    Hi everyone. So sorry to you fans who have had to wait for new episodes while I got the website redone.

    It's finished, and it's MUCH more user-friendly, both for users and for me, the lone admin. :) So now you can see all past episodes at once, plus listen from the site (and not need to have Quicktime :p) as well as subscribe several different ways. I hope you'll all participate by leaving comments, sending me information about figures for the figures page, and just spreading the word.

    And oh yes . . . Part 1 of Episode 41: Ice Capades is now up. It's soooo fun. I was invited to the 70th Reunion of Ice Capades in Las Vegas in June, and I had a magnificent time chatting with so many members, both famous and not famous, and also from the 1940s up to the 1990s. You'll learn a LOT about not only Ice Capades but how the ice shows operate. It's a blast.

    Part 2 will be up by next week, and then I've got George Spiteri (of SPTeri boots) and Barbara Ann Scott on deck.

    Thanks for all your patience!

    I love your new site; and appreciate your interviews so much.
    Skating history, as told by those who lived it: What could be better?

    Yes, WordPress. Sooooooo much better than what I had. I'm still learning about how a lot of it works, and I still want to change the design of the masthead a bit, but it's a far superior back-end.

    Part II of the Ice Capades episode went up today.

    Interviews with: coach Alex McGowan (who has many good Debi Thomas, Nicole Bobek, and Kimmie Meissner stories), Randy Gardner (who is the first person to curse on my podcast :lol:), Sarah Kawahara, and a lot of other Ice Capades folks.

    Hope you all enjoy.

    I listened to Part 2, and Alex McGowan is a scream.

    Isn't he? That's a whole podcast in itself. I'll have to get him for one.

    FYI to everyone: I'm going to start doing giveaways on the site. I will have monthly prizes, and so far I've gotten some amazing things to give away each month: a timeshare in Salt Lake City, Utah :eek:, and a free pair of SP-Teri boots! Details to follow on both of those. Thanks

    I listened earlier to the interview with Rory Flack and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't know that Rory had worked with Robin Cousins, Frank Carroll and John Nicks.

    It was a treat and I'm looking forward to listening to several more of the podcasts. It sounds exciting about your giveaways! :)
