    Skatecast #21 with Chris Howarth, 1980 Olympian and commentator on British Eurosport. He talks about competing in the days against John Curry and Robin Cousins, and about how he started in commentary.

    #25 with Alexander Fadeev. We did this interview in a dingy hockey locker room. Yuck! But it was the only quiet place in the building with an outlet. Another guy who should have had an Olympic Gold medal. Sigh.

    #26 with Michael Cook, the off-ice trainer at SC Boston.

    Alexandr was on fire in 1985. He really raised the bar both technically and performance - wise in Tokyo at the World championships.

    The quadrennium from 1985 - 1988 featured so many strong male skaters, it was quite something that three world champions, Fadeev, Boitano, and Orser were the medal favourites heading into the Calgary Olympics.

    Agreed about Fadeev. His programs in particular are really very impressive still today.

    #24 with Lorin O'Neil is up. He's the only person to have skated in all three ice shows: Holiday on Ice, Ice Follies and Ice Capades. He also is a coach and choreographer.

    I like the podcasts. I play them when I am stuck alone at the office working late. I chuckled at your comment to Frances Defoe about the knitted skating outfits - I thought everyone grew up wearing those!

    Hi Manleywoman,

    Really hope you manage to sort out an interview with Dick Button.

    Enjoyed listening to all your interviews, particularly the one with Barbara Ann Scott. Fascinating stuff! What a legend she is

    One of my favorite interviews to do, because she invited me to her lovely home, we had a great time in her kitchen, and because she's 100% interesting: SkateCast #29 with Slavka Kohout, Part 1 and Part 2.

    I had forgotten her hilarious story about Scott Hamilton. I have to remember to ask him about it if I ever get an interview with him.

    SkateCast 32 with Barlow Nelson. He was a high-level judge, and a student of Maribel Vinson's along with Frank Carroll and Ron Ludington. He has great things to say about Maribel, the 2002 Pairs judging scandal (especially the French judge LeGougne), what it was like judging Rudy Galindo's 1996 free skate, and his positive impressions of Tonya Harding.

    I learned a great deal from the interview with Mr. Nelson; about all the above, and more.

    Thanks skatesindreams! Some of the more obscure interviewees make for the most interesting interviews.

    #33 with Jennifer Kirk is now transcribed.

    Just wanted to say thanks for these interview transcriptions! I don't always have time to sit down and listen to them, so it's much easier to be able to read them.

    I don't know if these are being done in any particular order, but I'd love to read Yuka Sato's interview.
