Equal parts annoying and interesting

I appreciate all the great information presented and the time they give to collecting and reporting on it.

But I struggle with Amanda’s repeating almost every comment she makes 2 or 3 times “yeah, it’s gonna be great, yeah John, it’s really gonna be great, it’s gonna be great, yeah…) and if I played the drinking game where you take a drink every time she says “I gotta tell you, John” or I have to tell you…” I’d be thoroughly inebriated halfway through every episode.

I also cringe at her calling instructors “my boy Jon” or “my girl Leanne” as if she owns them. Calling someone your boy is insulting to grown men and especially to men of color. Being from South Africa, maybe she does not know about the history of discrimination in America and how calling black men boys was a terrible part of that.

Both hosts brag about getting frequent shout-outs from instructors and about their connections with the instructors like they’re all best buddies who are messaging back and forth all the time. When Amanda’s tread broke down and she couldn’t get an appointment for a month, she bragged about getting special treatment, a technician visit the next day, thanks to her “boy” at the local showroom after saying how one of the instructors apologized to her because he didn’t have any connections to speed it up for her. Meanwhile regular members have their appointments repeatedly delayed and rescheduled.

Both hosts seem to be quite privileged and Amanda seems to have the money to buy endless quantities of peloton clothing and gear, and to travel between 2 homes plus NY and London.

Lastly the new feature of picks of the week from members—please just give the class picks and why they were liked. All those “shout outs” — reading the gibberish screen names—who cares! Or save the shout outs for last and give a warning that the show is over except for that.

Great podcast

This podcast is what gets me through going to work Monday am. Love hearing the pelo news and hearing about some new classes I probably wouldn’t otherwise take.
