Episode 1772: Let Us Be Your Apollo Creed, The Second Captains Running Playlist
Today’s bonus free-to-air podcast features your new fitness best friend. But it can also be your gardening/cooking/cleaning/resting best friend and it’ll be right here for you whenever you need it.
Many of our listeners around the world have started training over the lockdown. So we’ve compiled some of our favourite Second Captains audio beds from over the years to pump you up, to make you laugh, and most of all, to stop you from thinking about your burning legs.
It’s a 30 minute playlist that Eoin, Murph and Ken will introduce and countdown to. You’ll get a polite and inspirational reminder of how much time has passed after the 10 and 20 minute mark.
Your running playlist will start after 7.15 minutes of this podcast and your sprint finish will be the beautiful mix of David Bowie’s ‘Where Are We Now?’ and Robbie Brady’s goal against Italy in 2016.
Soon you’ll be sprinting on the beach à la Rocky Balboa. We’re your Apollo Creed so let’s finish our runs by celebrating in the sea in tiny shorts together.

We’re joined by Oscar-nominated director @lennyabrahamson to talk making Gaelic football look realistic on Normal People, and his upcoming biopic about gay world champion boxer Emile Griffith
