Podcast 2016 Episode 8 – Depths of Nerdery

Podcast logoThis week we talk up a storm about all the racing that’s happened over the last week (and how it’s nice to get live video this week!). We catch up on Drenthe, Drentse8 and the ABSA Cape Epic. There’s another very open video from Wiggle High5 about their performance on the weekend. There’s been some really interesting articles come out that caught our attention as well – and as always we have heaps of links, videos, articles and more in the post below. Dan doesn’t actually pick a fight with anyone this week but we do invent a new board game. It’s a long one and it plumbs new depths of nerdery! (1:23:02 MIN / 76.02 MB)

Podcast 2014 Episode 11 – Ronde van Amazing

Podcast logoWe wrap up the Ronde van Vlaanderen, talk about the Redlands Classic in the US (and how it’s not that fucking hard to provide some race footage!). We review a lot of blogs and videos we’ve seen through the week including ride blogs from Chloe Hosking, Gracie Elvin and Emma Johansson, and a great video from Matrix Vulpine. There’s also a great video from Caroline Buchanan and some more blogs from Anika Todd, Accidento Bizarro and a completely left-field shout-out to our mate Laura Moo. We quickly glance ahead to Energiewacht Tour and wonder where in the world the Tour of Thailand is (we’re pretty sure it’s in Thailand actually, but haven’t been able to confirm this online). Enjoy!

We really loved Accidento Bizarro’s blog on  how harassment can be just like riding a bike – it’s a great analogy, and she always write really well, you should definitely read it.

And once you’ve read that – read this!  Chloe Hosking‘s profile of all-round superstar, bike genius and our heroine, Ina-Yoko Teutenberg

We ask you to weigh in on whether or not toasters are sexist. Sarah accuses Dan of being evil and we chat about Sarah’s podcasting exploits, cycling themed cakes, team launches, cool videos, amateur dentistry and snakes that eat crocodiles!

Podcast 2013 Episode 39 – Monique Hanley Teaches Us How To Change the World

Podcast logo This week we interview one of Dan’s cycling heroes! Monique Hanley joins us to talk about cycling administration and culture change. Monique is on the Executive Board of Cycling Victoria and the Women’s Commission for Cycling Australia, and she’s worked on a lot of significant projects within those roles over the last few years. Her list of achievements are many and yet she’s still gracious, humble and looking ahead to the next challenges. It’s a great interview into a side of the sport that we don’t get to hear all that much about very often. Dan’s especially excited when Monique explains to him how it’s theoretically possible to get himself appointed to all the UCI cycling commissions. It’s a cracking interview, enjoy!
