Show #376 – November 25, 2017

Guests: Dr. Gabe Mirkin; Molly Hurford

Now that Thanksgiving is over, can we talk food? I mean the food we probably SHOULD be consuming!

This week, retired but still incredibly active, Dr. Gabe Mirkin will talk about how food affects us, what new breakthroughs are being found in cholesterol and diabetes research, and how important it is to continue exercising throughout your life.

I’ve got a couple of news items, a review of the new Gore-Tex ShakeDry jacket, and then it’s on to Belgium to catch up with Molly Hurford.

At 30 years old, she’s already written four books with a 3-book series for young girls at the publisher. She manages at least 3 blogs, or may it’s four, produces The Consummate Athlete podcast with her husband Peter, and is managing the Aspire Racing Team at the World Cup races in Europe right now.

We chat about all of that, including her “advice to women” and what’s next on her jam-packed agenda.

Show #297 – May 14, 2016

Guests: Dr. Gabe Mirkin; Historian David Herlihy

Two guests this week!

My first guest is one of the most knowledgeable and forward thinking people I know. Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who at 81 remembers more than most of us will ever know, discusses diet (and dieting), metabolism, fads, and what we need to do to maintain our health long into our 80’s, 90’s, and beyond.  (If you don’t subscribe to his weekly eZine… maybe you should!)

After the break, I talk with one of if not the most renowned historian in the field of bicycles. David Herlihy, who has been on the show several other times, is always full of facts, anecdotes, and historical stories no one else seems to be able to uncover.

His 2006 book, Bicycle: The History was named the #1 book on bicycles by Outside Magazine; and, The Lost Cyclist, which we explored on the show back in 2010 uncovered an old cold case with the probable conclusion of that happened to Frank Lenz.

Now, David’s new article in the June issue of Adventure Cyclist Magazine,Eastman & Overman” details the relationship of George Eastman (think Kodak!) and Albert Overman (who?). The story is rich in history and gives us a glimpse into the world of cycling from a perspective heretofore untold.

It’s a fabulous hour!
