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.

Recap: CS US International Figure Skating Classic 2018

The Challenger Series made it’s first stop in North America this week in Salt Lake City for the US International Figure Skating Classic. This event hosted a contingent of 5 pairs, 11 men, 7 ice dance teams, and 15 ladies. All vying for a spot on the podium and points toward their world rank.

This event saw the season debut for many top skaters, marking first looks at new programs costumes and improvements from last season. All event results information, including protocols, can be found here.

Bonus Episode: Figure Skating in Fiction - Transcript

Lae: It’s not a very big genre of movie and - apart from I, Tonya perhaps, they’re not Oscar winning productions by any means, but as figure skating fans we take what we can get and this is just a fun discussion revolving around the things that we do have. So slim pickings, but it’s fine.

Kat: Beggars can’t be choosers.
