Karly: We've been knew we have no faith in men.

Evie: And it was just so crazy! The top ten were only separated by what? Like five points from each other?

Sam: Yeah like barely even that.

Evie: It was insane! And then in the Free Skate everyone kind of died so you know [laughter] parallels!.

Sam: The Free Skate sure did happen!

Karly: In the Free Skate, wasn't it only Roman who was clean?

Evie: He wasn't even clean though!

(Hosts laugh)

Episode 6: Figure Skating History - Transcript

Clara: So in the end, this has more or less morphed into something like a brief history of the last thirty years of figure skating, which is clearly more than anyone can cover in an hour, especially us, given how chatty we are liable to be. So take this as an upfront disclaimer, this is going to be a very whistle-stop tour and necessarily incomplete.

Episode 4: Judging Systems - Past, Present, and Future - Transcript

Sam: People who are super nostalgic for 6.0 always love to say things like ‘oh, the programs had more content’, ‘oh, the programs were better’, when in actuality, during the time, not to bring Scott back into this, but I think it was during Elvis Stojko’s 1998 short program, he made a comment: “oh, he actually takes the step sequence seriously”. So clearly, this whole mythos that everyone had packed transitions, everyone had packed content is just like - oh, we remember Michelle.

Lo: Yeah, we remember Michelle. We remember Alexei Yagudin. We remember the good stuff - the bad stuff was still very bad. The fact that they were given so much freedom means that people were free to not put very much content in at all. And you would see that. Go watch an old Olympics and you’ll see what I mean. So the idea that 6.0 was just universally artistic and beautiful is just absolute nonsense from someone who probably hasn’t been watching skating very closely in the past decade. Like if you don’t think that Mao Asada brings artistry, I don’t know what to tell you. Like, what are you talking about?

Episode 1: Media Accessibility - Transcript

Evie: Hello everyone! So this is the first episode of the podcast - exciting things! We’ve been talking about doing this for a while, and now it’s finally happening.

Karly: We’re very excited.

Lae: Yeah, and I think the reason why we started it was also, you know, increasing the accessibility of figure skating to new fans and old fans and also kind of offering an alternative perspective to the voices that already exist.

Evie: Definitely.

Tilda: Exactly, and more international perspective as well because we’re from several different countries here!

Lae: As you may be able to tell from all our amazing and possibly confusing accents.

Karly: There are a lot of accents.
