Inside ‘Run Your Mouth’ with David Melly


This week’s Run Your Mouth is a little different – To celebrate 3 years and 50 episodes, we have a special bonus “Inside the Podcast” edition. The “guest” is host David Melly, and frequent co-hosts Dana Giordano and Ben Bosworth interview David about the story behind the podcast, from its origins to its most controversial moments to its best and worst episodes.

David shares the inside scoop on his favorite guests, what it felt like to become a target of Internet harassment, and how he reacted when Meb Keflezighi crashed his birthday Zoom. Enjoy this episode with a lot of never-before-shared tidbits, or celebrate RYM’s third birthday with a journey through the back catalog.

Below, David also shares 5 “essential episodes” of Run Your Mouth for new listeners to get on board or longtime fans to rediscover.

Episode 8 – Where Culture Is: with Daniel Winn

This intimate New York episode is one of my favorites because Daniel is one of my most hilarious and wisest friends. I particularly enjoyed his casting the movie version of NJNY track club toward the end of the episode.

Episode 14 – Tinmen and Citwits: with Sam Parsons

The first-ever Citius Mag X RYM crossover was a huge success, with Tinman Elite’s Sam Parsons sharing some hilarious college stories and the secrets of racing swagger years before Tinman became the phenomenon it is today.

Episode 21 – Price of a Pod: with Woody Kincaid

Woody and I were both at very strange points in our running lives when this episode is recorded, offering an intimate and introspective look into the mind of one of the U.S.’s brightest rising stars long before he broke 13 minutes in the 5k.

Episode 35 – Fast Girl Summer: with Elle Purrier

Many people know Elle from her American indoor record in the mile and appearance at 2019 Worlds, but not nearly as many people know the fun, lighthearted side of this Vermont native. This was a delightful look into the interesting person behind the fast times.

Episode 42 – Nap Queen: with Molly Seidel

Our first “virtual” Run Your Mouth, and what better company to share it with than Molly and Izzy Seidel. We talked about Trials (more importantly, the afterparty following Trials), the “slowest mile” phenomenon, and the importance of naps.
