    Jon Ronson is the author of numerous bestselling books, and was played by Ewan McGregor in the film of his book The Men Who Stare At Goats. He started running 10 years ago when he saw a picture of himself standing next to George Clooney and thought he needed to get in shape. Barely a day has past since that he hasn’t gone out running. He tells us why he can’t stop, why he will never run a race, and how running feeds into his creative process. Produced: @IAmTheHow. Music: Starfrosch

Zach tells us about his ultra running breakthrough while working on a cruise ship, living for 5 years off-grid halfway up a mountain, and the appeal of pushing yourself into oblivion...
