    GYMKATA This week, the episode Jessica and Spencer have been training in the woods for their whole lives: Gymkata. In 1985's action film spectacular, the dear departed Kurt Thomas must travel to the very real and geographically consistent nation of Parmistan to try to survive THE GAME, a totally unnecessary obstacle course where people kill you at the very beginning. We discuss:
    For a closed central Asian nation, everyone sure is American and can come and go as needed Very 3-dimensional female characters with clear goals and lines (JKKKKKKK) MULLETS Men holding giant birds for no reason Cool technological weapons, like a...little axe? That thing where you find a dead body and hear a BOIYOINGGGGG sound The most accurate depiction of US military presence in Asia ever committed to film A horse just decking some dude An actual character named Thorg How Kurt Thomas is fully, unironically good at action movie The "Village of the Crazies" and how it gets DARK A guy in a white robe with the butt cut out (!) And of course, the iconic town square pommel horse fight: featuring RANDOM GOAT JOIN CLUB GYM NERD

    LEOTARDS Disclaimer: We like you as a worthwhile and beautiful human person, even if your leotard is objectively a garbage fire This week, Lauren from the gymter.net reunites with Jessica and Spencer to goof about leotards for a while. We discuss:
    What is the sign of a perfect leotard? Is it even a leotard at all? Why your leotard shouldn't make us think about leather hammocks The superhero leo trend. Where is it going next? Is it possible to lean in to a theme...too hard? Pride and BLM leos, plus actual skin color inclusion (what a concept!) Gold and flags. Stop. Don't. The Unitard revolution The gravity defying backless trend strengthens and of course, crotch fashion. Why compromise is the enemy of good leos Vagina teeth, boob towels, werewolf attacks, lace, corsets, paintballs, and ruffles feature in the House of Horrors Slideshow JOIN CLUB GYM NERD

    NCAA Championships: A Victory for Execution (and Curses)

    NCAA Championships: A Victory for Execution (and Curses)

    NCAA Gymnastics Championships We discuss Suni's interview about whether (and how long) she's going to stay at Auburn Oklahoma is the national champion! How they did it despite a bad start, how they fought for every detail on the final three events, and how Spencer singlehandedly inspired them to victory How Florida successfully avoided a Florida postseason implosion but lost the title on vault, and the equipment problem in the semifinal that made everyone have to swaddle Trinity Jessica explains the very rare Triple Jinx that kept Utah in third place, and why Auburn was the second happiest group of people in Texas Rage about the lack of individual title acknowledgement and the AUDACITY to STAND UP and MOVE AROUND during certain routines Trinity Thomas won the all-around and two event titles, and Megan Skaggs surprised for 3rd AA as a perennial leadoff gymnast Michigan. Sigh. Stellar performances from Missouri and Minnesota to finish 5th and 6th. Man Things
    Kensley is here to recap men's gymnastics nationals including the inevitability of Stanford's victory, Oklahoma's lineup strategy, and Paul Juda's all-around victory over Brody Malone When everyone qualifies to nationals, it's a problem Plus, when are men's and women's nationals going to the same site?

Excellent!

I love Jessica and Spencer’s dynamic! They have a great banter and all the latest gym news. Love it! I look forward to this podcast as well as behind the scenes every week.

LOL

Literally the best podcast ever! I look forward to every week’s podcast more than anything. Jessica and Spencer are absolutely hilarious, informative and will always give you the inside scoop that every gym nerd needs.

One thing that does get on my nerves is the preaching Jessica often does about Covid. They’re based out of California… and I’ll leave it at that.

Jessica’s politics…

I have a love/hate relationship with this podcast. I became a Club GymNerd member right before the Tokyo Olympics and stayed for NCAA. I absolutely love Spencer. He’s hilarious and I think he and Jessica play off each other nicely. But I’m running out of patience with Jessica’s constant pushing of her political opinions and “woke” agenda. I respect the knowledge and passion she has for the sport of gymnastics, but find her constant need to bring politics into literally everything off-putting and annoying. Also, it seems like Jessica has a lot of disdain for white people, which I find confusing since I’m pretty sure she’s white.
