Listening to podcasts while running is a fantastic way to be entertained/educated in the midst of your rigorous exercise or daily endorphin high. If you want to keep up on the latest gaming news or listen to opinionated gaming discussion, what better way than to throw on your favorite gaming podcast(s) while hitting the pavement? A few of my favorites are the Gonintendo Podcast, 1up’s Retronauts Podcast, and of course The Bombcast. Each new recording provides fresh perspective/debate as well as a conversational atmosphere to keep those engaged in the run who might find themselves easily bored or dwelling on the strain of the run. Careful with that Bombast though, and prepare for 3/4 of a marathon if you want to run through the entirety of an average Bombcast.
Expanding upon that, this post could also be seen as a way to ease gamers into the running world. If you already have a favorite batch of gaming podcasts, why not get up and move around some while you enjoy it instead of just sitting at home or in your car or on some sort of mass transit system? That’s right, there’s no reason! You’re certainly not going to be gaming while listening to gaming podcasts (at least I hope you don’t). Running and podcasts go together. The gaming world and podcasts go together. Consider that when you download that next ‘cast. I’ll catch you guys later!
