I’ve finally completed the endurance event of listening to every episode in the SKT. The podcast slowly drags you in and then makes it hard to leave. It’s Hosted by people who are happy to see the funny side of their own and everyone else’s failures whilst rarely mentioning their own achievements. The best thing about the pod is the array of fantastic guests who can both inspire and demoralise you within one long run. FYB
Still great. Still bad.
I first listened during the ‘DryRobe Years’ and left for a while. Listened to the last three episodes and it is still brilliant. And sneaks in some proper issues as well. Keep it up gents.
Not for runners who take life too seriously
Two funny blokes talking rubbish pretty much 90% of the time which is brilliant!
Jody’s constant excuses of reasons why he can’t run makes me feel better when I can’t be bothered and would rather eat chocolate and binge Netflix
If only they were northern I would rate 6 stars
