Show Notes

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_.

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.

Yes the rumours are true: this is a podcast about running and tech, and we have opinions on Bluetooth headphones. We discuss the joys of shopping at Decathlon and the ethical problems of shopping at Sports Direct, we spend a little bit too long discussing the geography of the West Midlands, and there’s been a terrible, terrible accident. Nick tries to be a better f* __ck*ng person, Jon does not, and we finally commence Nick and Jon’s Sh*t __Bluetooth Headphone Review. ## This week * Don’t say f** __k or b*gg*er __, but if you do [give £5 to Shelter](https://england.shelter.org.uk/donate). * [Bombhead](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombhead) is actually from [Hollyoaks](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollyoaks). * OB (also from Hollyoaks) [looks like](https://twitter.com/roundonefight/status/626740850215796736) the Australian bowler [Josh Hazelwood](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Hazlewood). * A [list of approved teatime swears](http://hallofthewendigo.informe.com/forum/neighbours-f135/swear-words-that-only-exist-in-neighbours-t1667.html). * Friends don’t let friends [go to Decathlon drunk](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/895369781402054658). * Sports Direct [treats staff appallingly](http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-36855374) and [their owner knows it](http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/07/21/mike-ashley-turned-a-blind-eye-to-appalling-conditions-at-sports/). * As far as we can see, Decathlon is pretty responsible and decent, [with recognition for responsible buying processes](http://www.bipiz.org/en/advanced-search/the-responsible-buying-process-at-oxylane.html), [good employment practices](http://www.bipiz.org/en/advanced-search/decathlon-would-like-to-reconcile-pro-lifeprivate-life-for-all-its-employees.html) (it ‘won the 4th place in the “Great Place to Work” ranking in 2014 and 2015’) and [clear policies on sustainability](http://sustainability.decathlon.com/faq/). * Some good shoe chat on [Diz Runs Radio episode 444](https://player.fm/series/diz-runs-with/444-jonathan-beverly) * We reviewed Bluetooth headphones! * Top pick: [the aLLreli Soba](http://amzn.to/2vQ5RjN) which is a **neckband style**.
