The brand new, biweekly podcast from the team at Eventing Nation, hosted by Tilly Berendt and Leslie Wylie. It's the EN you know and love - except here, nothing's off-limits.
Episode 1: Lockdown, Lucinda, and the Fine Art of Crying at Five-Stars
Welcome to the very first episode of Insanity in the Middle, the brand new podcast from Eventing Nation! We're excited to have you with us. We're even more excited about the wine we've stockpiled for recording purposes. So who are we, anyway? Well, I'm Tilly Berendt, EN's British correspondent, and I'll be (ineffectually) ring-leading this week's episode with my glamorous co-host, EN editor-in-chief Leslie Wylie. We're celebrating our long-awaited launch with a bumper episode of boozy chit-chat, covering such diverse topics as: Leslie's life of lockdown crime; the exciting extra class planned at Fair Hill's inaugural CCI5*; the role of moustaches in eventing; a theory: does everyone in the sport have an embarrassing story involving Andrew Hoy? And much, much more! We're also delighted to welcome our very first guest into the Lockdown Lowdown, an interview series with a twist: each episode, we'll take a person of note from the sport and send them into a hypothetical (and rather lonely) quarantine situation. They'll be stuck in self-isolation with two films, two books, and a horse to keep them company (and all the arena accoutrements they could possibly need - actually, this quarantine sitch doesn't sound too shabby...). They'll also get a free pass for a social distancing dinner with any person they choose. This week's guest? None other than the Queen of Badminton herself, Lucinda Green.
