If you’ve decided this is the year you’re fit and serious about running, you may be overwhelmed by the choice to run a podcast, Elle Hunt told The Guardian.
As a dedicated Parkrunner, my top tip for “beginners who haven’t made the habit of running” is Run to the top, hosted by Claire Bartholic. Unlike many people, it’s not “chattering about the joys of running, or arguing about which gel will power your best marathon.” Instead, it offers helpful “things to know” advice and information, with episodes geared toward different running goals and experience levels.

Rethinking the population, James Marriott told The Times (all episodes are available on BBC Sounds).

David Willetts, one of the interview guests, explains: “If you are a large demographic in a modern consumer society, the market is shaped around your preferences” – and so is political power. your.
I also really recommend great Hunting Ghislaine, has now been renamed Ghislaine Hunting: The Challenge for story updates. The program is “a little harder to find” than some groups: it’s exclusive to a website called Global Player, although it’s still free. If you’re interested in the Maxwell story that’s unacceptable – and John Sweeney is a “natural talker: a charismatic, encyclopedic well informed and outraged talker. ethical”.
