    I used to look forward to listening to this podcast but somewhere along the way you have lost your mojo.

  • All feedback is welcome, Joe! Care to be more specific?

    You prefer the shows with the “usual suspects”? The current bunch of guests haven’t been to your liking? My presentation/questionining/other isn’t as sharp as it used to be? You’d like different topics to be discussed? All of the above?

  • Chris Garrison

    Very curious about your comment, Joe. The timing of it, which follows an episode featuring two women who spend a significant portion discussing the challenges that women face in the sporting world, suggests that this sort of topic isn’t of interest to you.

    If that’s the case, then it’s worth recognizing that it is that view that makes our discussion necessary in the first place.

    I’m happy to be wrong about this, because there is no satisfaction in being right. Being right merely provides further evidence that what Anna and I already know about the bike industry is that it has a long way to go before it is fully inclusive.

    The South Australian state government was responsible for the equal prize money. Not the federal Australian government.

  • Thanks, yes, so I have been told!
