    Hey everyone. The latest Manleywoman SkateCast is (finally) up! It's an interview with the one-of-a-kind Barbara Ann Scott. She's the 1948 Olympic Champion, 4-time Canadian Champion, World/European/North American Champion, and the classiest woman in the sport of figure skating. We discuss her career on and off the ice, her numerous experiences with Sonia Henie, and why her little dog Pierre was her most embarrassing moment in skating.

    She also sent me two autographed photos of herself to giveaway to two lucky listeners. So please visit my site to see how you can win.

    Thanks!

    She had such a beautiful, lively spirit.
    It radiated even through her voice.
    Thanks again, manleywoman!
