#322: Talking TMI Topics with a Former Runner’s World Editor

Sarah and co-host Molly Williams keep it real (very real!) with guest Meghan Kita, author of How to Make Yourself Poop: And 999 Other Tips All Runners Should Know and a former editor at Runner’s World. The trio covers an array of TMI topics, leaving no turd, uh, stone unturned. Meghan, a first-time mom with a 5-month-old baby, starts by oversharing about her return to running post-baby, as she explains (in some detail!) why she saw a pelvic-floor physical therapist. From there, Meghan details how she juggles breastfeeding, pumping, and running. There’s piles of poop advice, including three tips for getting things moving pre-run. Molly explains why caffeine affects the urgency to pee—and how to ease that issue. Molly asks Meghan several male-oriented questions—then makes an outrageous admission that sends SBS into peals of laughter. The conversation changes to chafing, including a clever solution when a tee or socks are rubbing the wrong way on a run. Meghan proves why she’s the McGyver of the running world. All in all, an informative + hilarious episode! This week’s Nuun-drinking game: Toss some back whenever someone says the words “hot dog.” (Just be careful to not spew the hydration while laughing!) In the intro, the two running buddies reminisce about their June trip to Alaska, and SBS shares an update about her elderly mother. The TMI expert hops on at 18:55.

  1. Listening to this podcast this morning, I had to stop and openly guffaw in the middle of my run! It was not possible to laugh so hard and keep running!
    On a very different note, Sarah, you may have read “The 36 Hour Day” already, but I find it useful for helping my mom with her dementia.

  2. I AM LAUGHING SO HARD MY COWORKERS KEEP CHECKING ON ME! this is by far my favorite episode! Molly is absolutely hilarious!
