Show Notes

"I learned a new word today: gaslight" It’s not [like God taking a photograph](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19UROAIbtlw) but it’s apparently Nick’s favourite word. What else is happening? We go back to school to do some basic French, remedial German, and complex maths. Nick makes the best of a tragedy, Jon brings a surprise, and we layer up for winter runs. ## Show Notes * Thread is one of Jon’s other shows—in [this episode he mostly talks about this episode of Runner Pod](http://thread.fm/e/35ac386bb51230/). Rate, review, subscribe, and check for Jon’s many tropes. * [Matt Le Tissier](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Le_Tissier) does not know Jon but he was on one of our favourite podcasts, [Quickly Kevin, will he score?](https://www.quicklykevin.com/episodes/2017/2/23/matthew-letissier-s01e01). * [Guernsey Patois](http://guernseydonkey.com/?p=3371)—a language neither of us speak. * [Lady in a tube is going cheap for Black Friday](http://amzn.to/2hD5bsB)—she knows all the Moana songs. * [Do more with Amazon Alexa - IFTTT](https://ifttt.com/amazon_alexa). * [Teksta Voice Recognition Puppy](http://amzn.to/2hEXnXb). * [The ever anxious eye of Sauron](https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/lotr/images/f/f5/Eye_of_sauron.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/350?cb=20100402161911). * [Nuneaton bowling alley siege: Man arrested - BBC News](http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-41714114) * [Through axle wheels](http://road.cc/content/feature/171353-how-fit-and-remove-through-axle-wheels). * [Should you change to tubeless tyres? - Cycling Weekly](http://www.cyclingweekly.com/news/product-news/should-you-change-to-tubeless-tyres-177480). * [Cycle to Work scheme: everything you need to know - BikeRadar](http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/article/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-cycle-to-work-scheme-18360/). * [Premiership Football Facts and Trivia by John White](http://amzn.to/2jvXapY). * [Answer Me This](http://amzn.to/2hDiJV7) is also available in the Nick Moreton Memorial Toilet Library. * [The Holding Role](https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/theholdingrole/episodes/2015-03-16T15_38_38-07_00)—a thing Nick used to make, which featured a football quiz. * Another podcast episode where Jon is pain the arse: [From the earth to the electronic thumb | Beware of the Leopard - The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast](http://btlpodcast.com/e/35a70a8ea25876/). * [This smart salt shaker has voice controls but can’t grind salt - The Verge](https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/8/3/16088526/smalt-smart-salt-shaker-app-alexa-smartphone). * A lesson in trusting the audience, from George Lucas: [From my point of view the Jedi are evil. - YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llLKar19XhA).

It's the cyanide, stupid

Is this the real life, or scripted reality? This week, we’re caught in a time travel paradox as Nick gets his wish for an evening record—and instantly regrets it. We talk marathon recovery, we discuss bat and poo memes, we get emotional about cricket, and we drink (responsibly). Nick proves that he’s a grown up, Jon proves that he’s not, and we deliver on our listener guarantee to be “increasingly infrequent” with our longest edit yet. ## This Week * [Jon’s Rider](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/909028521955258368) * The scientists _do_ say [that cashews are poisonous, sometimes](http://www.living-foods.com/articles/rawcashew.html) * Amaretti Biscuits are made of [apricot kernels, and contain cyanide](https://www.robinsandsons.com/blogs/blog/180247431-history-of-amaretti-biscuit) and people used to like doing this [flying trick](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1ppo21Enj0) with them. * [Bat video](https://www.facebook.com/pg/tadhgflemingvideos/videos/) * [Tinder date poo lady](http://mashable.com/2017/09/05/poop-tinder-date-fire-department/#y1hsB8FuFaqo) * The Dennis Quaid movie [_Frequency_](http://mashable.com/2017/09/05/poop-tinder-date-fire-department/#y1hsB8FuFaqo) * [Batter bits at the chippy](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scraps_\(batter\)) * Cramps, electrolytes, powders etc. [some thoughts here](https://www.runnersworld.com/health/how-to-treat-leg-cramps-while-running) * Mile/km markers—how should they count? [Twitter poll](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/909037892915400704) * [Running backwards is definitely not the new running forwards, but…](http://www.runnersgoal.com/5-unique-benefits-of-running-backwards/) * [The photo of a lonely Jon crossing the finish line at the Guernsey Marathon](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/909033571213508609) * [A VO2 max primer](https://runnersconnect.net/is-vo2-max-worth-spending-for/) * RadioLab on [the Badminton match where both teams tried to lose](http://www.radiolab.org/story/lose-lose/) * Jon can beat you at [Peteca](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=249RVDpBbS0&app=desktop) unless you’re [pro Brazilian league](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQPSC3H1pJI&app=desktop).
