CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS! Dispatch Radio seeks participants in Colorado for a short-term (July through September) research project and podcast documentary series focused on “runner’s high,” the naturally occurring feeling of effortlessness some people experience while running.

Here’s a link to the application (DEADLINE: June 20)


To be eligible you must:

  1. Have an interest in the topic of runner’s high. For example, you may have never experienced runner’s high but want to, or you may have experienced runner’s high and want to know more about what causes it.
  2. Be available to for group interviews in Boulder in July/August and mid/late September (in person strongly preferred; remote option may be available); and
