The Geeks subscribe to a lot of podcasts. Here’s a list of them with descriptions:
Running with the Pack Allan and Stevie always provide a cheery talk about running and triathlons. Both of them are marathoners who enjoy the running lifestyle. One of our favorites for sure. The show is released weekly or bi-weekly depending on their work schedules. Allan was a guest on our show Episode 15.
Iron Brandon Brandon has a weekly show about everything triathlons. An iron-distance triathlete himself, Brandon reviews products, goes over training, and has many big name guests (including Danny Abshire, Chris McDougall, Caballo Blanco). Brandon was a guest on Episode 11.
RunRunLive A weekly show hosted by professional Zombie hunter and yak farmer, Chris Russell, RunRunLive provides a wealth of knowledge, comedy, and guests. Chris usually has a guest on every week ranging from the CEO of ReSole to an Indian ultra-runner. Chris is poetic, poignant, and funny.
BHAG Running Hosted by Aussie runner JayDub, BHAG (Big, Hairy Audacious Goal) is a mixture of a podcast (from his mobile studio/car) and runcast. Jay shares his training for his own BHAGs as well as shares listener provided BHAG. He usually gets a show out every week.
BTR: The Marathon Show This is listed as an online radio show, hosted by Joe Taricani. I just recently started listening to this show, so I only have heard a few episodes. Each weekly show seems to have a single topic/guest(s). The ones I have listened to have been enjoyable.
Early Morning Cruzin Typically a runcast done by James/J1. James has years of experience in running. Usually a weekly release, James might be putting the show on hold pending a running injury. Hope not!
Geek Girl Runner A podcast comes out of Australia on a sporadic basis, GGR is hosted by Kris Howard, an American born resident of Australia. When she gets around to recording, she usually talks life, running, and tips for running from the female perspective.
iRunFar – a video podcast about trail running and ultra running, iRunFar contains great reviews and interviews of some of the greats (Krupicka, Rose, etc.).
Phedippidations Hosted by the godfather of running podcasts, SteveRunner. With 250 + episodes in the can ranging in topics from running pregnant to the Boston marathon, you will surely find something of interest in his catalog. Definitely one of my favorites!
Run Like Health – Jake, a vegan, father, age-group triathlete, runcasts on a weekly basis about training, life, veganism, etc. He also plays a fun game at the end of the show call RunLikeHealth Ipod Roulette.
The Runner’s Round Table The RRT is like the CSPAN of running. Recorded on TalkShoe, RRT has a revolving number of hosts and guests. Anyone can schedule a topic and guest list, so the enjoyment and quality varies from show to show.
Running Crunch – Hosted by Jeff, it is primarily a runcast with him training in the Middle East while trying to lose weight.
Running from the Reaper A runcast by the mighty Nigel, Running from the Reaper follow his thoughts while on his running journey. Just started listening to this show, so I’ll try to fill you in when I listen to more episodes. The ones I have listened to have been quite enjoyable.
Running in the Center of the Universe A runcast by Ashland Dave, an ultra-runner. Updated sporadically, but always a good show.
Running the Narrow Path A runcast by Krister, this is the ultimate in relaxation. He has such a soothing voice and describes the scenery of his trail runs so eloquently. This is another new podcast for me, but I highly recommend.
This Running Life This is Gordon‘s new podcast, switching the name from Running to Disney (which is also a good show). It is part runcast/podcast/weird stuff that happens at Wal-Mart-cast. Gordon just finished his first sub-4 marathon, is a Vegan, and is coached by Megan from the Run Vegan Run podcast
You Don’t Have to Run Alone A runcast by Ted, a formerly unhealthy guy who recently retired from the Air Force. Ted runs and talks as if he is next to you chatting away. This show is great for running with.
The 3 Non Joggers – Wonderfully funny (and blue) show with two ultrarunners (Russ and Gary the Vale) and their friend, Carl the Mailman. Sometimes about running, sometimes not so much, I always look forward to their new episodes.
This Week in Technology (TWiT) Hosted by former host of the Screen Savers Leo Laporte, TWiT is a weekly video podcast with revolving panelists from the tech industry. It is informative, funny, and a must-listen for any geek.
The Tobolowsky Files – Hosted by David Chensky, this features the stories of the character actor Stephen Tobolowsky. I absolutely adore this show. Stephen has the gift of story, for sure. Just check out one episode, and you’ll be hooked.
