    US Pair skater John Zimmerman was (with Kyoko Ina) 3-time US champ, 2002 World Bronze medalist and 5th at the 2002 SLC Olympics. He talks about his reverence for his coaches, including Peter Oppegard and Tamara Moskvina, his appearance on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and his new career as a coach and founder of Karisma Sportswear.

    Listen to the interview here or when it finds its way to the iTunes Store.

    There's a giveaway with this one: John and Silvia are giving away a pair of women's pants from Karisma. You have until June 11 to enter.

    Thanks and enjoy!

    Does he know he was PSOTY once? (At least, I think he was.) I remember someone telling John Kerr he'd won and telling us he was quite pleased :)

    I'm not sure, but I'd guess yes. I know he reads FSU. ;) And no, I have no idea what his screen name is, if he has one.

    Finally had the chance to listen to this. Great interview. I would of loved to watch John and Silvia on the Amazing Race, too bad they didn't get it! The only other thing I would of like to touch on was his thoughts on becoming a Father for the first time.
