Show Notes

Chasing a PB, we're dropping our second "weekly" episode this week. In this episode we track down Fat Nick on Strava and find out if Chiropractic is a thing. We talk marathons, pilates, and get two tickets to Nick's post-rowing gun show. Nick has done his homework, Jon dreams of SIS gels, and we still don't get to talk about our amazing new Runner Pod stickers. * [Science Vs on Chiropractic](https://www.gimletmedia.com/science-vs/chiropractors-theyre-cracked) * [Rock'n'Roll Marathon Liverpool](http://www.runrocknroll.com/liverpool/) See you next "week".

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**.

Sous le bureau, le gymnase!

Grab a dongle for your weights, and help yourself to a vegan Pukka pie—it's the Christmas episode. Don't want a vegan pie? Well have one anyway. We found time to chat about home gym set-ups, had a little festive chat, and uncovered yet more crippling social anxiety from Nick's past. Like the show? Show your support by supporting our favourite charities. As ever we're supporting [Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod) whose work is never more important than it is now. We'd also want to highlight the importance of the work being done locally and nationally in the UK by the various charities that work with victims of domestic abuse—the Covid pandemic has seen an increase in demand for such services and they need support to continue delivering services to those who need them. Please consider making a gift this Christmas to a local organisation or a national one such as [Refuge](https://donate.refuge.org.uk/page/51133/donate/1) ...
