The best podcasts to Go running to

Who am I?

I’m Chris Schnabel, host of Mad Props. I’m an AVID runner, logging between 3.5-6 miles a day. These are the podcasts I listen to while on these runs. 🏃‍♂️💨 I went through a significant weight loss, over 200 pounds in about a year and some change, and running became a big part of my everyday life. Am I an expert? Not necessarily, but I have logged some time and hours.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

My podcast, Mad Props, is a casual conversation based show that brings on all different types of people to learn more about their background while also learning more about them you may not have known!

What is my podcast playlist about?

Mind numbing. For me, the shows on here I have great interest in so while I’m listening, I’m able to free my mind of the running and be in a different headspace, helping with the miles on miles of movement.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. The Ringer-Verse

Why this podcast?

Not just the Ringer-verse, but the Midnight Boys specifically. This may be one of the best podcasts for fandom you’re going to find. They are so funny and entertaining on the show, you get lost in what you’re doing because you feel like you’re in the room with them. The friendship between Van, Charles, Jomi and Steve is clear from the start.

2. Tosh Show

Why this podcast?

This one is new but man, I missed Tosh. He does an amazing job at controlling the conversation while also holding the attention of the audience and the interviewee. His comedy style and quick wit is perfect for a podcast.

3. Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

Why this podcast?

It’s possible this podcast ends up on every list I make. I try to mimic Conan’s interview style in my own show. I think he’s the best to do it and because of this I become distracted mentally while running, trying to learn and pickup how he works his interview Magic.

4.8

After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him. Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that. Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.

4. The Rewatchables

Why this podcast?

This one is super dependent on the movie they’re covering, but the nostalgic feeling of being brought back to a movie you love helps take your mind off the road ahead as you’re on a run.

5. Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Why this podcast?

This is another I need specifics for. Love flightless bird, listen with certain guests. But either way, Dax is a master at what he is doing and it is the #1 reason he has build such a large juggernaut of a show! Entertainment = distraction.

4.9

Hi, I’m Dax Shepard, and I love talking to people. I am endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, and I find people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. I invite you to join me as I explore other people’s stories. We will celebrate, above all, the challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment. What qualifies me for such an endeavor? More than a decade of sobriety, a degree in Anthropology and four years of improv training. I will attempt to discover human “truths” without any laboratory work, clinical trials or data collection. I will be, in the great tradition of 16th-century scientists, an Armchair Expert.
