Show Notes

Welcome back, it's been a long week. I'll be honest, I lost the show notes. But you don't read them anyway, and anything I write here will be lost like tears in rain. So, we will have almost certainly discussed fitness, running and tech. Let me know what this episode of the show is about by tweeting @runnerpod. Peace.

Season 2 Episode 1: Dad++

Welcome to Season 2! What awaits you inside? Will there be a controversial new younger character who changes the dynamic of the show? Will Jon remember how to read the outro? Has the Audio Veteran delivered? You can probably guess the answers to all of these questions but it's about the journey so grab your stickers, pour a juice and settle in. --- Oh a quick plug. We briefly mention in the show that Jon is running the Great North Run for charity (mate). It's a charity that's really important to Jon's family. We didn't really get into it and that race will be run by the time we tape the next show, so if you'd like to know more here are some links: * [The charity is the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charitable Fund ](https://rohcharity.org/). * [This is the Just Giving page complete with a tl;dr backstory](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/corrina-hickman) * [This is the full story about why he chose this charity if you want to know more. It's a bit emotional, sorry](https://www.facebook.com/899120505/posts/10162262870665506?sfns=mo) *Remember: only the good ones read the show notes* ...

Between then and the mountain

The elite runners may nearly be back at the finish, but the green wave of podcasting is just setting off which means it's time for us to get started on this year we call 2018. We set ambitious goals, plan to infiltrate a gamergate stretching class, and get some long overdue slidey experience. Nick's been over the mountain, Jon's got a very long agenda, and we employ an unorthodox Runner Pod editing strategy. This conversation will conclude in Runner Pod 19: Between my Face and My Finger. See you next week (honest). ## A word from our sponsor Thanks to our podcasting host [Podiant](http://podiant.co/) for supporting _You Don’t Look Like a Runner_.

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.
