoto speaker](https://www.yotoplay.com/) which he swears is worth it. * Jon isn't on Twitter except for when he does [this](https://twitter.com/jonhickman/status/1254428473805987840). ...

Bread slacks

We don't just do this in January you know: it's time for some fitness and tech chat. Nick has inevitably bought a television, Jon needs pavement advice from Tom Hardy, and we double up and then double down on headphones. * [The Mania Half is coming](https://themaniahalf.co.uk/) * [Tom Hardy's movie Locke](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locke_(film) is basically a [disaster movie which takes place over the phone](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ao2r6qD22A) * [Armstrong & Miller: it's going to piss down](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNdrgjjsHsM) * [Hyphen Bluetooth headphones on Indiegogo](https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hyphen-the-gold-standard-of-wireless-earbuds#/) * [Let's try this out: join our Slack group](http://bit.ly/runnerslack) ...
