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.

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). ...

The one person who looks like a runner

We’re back, like the rappers are, to lay down diss tracks for one another through the medium of podcasting. This week our biggest fan doesn’t listen to the show, Nick gets stretched and Jon feels vibrations through his skull. If you want to listen along without spoilers, please watch _The Barkley Marathons_ before playing or pause at 43:25 and then hit us back, just to chat, truly yours, this is Stan. * [Top Four #36: Misheard Eddie Vedder Lyrics - Relay FM](https://www.relay.fm/topfour/36) * [Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone conducting headphones](http://amzn.to/2FASmGJ) * [Reconcilable Differences #68: includes a discussion on The Barkley Marathons](https://www.relay.fm/rd/68) * [The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young – A Documentary Film](http://barkleymovie.com/) ...

Unprivatise the lot

It's a follow-up-a-polloza! We discuss the sticker giveaway, Nick eats humble pie at the chirpractors, Jon reviews online giving websites, and we make some very rash promises. ## Sticker giveaway and charity fundraiser We made some Stickers. They're quite lovely, great quality and they feature the Runner Pod logo. [Your laptop could look like this beaut](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/1001866442415988737).
