This week Jessica and Evan (Uncle Tim has laryngitis!) chat about:
- Coverage of the Winter Olympics so far (hint, O’Beirne is furious).
- Should NCAA judges be paid equally no matter where the meet is held?
- CNBC’s Soviet-born reporter translated the shocking things Russia’s “Rossiya-2 Sport” channel is saying about gymnasts and their bodies.
- The Gabby Douglas movie – an O’Beirne review.
- The latest 10s in NCAA, who was robbed of a 10 and the polar vortex takes it’s first gymnastics victim.
- Leotards that made us want to light a bonfire and dance around it until Project Runway rescues us.
- A listeners’ Valentine’s day letter of gratitude to her coaches.
- And then! The little sound bite Jessica has been saving forever! Svetlana Boginskaya and her husband tell us both sides of their love story.
