Customer Reviews

Marathon Talk podcast

This used to be a great training tool for marathon running from two very knowledgeable and enthusiastic presenters and an entertaining slot from Tony Audenshaw. Whilst Tony's spot is still legendary and the highlight of the show, the rest is now little more than banter from Tom and Martin, generally describing their weekend chores or perhaps a parkrun. A large section of the show is dedicated to describing photos of listeners wearing the Marathon Talk t-shirts around the world. Not the most rivetting thing to listen to on a run. The presenters have cleary tired of marathons since the show's early days, and they generally focus on other distances, primarily ultra-distance or the parkrun. The majority of shows have no news or interviews related to marathons. There are certainly still good bits to be found in this podcast, but you may have to skip through all the filler to get there.

Still good

When Martin and Tom are on form this podcast works so well. Occasionally broken up with other presenters to keep the streak going which is fine but the winning formula can be lost a little. Very informative show and the interviews are great if the sound quality is too which it sometimes isn’t but not bad for free! It does engage the audience using various methods and there is a nice balance of comedy and content throughout the podcast that links to other shows. Having a lot in common with both presenters has helped but it shouldn’t put off any listener as you are sure to get something from the show no matter how active you are.
Running does help through. Amazing effort to keep going after 8 years. Thank you

Marathon Motivation

Before listening to this podcast I hadn’t ran a marathon, now with four under my belt I am hooked. With Martin hugging trees while Tom sits with Homer. Holly always at the head of the race and Tony is uplifting.

Wednesday is the highlight of my week.
