    First show features an interview with Max Aaron. I'm guessing there will be videos available after the show has aired.

    Aaron's interview was taped after Skate America -- he talks about his competition experience in Detroit and his upcoming GP (NHK Trophy), among other things.

    Thanks for posting the link, TanithandBenFan!

    This weeks episode included a short report about Cup of China. I give the announcers full credits for getting the names right. They didn't even sound as though they were struggling.

    Tonight's new episode included a report on NHK. Also an interview with Lindsey Vonn. The other program that has regular figure skating reports is Podium 360. I wish any of the other "sports" networks had such a program.

    11/20/13 episode includes a report on Trophee Eric Bompard. No other figure skating noted. Most of the program was centered on long track speed skating.
