SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 2007:
This is the premiere episode, featuring an interview with World Champion skater Kurt Browning.

So, how did I land this interview for my very first podcast? By opening my big mouth actually. I had some (ahem) strong opinions on a few things Kurt said while doing commentary for the 2007 US National Championships. So I wrote into his website to offer some constructive criticism. I was polite and diplomatic, but I did say my thoughts. Much to my surprise, and through a few random events, he called me out of the blue to discuss my comments! And also much to my surprise, Stars on Ice happened to be coming to Chicago that weekend, so Kurt offered my husband and I free tickets and backstage passes! How incredibly gracious! He really didn't have to do that at all. But I'm glad he did! So my husband snapped a shot of us talking.

I have to say, I was very impressed with Kurt on all levels. He could have told me to bug off, but he really wants to improve as a commentator. So he took the time to listen to a fan. What a guy!
