jane325 ,

love most of the podcasts under the mtb radio umbrella

adore ‘just riding along’ ! ‘thepath’ is good too but really focused on california and sometimes gets too much into evokes so i forward through those parts

12442245 ,

Tani is entitled woke and has no mechanics

Path is tani’s soapbox for recruiting mechanics
Tani is very cheap in paying techs that is why dream gigs south of the path entice everybody to keep leaving.

JRA?

What happened to JRA? I like the Path, but the real gold was the JRA show. Are they ever coming back from the coal mines?
