Bonus: Banners, Flower Crowns and Figure Skating - Transcript

Lae: So, all we've touched on so far have talked about banners that have been professionally printed and designed digitally, but do we have any advice on making handmade banners, such as what materials to use or is printing kind of the go-to?

Gabb: I use printed just because I have a degree for it. It's easier for me, I know how to work with printers. But you can easily just make handheld banners yourself using paper.

Kat: [laughs] Lae sitting outside the rink at ACI drawing Yuzu and Wakaba banners!

Becs: The 4am Wakaba banner sketching session!

Lae: Yeah, from experience, you can just buy an A3 size piece of card and buy some gold stickers and a permanent marker. Honestly, it's just the thinking and it's the design that goes into it.

Kat: It's the thought that counts!

Episode 35: Photography and Figure Skating (feat. Interview with Joosep Martinson) - Transcript

Becs: Good costumes are such a draw in terms of just being like "Yes yes you are worthy!"

Gabb: Especially if they're sparkly!

Becs: Yes sparkles please!

Kat: Aka Ice Dance ladies.[Gabb: Yes!] 90% of the time deliver with their costumes.

Becs: Yes. One thing that is so beautiful about picking who you're going to photograph is ah Ice Dance ladies and ladies in general show up looking usually fabulous most practices even so...

Kat: And then you have the men with like 80% black costumes or monochrome.

Becs: Yeah it's tragic, it's a tragic contrast.

Tales of the Blade: Ulrich Salchow - Transcript

Tilda: It seems that was just the way he was because he also offered one of his past medals to Dick Button. [Karly: My dude!] in 1947, and Dick Button at that point came second but Salchow felt that he should have won and a lot of people agreed because people were super salty about judging here. [Salchow] was like, you should have won here -- have this medal!

Karly: Ulrich seems like a pretty respectful dude. You know, giving away his gold medal to who he thinks rightfully should have won. That takes some stripe of character.

Tilda: Right but it's also very savage if you're not competing.

Karly: That is also savage. He's like, I beat you but I'll give it to you.

Tilda: Yeah, at this competition with Dick Button, he wasn't even competing. It was like this other dude who won. Gerschwiler won and then Ulrich was like, no.

Karly: [laughs] “You did not win. Uh-uh, not on my watch.”

Tilda: It was like really savage.

Episode 29: World Figure Skating Championships 2019 - Transcript

Yogeeta: Peng and Jin's short is probably my favourite Short Program from the pairs from the entire season, and the fact that they were a fully rotated triple Sal away from getting bronze just causes my anxiety.

Kat: Listen, Sals are cursed for the Chinese pair girls.

Kite: They're cursed for everybody as we will talk about.

Yogeeta: Sals are snakes, we don't like them, they don't go here.

Kat: Yeah, I know. Although, I sacrificed something to the sal gods for Wenjing landing that Sal in the free, because I was like…

Yogeeta: Yeah, you sacrificed Yuzuru's Sal!

Kite: We really got to be more specific next time.

Episode 26: Four Continents Championships 2019 - Transcript

Kat: Oh my goodness! Guys seeing them live is just like...it's just like...they're so magical and perfect and...honestly it feels like the Pairs' field has finally validated its' existence with them back again.

Evie and Kite: *laughter* Ouch!

Kat: Honestly, I feel like the Pairs' field has just been dwindling and now they are back and Pairs is finally a thing again!

Evie: James and Cipres I'm so sorry!

Kat: I'm so sorry I love them so much! But Sui and Han are just the class of the Pairs' field. I think that...I love James/Cipres and you've heard me crying about them multiple times.

Kite: I've seen you crying about them multiple times.

Episode 24: European Championships 2019 - Transcript

Evie: It was a really great send off for his career, as you said Kite, the choice to use these two programs this season; not only have those programs gotten him some of the biggest achievements in his career before but they are also so uniquely Spanish and they say so much about his as a skater.

Kat: In case we were wondering which country he was from...

Evie: (sarcastically) What?! Javi is Spanish? What?

Kat: This is completely new information.

Kite: Exactly.

Episode 21: Junior Grand Prix Final - Transcript

Evie: Let's go on to talking about the Junior Grand Prix Final! We talked about the Seniors last week and we're here talking about the Juniors this week. It's the end of the road for the Juniors and the end of Ted's commentary for a while, which makes me sad.

Kat: I mean, I obviously didn't hear Ted's commentary because I was there but I will miss it a lot. I did miss his commentary during the event.

Evie: They should just broadcast it in the arena.

Kat: Yeah!

Episode 20: Grand Prix Final 2018 - Transcript

Evie: So in today's episode we're going to be talking about the 2018 Grand Prix Final. Yay!

Kat: Can't believe it's over!

Evie: It's crazy that it's already at an end.

Tilda: The series is over!

Kat: Yeah, it was amazing like after the last event ended it was just like "Wow... it's over."

Evie: The season is going way too fast.

Tilda: It feels like it's lasted a year or something.

Episode 19: Internationaux de France 2018 - Transcript

Kat: We never would have been able to tell that it was a hexagon, just because everyone was holding it.

Dani: Guys, real talk, do you think that they're going to run out of shapes at one point?

Kat: Who knows, maybe they'll just stick with this the whole time.

Dani: I'll say that 2019 will have squares or triangles.

Tilda: I do wonder if it's like building a brand as avant-garde, you know?

Episode 15: Skate Canada 2018 - Transcript

Nina: Paul needs to keep his moustache shaved.

Kat: Oh god, yeah.

Kite: He kept it out for the Rhythm Dance and shaved it for the Free Dance, I didn’t even recognise him when he came out for Free Dance practice. I was like “Oh my god, that’s Paul.” He looked like 15 years younger than he did 24 hours ago, just because he shaved his moustache.

Kat: Please do not do that, Paul, if you’re listening. Please just get rid of the moustache.

Nina: Paul, more flower crowns, fewer moustaches.
