On November 2nd, 2014 I went down to New York City to run my first marathon. The run was challenging, exciting, and one of the most intense things I've ever participated in.

Every once in a while, I’ll make passing mention that I’m listening to one podcast or another. After explaining that yes, podcasting is still a thing, I’m sometimes asked if I have any recommendations. I've decided to put together a list of my current favorites to kick off 2014. Alongside why I believe each podcast is worthy of your time, I will provide both links for both iTunes and other podcasting platforms.
