Show Notes

It’s time to kick off your trainers and grab yourself a nourishing bowl of nonsense soup. This week Nick attempts to talk himself down from a major purchase by reading its tech specs and features out on mic. We talk about our broken old man backs, plan some dream desk setups, and go shopping for Lycra at Poundland. Jon drops an easy catch, Nick accepts that he just likes running, and we really hope that someone plays the noise. If you liked the show, please consider supporting this week's charity by buying someone you know a Christmas gift at Oxfam—we have chosen the Super Girl gift, which can help to provide education, leadership training and attitude-changing media campaigns, helping to empower women and girls to claim their civil rights: [www.oxfam.org.uk/runnerpod](http://www.oxfam.org.uk/runnerpod) • [Ashes 2017-18: How to follow England’s tour of Australia on the BBC - BBC Sport](http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/41905863) • [Our giddy first episode](http://runnerpod.com/e/3547a9a505ac64L/) and the [The Lost Tapes](http://runnerpod.com/b/354ac3e6f7e854L/) • Jon once had this [Transformers book and tape title](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRGa-xKjuNU) • [The aLLreLi Soba Bluetooth headphones](http://amzn.to/2kb1cEF) are back in stock.

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). If you'd like one we want you to have one and here's what you need to do... If you're in the UK, make a donation of £3.75 **or more** to Shelter by visiting: [https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod). Email us your address and we will send you a Runner Pod Sticker. If you're outside the UK, please email us first to discuss so we can look at the postage situation.
