The best all-around bike podcast

It is hard to find a solid, general interest bike podcast. I’ve learned about several large rides, tourist events, books, movies and tours thanks to Diane. Even found the right company to build my custom bike (Seven). What a wealth of knowledge from Diane - and even some racing or advocacy (which seems to dominate too many other podcasts). Thank heavens for The Outspoken Cyclist

Engages in partisan politics too much

Love her industry interviews , but she engages in way too much partisan politics . Amazing how we can’t just stick to cycling which is a topic all of her listeners download her podcast for .

I honestly wish there was someone who was capable in cycling podcast space of doing this.

As such I have no further use for this podcast

Keep out the politics please.

At every opportunity the host injects her politics. I’m just tired of it.
