Informative, Dry Podcasts for Running

Astronomy Cast has been great, but I'd like to mix things up with other topics!

I'd like to add in a full-body strength workout (+/- 30 min, 40 including stretching) three days a week. I'd also like this workout to be something I can do at home, with an absolute minimum of supplies (just body weight would be great), and that I can use for a long period of time. [more inside]

I believe it's called jogging or yogging; it might be a soft "J".

Recently, I began running regularly for the first time in many, many years. But it seems like I only have two modes: running and walking with no levels in between. How can I train to keep a more consistent pace so that I can achieve a quicker mile and get a better workout? [more inside]
