We’re pleased to announce a new collaboration between RKP and Fat Cyclist called the Paceline Podcast. It’s a joint production that spans all of cycling. RKP’s Michael “Hottie” Hotten hosts Fatty and me as we survey the cycling landscape. This will be a weekly production and quite different from the editorial content on either RKP or Fat Cyclist.
I love good radio. These days, modern life doesn’t often permit me to listen to the shows I wish to hear at the times they air. So I listen to podcasts. And then there’s stuff like Serial and the Fattycast, which are strictly podcasts. But loving a thing isn’t anything like doing a thing.
I mean, I love great art, but I know better than to try to be a painter.
With that admission out there, following conversations with Hottie (whose day job is radio) and a few other people, and a fun afternoon spent jawing with Fatty and the Hammer when they were in town for Levi’s GranFondo, I began to see the possibilities.
We recorded a test show and it turned out to be terrific fun. And I’m much better at talking than I am painting. So there’s that.
What it is
It’s almost easier to say what the Paceline is not. Where RKP is long form, the Paceline isn’t. The segments are brief and benefit from a variety of opinions, not just those of a single writer. The show is also just an hour long. Perfect for a quiet ride in the woods. The show will be current in a way we don’t much pursue with RKP.
