Podcast Recommendations?

I think I might try a podcast on my next run. I love music but need to concentrate on my breathing, plus I’m hoping a really good podcast will give me something to focus on so I’m not constantly thinking “how long left on this £&@?ing run??”

Anyone got any suggestions? My first instinct is for the comedy genre but I’m open to everything!

There are just so many to choose from! I've listened to Adam Buxton, Jessie Ware and The Naughty Step recently.

Thank you, I’ve downloaded one of each to experiment with!


I listen to ‘my dad wrote a porno’ when i run, its got me through some hard runs.


I have the Rock My Run app. It allows you to alter the speed of the tracks which is a brilliant feature if you like running in time with the music. Loads of tracks on there to choose from, pop, 80s, 90s, rock, country....


I can’t help with a podcast but thought I’d pitch in that I listen to audiobooks on audible while running and that has definitely contributed to making me look forward to my runs even more!


I love listening to the podcast Running Commentary! Two comedians Rob Deering and Paul Tonkinson chat while they are running! 😀
