So glad this podcast is a thing. Matt is a consummate professional and conversationalist. His curiosity and humor make for an excellent podcast. And that smooth London accents. Magnificent.
Matt Stephens could interview a duck and it would still be a terrific listen. He’s a human treasure.
Already the best cycling podcast
Just puts a smile on your face when ya listen to an ep. Matt’s a natural. I already listen to too many different cycling pods... Most are a bit humorless (or like Lance’s, peppered with jokes but unfunny), just dryly discussing race results and industry news. And I’ll happily listen to that because I love the sport and also don’t have a life. But this one is really unique, very lighthearted and not directly covering the news of the sport. It expresses the joy and color of bike racing in a way that’s missing in a lot of the industry’s media. Already my favorite.
