The Podcast Hour for Saturday 27 October 2018
Stripy love letter: Out Of Line. Household Name: how the US President made us eat more pizza. Dirt Church Radio: trail running nirvana, and improvised storytelling with The Bear Pack.
From zebra crossings to prison uniforms, from Where's Wally? to the Breton shirt, stripes have always had a knack for grabbing our attention.
In a BBC documentary called 'Out of Line', graphic designer Teresa Monachino shares her love of the horizontal line. Produced by Mair Bosworth for BBC Radio 4.
'Household Name' takes some of the biggest names in business- global giants like Starbucks and Coca Cola- and uncovers surprising stories from their past.
So way back before he became US President, Donald Trump played a crucial role in selling us more pizza!
'Dirt Church Radio' is a locally produced show with a focus on trail running- basically running done in New Zealand's great outdoors.
But don't get the idea that this podcast is a collection of split times and energy bar reviews and training notes and protein shake recipes and sneaker specifications! Finding passionate, interesting people to talk about the things that give them a buzz is generally a pretty good recipe for audio success. And the feature interviews with runners that are the centrepiece for each Dirt Church radio episode reveal a collection of interesting characters whose paths into trail running have often been long, circuitous and full of ups and downs.
We play some of Episode 7 featuring the American ultramarathon legend Dean Karnazes, and speak to Matt Rayment and journalist Eugene Bingham, the hosts and creators of Dirt Church Radio.
