  1. Hi guys!

    Reaching out to see if you’d be open to having a fellow cycling junkie on your podcast, Jeff Mahin! He’s the chef turned entrepreneur behind Split Nutrition, the first-ever nut butter and jam spread packet. He developed it thanks to his love for fitness (especially cycling) and needing an on-the-go snack that was made of real food and was really good for you! Think he could be a great guest to chat about his cycling journey, how it brought him better health and inspired Split!

    Hope to speak soon!


    1. Sounds very interesting… Let me see how the schedule goes next week. This week I’m up against a huge deadline. Thanks, Diane

  2. Hey Diane & the Outspoken podcast team,

    An Englishman, an Irishman and a Vietnamese guy walk into a bar…

    I know this sounds like the start of a bad dad joke, but it’s actually the beginning of an incredible startup story. One that involves pet chickens, flash floods, shady investors, and how a 23 year old entrepreneur from Ireland, an English advertising guy and a Vietnamese engineer got together to design a smart, integrated bicycle tail light that will change the way we think about safety and security when we ride.

    It’s quite the adventure, and I think it’ll make for a compelling piece of content for the show.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    1. How could I resist that intro? I took a look at your web site and the product is very interesting. My first question though is what happens when you have a rack and/or seat pack on the back of the bike? The light would be covered.

      Let me know and we can still talk at some point. Thanks for getting in touch.

  3. Hi,
    I’m from reTyre – a trending Norwegian tyre company. We are exploring ways to reach more audience and introduce our products to people, and I noticed Out Spoken Cyclist would be a great fit for us.
    May I have the price quotation for a paid advertising collaboration?
    We would love to have an opportunity to work with you this year.

  4. Hello, I have a great story for your podcast. Cycling is alive and growing in Los Angeles. And, the real gem is the Los Angeles River. It has uninterrupted bike path for miles. Learn the history and the riding stories on the LA River. This June 7th, there is the 20th Annual Los Angeles River Ride – the largest organized ride in Los Angeles!!!

  5. Hi Diane!

    I came across your podcast through WiSP and listening to some of their interviews! I’m so excited I found you!

    I am reaching out because I was wondering if your listeners might be interested in how nutrient deficiencies (going beyond the most commonly known iron, vitamin D etc) can impact performance and health. It’s something I work with in my clinic and I see it a lot with all athletes, but it isn’t talked about nearly as enough as we need to!

    If this is something you think might be an interesting interview for your podcast please let me know! I’d be happy to have a short 3-5 minute conversation to discuss it further.

    Thanks again!

  6. Hello!
    I was on the show a few years ago for Strider but I wanted to let you know about the new foundation we’re supporting. All Kids Bike a nonprofit organization with a mission to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class for free.
    The program equips schools with everything teachers need to teach children how to ride bikes, including teacher training, a structured 8-lesson curriculum, a fleet of 22 Balance Bikes, Pedal Conversion Kits, and helmets at no cost to the school – thanks to generous donors across the nation who are passionate about getting kids on bikes.
    I would love to have the opportunity to talk more about All Kids Bike on your podcast. Here is a quick video (less than 2 minutes) that gives a sneak peek into what they’re doing for the future of cycling: and here is the website with more information: It would be so amazing if we could spread the message about the cause to your listeners. I look forward to chatting more about it! Stay well and have a wonderful day!

  7. Aloha Diane and Brian, I found you online and your long-running podcast, background and story with your husband seemed a nice match. My husband Doug Adams and I did a crazy thing 10 years ago and I thought you might be interested in our fun story for one of your podcasts. Even crazier, we’re recreating it week by week for its 10th anniversary during this next year in our own podcast called “What Really Helps: Bike+RV+Dog= 50 States.” (I had no idea how hard putting together a podcast would be!) Doug cycled 18,067 miles in one year for Veterans, Military and their families. I learned to drive an RV and drove it 26,000 miles to support him. There’s lots more but if you’d like to check us out you can go to our website The podcast series is at the podcast tab of the website. I look forward to hearing from you. ❤️ Deb Lewis

    1. Hi Deb,

      Sorry it’s taken me a while to get back to you… geez! I didn’t realize how many messages were piling up in my podcast blog with all the requests I also get for interviews from publicists and more. Please email me at I promise I’ll get back to you in a much more timely manner. Diane

  8. Hello Diane and the team!

    What do moving to Italy, writing books and post-divorce therapy have in common? Bikes, apparently. Specifically, a solo bike tour I undertook alone and unsupported, starting from Berkeley, California and ending in St. Augustine, Florida. By the end of it, I had the first draft of a narrative nonfiction book that I am pitching to editors and agents, a new sense of power and purpose and had planned my subsequent move to Italy.

    Your amazing podcast has featured the likes of Gary Fisher, Phil Liggett and Kathryn Bertine. Past episodes have unearthed the birth of Strava and discussed how Covid-19 has affected the bike community at large. In short, you cover, as you said, “well, just about any topic that relates to the bicycle.”

    Something very much related to the bicycle is long-distance cycle touring. It’s become quite the rage and unless I’m mistaken, I haven’t seen much content on your podcast except for the fascinating interview with long distance cyclist Andrew P. Sykes. Would you be interested in interviewing me about the book and my experience as a lone female crossing the US?

    A little about me: I’ve been a bike tour guide and avid bike tourist since 2009. This passion has also taken me through much of California and Colorado and parts of Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Mexico, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, France and Italy. I have a degree in journalism from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and a decade of freelance writing, editing and — since moving to Italy in 2018 — translating (Italian to English). I currently live in a small town near Bologna.

    Thank you very much for your time and I hope to hear back from you soon.


    1. Hello Slyva,

      I’m sorry it’s taken me some time to respond to you comment on the blog. These messages tend to get lost in all the chaos that is the podcast sometimes. Please email me at and I will get back to you. I receive many, may email messages and so take a lot more time with email as it is often time sensitive. Thank you for reaching out. Diane

  9. Ep 503 / May 16, 2020 in the archive has the wrong audio. Same on Apple podcasts. Where could I listen to the BB interview?
