Run Your Mouth began in January 2018 with a simple idea: That runners in the Boston community and around the country have stories to share, and that we could share them in a fun and unique way. There are many excellent running podcasts already out there that employ a standard interview format: tell us your origin story, walk us through your training, recap your last race. And yet, no one had quite managed to capture the true heart of running culture: the silly arguments, witty banter, and deep philosophical tangents that only come up when you’re on a long run with good friends. Hence, our concept was born: long-run talk for long-talking runners.
Host David Melly and a rotating cast of entertaining co-hosts sit down with some of the brightest and most interesting figures in the running scene, often over coffee or beer, to get into the weeds on wide-ranging topics, often connected to running culture but sometimes completely unrelated. Each episode ends with a game tailored specifically to our guest, and we close by asking our guests the “Big Three” questions: 1. Who or what is your Instagram crush? 2. What is your go-to karaoke song? 3. What is your death row meal?
What started with Friday morning recordings in the Tracksmith Trackhouse is now recorded all over the country with a wide range of guests. The show is now part of the Citius Mag podcast network and new episodes are recorded and released on a bi-weekly basis.
Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy our little show!
