Podcast 2014 Episode 16 – Borsele is the Bestest-ay

Podcast logoG’day gang! This week Sarah’s on a deadline because she’s so famous and has important interviews and uni meetings to run off to. Which means we race against the clock to discuss Borsele, Westhoek, the Cairns MTB World Cup, the Cheshire Classic in the UK and of course, La Course by Le TdF! Then we enter the lightning round and try to quickly wrap up all the blogs, videos and awesomeness around the internet before we run out of time! While it’s fast and punchy, it’s filled with all the good stuff. This week Dan turns the tables on Sarah and limits HER ranting (about podium boys and so on) while also letting slip by “accident” exactly when Sarah’s birthday is. Basically everything you want to know from the week that was, leading into the week that will be, is in this podcast… so enjoy! (45:09 MIN / 43.34 MB)

To stream the most birthday-ish podcast about Sarah’s birthday, wait a week or so, but in the meantime click this one here!

  1. Thank you Sarah and Dan as always!

    Just a heads up – I was listening to this week’s BMJ podcast, which is usual;ly dry and medical – but this weeks topic is “The problems with testosterone testing in female athletes”, thought you might be interested. For instance I never knew that female atheletes used to be karyotyped as a mandatory thing, or that that had stopped, or that “partial clitoridectomy” is still a thing.

    Sounds like anti-doping is extremely confused on issues of sex and gender identification. Who could have guessed?

    • Oh, *interesting*. I know that there are a hell of a lot more people who are “intersex” than people think – and the laws in Germany and Aus that came in recently, allowing children to be classified as X on bith certs, rather than M or F, rather than the rush to perform surgery….
