GUESTS: “THE ARMSTRONG LIE” DIRECTORS FRANK MARSHALL & MATT TOLMACH; ICEDOT.ORG CEO CHRIS ZENTHOEFER
Now that the “Truth Tap” is open and flowing with the misdeeds of Lance Armstrong, there is a library of books and a multiplex of movies coming out on the subject. This week we bring you a conversation with the producers of a new documentary about Armstrong entitled The Armstrong Lie. Frank Marshall and Matt Tolmach talk with Diane about the years-long process of getting this film made and their reasons for making it.
In the second half of today’s Outspoken Cyclist, we turn our attention to the ugly subject of crashes and injuries. If you ride a lot of solo miles, how will you summon help if you’re incapacitated by a crash? It’s hard to dial that cell phone if you’re unconscious. IceDot has developed an impact sensor that pairs with your Bluetooth-equipped cellphone, and texts your pre-configured contacts if it detects a crash. First responders can also use IceDot to access your identity and medical information on-scene. There is more to tell than I can fit here, so listen to Diane’s interview with one of the IceDot developers, Chris Zenthoefer.
