Did a quick search and I couldn’t find a topic about podcasts so thought I’d start one. We’ve all mentioned good ones in various locations but we can consolidate here.
Really getting into various episodes of Rangan Chatterjee’s podcast. He has some really good guests. The three that have stood out for me so far
Ep 169 - Dr Gabor Mate - that’s a tough subject but goodness me it’s interesting
Ep 163 - Dr Kristin Neff - a very relevant subject to me and so interesting to hear about her studies
Ep 167 - Dr Tommy Wood - probably most relevant to this crowd and very interesting discussion. And a couple of digs at ironman training programmes
And if you’re in touch with your feminine side the Fortunately podcast is a good giggle.
I’ve only recently ‘discovered’ podcasts, since getting a pair of Aftershockz headphones (the bone conducting ones) and generally only listenn to them when I’m running. I found it a bit daunting starting so late when there seems to be 100+ past episodes and really not sure where to start.
But so far I’ve done Serial series one (and and then watched the Netflix series on the same subject) and my go to is Off Menu with James Acaster & Ed Gamble.
I listen to loads of Podcasts, so much that it can be a bit difficult to keep up but some my favourites are:
99% invisible - All about the design that goes in to many things we overlook like how did postboxes end up with their design, unusual building designs that had hidden secrets (City Corps Tower NYC on of my faves), how did the ‘missing children’ thing end up on milk containers
Criminal: Weird crime stories about murders, kidnappings and other interesting stories about how people were found, convicted, falsely imprissioned, etc)
The Empire Film Podcast - Presented by the magazine writers, I just really like these guys and films!
No Such Thing as a Fish - QI random facts in podcast form
The Real Science of Sport Podcast
The Weekly Planet - Two australian comic book nerds that really make me laugh. Mostly focused on films and TV around Marvel/DC/Godzilla Monsterverse etc but all areas of general comic fantasy
I listen to loads of podcasts. Some are tri related but there’s another thread for that. Really wish the original “age grouper” podcast would come back though- love those guys.
But non-tri I enjoy the usual suspects eg football weekly and the now show.
But actually I enjoy far more SMA (as mentioned above), Lockdown Parenting, Wolf and Owl and How did this get made, a podcast that is really funny if you happen to have seen the shite film they are trashing. I once rewatched “Great Wall” just so I could do the podcast trashing justice…
That’s the point the guy was trying to make. No need to have a 30 hour per week training programme on top of a full time job when the only competition is yourself. It’s a good discussion around the psychology of training load and what the actual benefits are or aren’t.
I listened to the Simon Ward podcast this week about the endurance athletes heart, talking with a cardiologist that specialises in cardiology for endurance athlete.
Some interesting points, although I’ve heard others from a similar field with slightly differing views, but he seems to think that 8-10 hours of exercise PW is about the sweet spot, but it does depend on what else is going on in your life, other stressors.
Family history is one of the key ones, and unfortunately my father had problems , so I’m hoping I’ve inherited my mothers genetics, I’ve certainly got her sweet tooth
