Episode 30: World Team Trophy 2019 - Transcript

Evie: It's quite disheartening that we have to go through this, especially when the IJS is, if you read it, a quite solid system if you base it just solely off what's written in the handbooks. If it's applied effectively, it would be a really solid judging system but it's not being used to its full advantage because judges aren't applying it fairly.

Yogeeta: The answer is clearly that we need robot tech callers and robot judges.

Niamh: That's at the next Congress.

Evie: Listen, they have to argue about whether music can be brought on a USB to a competition - I think we're a couple of centuries away from robots at this point. Let's be honest.

Episode 25: Canadian and US Nationals 2019 - Transcript

Yogeeta: And before we begin, US Nationals is unique in that they have four people on the podium and not three.

Karly: Yeah, they have a Pewter medal...

Niamh: Or a potato waffle.

(All hosts laugh)

Karly: A what now? Okay yeah, so it's unique - they have a pewter medal for fourth place, also affectionately called the potato medal, I don't know why it's called that but it is. Niamh called it a potato waffle. (Niamh and Karly laugh)

Gina: Javi’s not even dead yet!

Nina: Sometimes I can still hear his voice....

Red: The next event is Rostelecom in Russia. We’re going to see Yuzuru Hanyu and Mikhail Kolyada go up against each other – again. For the second time. Yuzuru will be the favorite for gold, but again it’ll depend on what we talked about earlier, about how his recovery from his injury went. Again, Mikhail Kolyada is definitely a contender for the podium, but he’s also pretty inconsistent.  

Kite: He got really just hammered by his assignments this season.

Yogeeta, Red: Yeah…

Kite: He’s really shoehorned into competing with some serious challengers, and, I mean, depending on how he places, there might be – he might not make the Grand Prix Final.
