Shaun is in Wales this week ahead of his Mountain Running Championships Qualifier while Jermaine has an eventful time on the bus, or rather outside of the bus...if that sounds confusing it's because it is! All will be revealed in the podcast.

The guest is journalist, author and long time runner, Richard Askwith. Richard has written several books many of which are from the world of running.

The focus of this interview in particular is the captivating life of Czechoslovak runner Emil Zátopek, who Richard covered in his book Today We Die a Little.
