Recommended Running Podcasts

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.

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.

The Devoted Runner A mixture of running and religion, hosted by St3ven.  He covers his training, his life, and whatever else that pops into his mind.  Sometimes a parable will pop in there as well.

  2. Jason and Ray,
    Thanks for including my podcast in your recommended list. I feel like a small fish in a pond full of whales with the other shows on the list but I try.
    I’ll be taking you along on my run today. It was hard not to listen to it yesterday on my rest day but I managed and am eager to hear what you have to say today.
    Thanks for putting together one of my favorite shows.
