In the News

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.
