Running Podcasts to Keep You Entertained

Running Podcasts to Keep You Entertained:

Over 16 months ago, I blogged about running podcasts that keep me entertained.  Since then, some have come and gone. The podcast world has only gotten bigger since early 2018.  These days you can find topics ranging from weight loss to marathon running to interviewing professional runners, whatever your interest.

I’m by no means an expert (and you will not see a LOLZ Podcasts anytime soon) but here is an updated list of podcasts I’ve been listening to.  I’ve listened to at least an episode of each podcast, but not every single episode of everyone. I prefer light-hearted podcasts. Most of these podcasts are hosted by runners for runners.

For me, I listen to podcasts when I’m working or even cleaning. I struggle with listening when I’m running because I can’t focus and run. Although some of my long runs that are a couple of hours long I’ve listened to podcasts.

I use wireless Aftershokz headphones which I wrote a review about here.

Questions for you:

What are your favorite running podcasts? 

What’s your favorite run podcast episode? 


  1. ‘That Running Podcast’ is my favourite – although it didn’t make it on the list. Informal chat hosted by ex-pro GB runners. Doesn’t fail to make laugh.

  2. Morning Shakeout is one of my favorites.

    A few other running podcasts I like:
    Everyday Running Legends – Interviews with runners at all levels (host is Australian and a lot of his guests are Australian or British)

    Billy Yang Podcast – Runner & filmmaker interviewing mostly ultra/trail runners. Great for long runs/commutes. Billy has a great voice & great way with guests. (There’s a Morning Shakeout interview with Billy Yang that’s excellent too.)

    Humans of Ultrarunning – Hosted by Candace Burt, an ultra race director (famous for the Triple Crown of 200s) who also holds the women’s Wonderland Trail FKT. Also very long interviews, primarily trail/ultra/FKT runners.

    Ginger Runner Live – Ethan Newberry, another runner & filmmaker, hosts this one. It’s a live YouTube interview show but also distributed post-air as a podcast.

  3. I am always looking for new podcasts to listen to while I run. Well, that and audiobooks I guess. I am going to check some of the ones you listed out as I hadn’t heard of them yet. Thanks for sharing!

      1. Well one that I just finished specific to running was North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail by Scott and Jenny Jurek. It was really interesting hearing from both of them about Scott’s run. Also, I always enjoy audiobooks that have the author nararate the book and in this case it was both Scott and Jenny.
