    The latest MWSC is up!

    It's an interview with Jojo Starbuck. With partner Ken Shelley, she won three US titles, two World Bronze medals and was in both the 1968 and 1972 Olympics. We discuss her career on and off the ice, her love for performing, and her incredible story of why the Japanese Federation made her miss a skating practice at the Sapporo Games (um, she needed a SEX test!). The interview is 1 hour and 2 minutes.

    There's also a giveaway with this podcast: a $100 gift certificate to Rainbo Sports. Rainbo sells boots, blades, dresses, workout gear, DVDs, training aids, etc etc etc. The contest is open to anyone internationally. Details to enter are here.

    I don't get tons of entries for these contests (yet) so odds are good of winning! Certainly better than that latest Mega Millions lottery. :lol:

    Enjoy the interview!

    I loved how JoJo says, "Wow, you really did your homework."

    Great interview, Allison.
