The Way of the Runner
conversations on running with Adharanand Finn
Award-winning author Adharanand Finn interviews an eclectic mix of runners to try to uncover what it is that makes us want to lace up and head outside to run around in big, pointless circles. And why we love it so much. Adharanand Finn is the author of three award-winning books, Running with the Kenyans (2012), The Way of the Runner (2014), and the Rise of the Ultra Runners (2019).

Let down by audio production.
Several episodes in and it’s great when you can hear it as the people being interviewed seem really relaxed. But the audio volume varies massively from interviewer, subject and across episodes making it a chore to get through.

Like the books, there is so much more here than running. The whys if running make for really interesting interviews. Keep going!

Good podcast, awful recording
Great content but difficult to listen to as the sound is all over the place! The interviewer is often much quieter than the guest or vice-versa, and sometimes the backing track distracts from the dialogue.
