Show Notes

Dear listener This week's show notes, which surely you will not read, come in the form of an open open letter to friend of the show Blessed With Pace. Truly, the open letter is the coward's medium, as you will discover in this week's show. But while you may want world peace, I simply want to prove the power of mind control. At 29 minutes into this recording I will deliver a promise I made to friend of the show Blessed With Pace to use the power of my mind to make Nick talk to me about passports. I was so impressed with myself for doing this I absolutely lost my shit, for which I apologise. We also talked about vegetarian nuggets. You deserve better than this, Your servant, Jon

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_.

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.

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).
