Why yes, I am addicted to podcasts

43165466_d0964e3234_oI’ve been using Stitcher on my iPhone since June 24, 2011 to listen to a variety of podcasts. I just can’t seem to get enough of them. I recently looked up my stats in the app:

  • My listening hours – 2,817
  • Number of episodes – 6,579

Holy crap! I’m not sure how to feel about these numbers. Obviously, I don’t just sit around in my pajamas while I listen; I’m most frequently driving, running, getting ready for work in the morning, or cooking dinner at night. Even so, that’s a heck of a lot of my time – over 16 weeks! That must make me some kind of weird expert on random stuff, right!? Likely not. But I do learn quite a bit while being entertained, which is the whole point for me. Many shows have come and gone from my playlist over the last 3 1/2 years. I’d like to share with you some of my current favorites that I think more folks should know about. Have a listen and enjoy!

Healthy Lifestyle:


  • Marathon Talk – Hosts Martin and Tom are super likeable! Been listening faithfully for years.
  • Trail Runner Nation – Hosts Don and Scott crack me up with their “casual” interviewing style.
  • Ultra Runner Podcast – I love to hear from runners covering a crazy amount of mileage.
  • Endurance Planet – I like their “Ask the Coach” sessions on training and fueling.
