GEISH 89 – 2014 in Review (Part 3)
February 28th 2015

As per usual, our sporting retrospective is a belated one. Our penultimate part features a crammed year in football, from Steven Gerrard’s slip, to the World Cup. Greg Blanchard from the Inappropriate Conversations podcast joins us.

P.S. This was a much longer episode, but due to the rough cut coming in at over 3 hours, we’ve cut it into two parts. Part 4 will be on the way soon. But I’m sure I’ve done such a good editing job that you won’t notice the difference.

GEISH 86 – Gabby Douglas And Dick, Kerr’s Ladies
November 2nd 2014

Shane looks back at the performance of Gabby Douglas during the gymnastics at London 2012. She was the first American gymnast ever to win both the team and individual all-around gold at the same Olympics, Given the nature of her story, the issues of race are also discussed.

Jonathan, realising he hasn’t marked the 100th anniversary the start of First World War, looks back at the rise of Women’s football during the war. The focus of the story is on the Dick, Kerr’s Ladies but also explains the downfall of the game after the war was over. (Hint – the men effectively banned it)
