Please let me introduce you to The Running Stormtrooper Podcast: An easy listening, advert and patron free fresh podcast aimed at sharing some positivity and hopefully some fun. One of my friends and I have put together this podcast for runners, Star Wars fans or would-be charity fundraisers. It’s a bit niche but it’s something for people to listen to whilst they’re out for a jog, walking the dog or doing some DIY.
Aimed at being just 30-40 minutes long. The show is split into 3 sections: a monthly catch up on my 1000 miles in 2020 challenge, a running Stormtrooper story from the past, and running/fundraising tips. I’ve now released numerous main monthly episodes plus a 10 minute pilot episode, which is just a scene setter. I may also start some special guest episodes.
I love the idea of helping others reach their goals, be it running or charity fundraising. For this reason I wanted to try to reach out to as many people as possible therefore I approached my great friend Stuart Skinner, who has supported me from the beginning of this project and asked him if he’d help me produce a podcast.
The premise: a monthly, free to download fun and informative podcast which lasts 30-45 minutes, the length of a typical dog walk or weekday run. Split into 3 sections: a monthly catch up, a look back at a key story from the Running Stormtrooper’s challenges and finally some hints/tips for runners and fundraising.
I’m delighted to say that we went ahead with this and produced a 10 minute ‘Pilot Episode’ and have produced a monthly catch up ever since. The feedback from listeners via private message and on instagram has been great.
The podcasts are available on Spotify, Google, Apple Podcast and most Podcast Platforms.
