2020 Podcasts: Athletics Chat Episode 1



This is a new program from RunBlogRun.

Each week, hopefully, Stuart Weir and I will speak via the wonders of modern technology, speaking 30-40 minutes on 4 weekly topics on global athletics. Stuart Weir is our de facto European correspondent. He wrote 150 pieces in 2019 for RunBlogRun. His first hand experience on the Diamond League circuit, the British athletics circuit, World championships and Olympic Games give him a unique view into the sport.

Stuart Weir and I have different views on the same situation, and that will keep it fun. I will handle the politics, and Stuart will discuss everything else. He just does not like sports politics.
