International Podcast Day



September 30 is International Podcasting Day!  I love podcasts!

IPD-logos-Header420I listen to a bunch of podcasts.  I listen to them in the car and out on runs.  Most of these podcasts are focused toward endurance and outdoor sports-running, triathlons, climbing.  To celebrate International Podcasting Day, here are my favorites for 2015! Share and enjoy!


Marathon Talk :  Martin Yelling and Tom Williams create a very well produced weekly podcast on marathon running. There is a featured interview each week, and there are recaps of the big marathon weekends.

Talk Ultra  an ultra running podcast!  And it is Euro-based, so that is cool to get some different intel on running outside of the US.  Ian Corless is the host of this, with usually 1 or 2 interviews, and usually with some interviews pre-race and post-race.

Dirt Dawg’s Rambling:  Mike Croy is a runner from the Detroit area; his podcasts reflect what he is up to at the moment; sometimes training for an ultra, running a marathon, speedwork;  his best episodes are when the wife drops in!

Embrace Running:  I stumbled across Elena and Mark’s podcast and enjoy it.  They just talk about their week in training, what races they have done and the experiences that they have.

Trail Runner Nation:  A  lively podcast centered on the West Coast (of the US) usually pretty interesting, focused on trail running and ultras.

Ultra Finishers new podcast interviewing runners after finishing their first ultra

Ultrarunner Podcast  Eric Schranz gets some good interviews with timely ultra runners; very west coast oriented but still a great listen

Running on Om you don’t have to be a yogi or runner to listen, but it would probably help. A little hippy dippy, but I have listened to just a few shows so far

Elevation Trail my listening waxes and wanes with ET, but lately I’ve enjoyed the interviews with ultrarunners; motor biking, cyclocross not so much

DFL Ultrarunning usually a 2-3 hour podcast when an episode is published, with several interviews and usually a runner’s roundtable

Marathon Journey a well produced podcast about..well the marathon journey

No Meat Athlete Matt Frazier is a plant based  athlete. The shows are interesting and useful,  without some of the attitude that vegans/vegetarians  sometimes give off

Runners of a Certain Age-The goal of the runner of a certain age podcast is start a conversation around what it is like to run long distance races as we grow older. John does nice race recaps, it’s just like reading race reports!


The Dirtbag Diaries:  Real Life Stories from Fitz Cahall.  Outdoor stories about..everything.  Some are very short, some long.  If you like the outdoor life, you will appreciate the Dirtbag Diaries.

IM Talk Bevan James Eyles and John Newsom host this triathlon podcast from New Zealand.

Endurance Planet: interviews and questions and answers about endurance events-running, triathlons, ultra with Lucho and Tawnee

Zen and the Art of Triathlon:  I have listened to Brent Blanckner’s podcast for years! It’s one of the oldest triathlon podcasts out there.  Sometimes there is an interview, many times it’s just Brett taking us along with him on his training

The Enormocast:  It’s a podcast about rock climbing.  Chris Kalous is very entertaining.  

Mountain Meister Ben Shenk has smoothed out his podcast and almost every episode features an interview with a mountaineer; his description the podcast that explores the minds of those who explore

Social Media

She Podcasts-yes one day I will start my podcast, in the meantime listen to She Pocast: In the spirit of further support, a podcast was created to address issues and podcasting current events as they relate to women

Biz Chix Podcast   Natalie Eckdahl interviews successful women across the globe and learn how they are growing their businesses, turning ideas into actionable results, maintaining their relationships, helping others, organizing their lives and making it all work.

Brilliant Business Moms just because I’m not a mom doesn’t mean you can’t get some good information from this podcast on small business and creativity

Blogging Betties: good interviews with bloggers usually with some funny banter with the Betties before and after  (no longer active, but good funny informative episodes)

High Impact Blogging-this podcast is very good, as it is focused on the health/wellness lifestyle bloggers  (no longer active but still good information)

Oh So Pinteresting Podcast  a podcast about Pinterest and how to do it

The Manly Pinterest Show Pinterest is not just wedding gowns and nail decorations; Jeff Sieh hosts an interesting show on Pinterest and other social media platforms “adding testosterone one Pin at a time”

Others and some just for fun

The 5am Miracle Podcast-Jeff wants you to “dominate your day before breakfast”.  It’s a personal growth/development type of podcast, but it’s not so hyper-smiley or over eager that some motivational podcasts can be.  

The Talking Dead a fan podcast about “The Walking Dead”

The Walker Stalker Podcast yes, there is room for two fan podcasts about “The Walking Dead”!

99% Invisible is a well produced show about design, architecture and the 99% invisible activity that shapes our world. Each episode is a sound rich deep dive into a single topic

Skeptoid weekly science podcast dedicated to furthering knowledge by blasting away the widespread pseudosciences that infect popular culture, and replacing them with way cooler reality.

Sawbones Dr Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin host Sawbones, a Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine, digging through the annals of medical history to uncover all the odd, weird, dumb and just gross ways we’ve tried to fix people over the years.


Can you suggest some new podcasts for me to listen to?
Happy International Podcast Day!!

      If you have some podcasts to recommend, I would love to hear them! I’m always looking for new/different content on my drives and runs.

    Kimba, so many of your faves are mine as well. Thx for including some non-running ones as well. Skeptics looks super interesting to me. I’ve got a new one I just recently stumbled across to share with you. It’s called 10 Junk Miles. A group of mid-packer runner friends sitting around chatting and laughing and devoting 10 ten minute segments to various running and non-running topics. I always end up laughing out loud before the show is over. Main host is Scott Kumer (sp?) of Dovi and Me blog. They’re based in Chicago.

      I had a podcast looong ago..2007. I’ve been kicking the idea around again. Maybe 2016 is the year to make that happen! Let me know when yours goes live, I’d like to hear it!
