The WITSUP, women in triathlon, podcast is a lot more than just swim, bike and run. It's all about getting to know the person behind the triathlete. What makes them tick. Who or what inspires them. What has driven them to be the person and the athlete they are today.

So imagine yourself joining me and your favourite triathlete for a chat over a coffee, or a wine if you prefer, and plenty of laughs.

    Katie Zaferes - Secreting Happiness

    When I told Katie Zaferes that we don't talk too much about triathlon in our podcasts, she suggested that we may run out of things to discuss because she was pretty damn boring (her words) outside of triathlon.

    I think we proved otherwise as we chat and chortle our way through this episode covering an array of topics from reading maps to terrible dance moves and all the things in between.

    Please enjoy my wonderful chat with the woman who oozes happiness, Katie Zee!

    Fenella Langridge - Selfie With A Goat

    Find out more about this lip-syncing, dog loving, craft making, nap taking, food loving, professional big kid, Fenella Langridge.

    Straight up I find out that she's currently in Morzine, France, which is where I have spent many weeks over European summers with The Buzz Cycling and Triathlon crew, so at first I was jealous, but now I'm living vicariously through her.

    Fenella is still relatively new to racing pro triathlon ... Watch this space!

    RAW Racial Diversity and Inclusion - Dr Shaunna Payne Gold

    RAW Racial Diversity and Inclusion - Dr Shaunna Payne Gold

    Introducing our new series, RAW, where I get the opportunity to have discussions with people about topics that might be a little awkward or uncomfortable, but are discussions that should be had.

    I have no issues in asking that “stupid” question, because I have an overwhelming thirst for learning and listening to stories.

    RAW is about starting, or continuing, a conversation, but true to our Witsup podcast form, I also want to get to know the person behind these conversations as well.

    Our first guest in this series is a woman who I will forever be a fan and a friend of, Doctor Shaunna Payne Gold. In her words she is a skilled educator, a fiery speaker, informative blogger, and passionate minister. She has stepped on to large stages and into small classrooms with her approachable style, self-deprecator humor, and high octane messages - I particularly love the last part of this sentence.

    You will find out more about who Shaunna is and then we dive into the topic of diversity and inclusion, and the Black Lives Matter movement.

    I feel we barely scratched the surface on this topic, but I like that this is a great way to start.

    Felix Walchshoefer - Passion, It's In His Blood

    Felix Walchshoefer - Passion, It's In His Blood

    This is only the second time we've had a Supportive Dude on our podcast, and it fills me with glee to welcome Felix Walchshoefer, CEO of Challenge Roth.

    This weekend I would have been at Challenge Roth (my second home) covering the event, and catching up with dear friends from across the globe. I've said it before, it's my favourite event, and a large reason why, is because of Felix.

    In our chat we talk about the history of the event, and his experience from a volunteer as a kid to the CEO at such a young age after his father passed away.

    I also find out that he wanted to be a pilot, that he forgot to eat the day before he competed in his own event, and we reminisce about the first time we met, when I punched him.

    Grace Thek - Gracie Lou Freebush

    Grace Thek - Gracie Lou Freebush

    First up, Grace brought me a coffee, so she wins the award for the best guest. To be fair to the other guests, I haven't recorded an episode face to face in a while, but still, COFFEE!

    Grace burst onto the triathlon scene when she put on a finish line performance in her debut pro race in 2018 that had the crowd screaming as she kept falling to her knees. She is still relatively new to the sport, so can come across a little shy, however, I've gotten to know her over the past couple of years, and have even let her dog-sit Henry, so she felt comfortable chatting away. She's full of energy and passion, and we talk long-distance relationships, LAN parties, racing her Dad, playing dentists (what?) and I teach her about one of the best action tv shows ever - ALIAS!

Where everyday life and triathlon intersect

Love the honesty of these interviews, the side tangents of all topics under the sun, the variety of interviewees. Next intro/outro (?) tune is fab.

Bad Audio Quality

I was very excited about this pod particularly cause I love Rinny however the audio was sooo bad it wasn't even listenable. I had it on in my car and had to crank the volume so high (likely would be too quiet for headphones) there was a noticeable high pitched sound and the interviewer's questions were not even decipherable :-( Great idea but clean up the audio and get Rinny back cause I would love to hear from her, thanks :D
