Show #308 – August 13, 2016
Guests: NICA’s Austin McInerny & Kurt Wolfgang; Davis Tucker from NXNW in Austin
As the 2016 Olympics enter their second week, we’ve seen some big wins and some big disappointments.
Kristin Armstrong won her third consecutive gold in the individual time trial, setting a new record in the cycling world while 26 year old Taylor Phinney did not finish the Rio road race and was a distant 22nd in Wednesday’s time trial.
It’s been a great Olympics so far; we’ll see what happens next week.
This week, our show goes out to San Francisco to talk with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association’s executive director Austin McInerny and coach/development manager Kurt Wolfgang. Austin and Kurt fill us in on the numbers – how many states have teams, how many students are participating, and how the 2016-2017 school year will unfold for the organization.
Then we’ll do our news reporting before heading down to Austin, Texas to talk with the owner of restaurant NXNW and craft brewer Davis Tucker.
1 in 7 men will contract prostate cancer, so what Davis has to say is worth the listen
Davis’ work in getting the word out about prostate cancer and prostate health culminates in a Big 1400 mile, 2 week bike adventure from Austin to Denver, ending at the Great American Beer Fest. The story is funny, the topic serious and important.
