The Paceline Podcast

The Paceline Podcast

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.

You can find us here, or if you’re looking to download episodes to your iPod, just drop by the iTunes store where you can download us for free.

We hope you’ll give us a try.

    I’m a great fan of RKP. I am also a part of the Paceline Forum, the successor name to the Serotta Forum, lo these past four or five years. Forumites often cite your efforts, and we have what is perhaps one of the more cohesive and thoughtful bike communities on the web. Overlap of common names might be thought of as a common bond on the internet. With that in mind, and with the apparent nexus of our names for your recently developed podcasts, I hope that, as the occasion warrants, you will see fit to make note of our separate and sort of parallel path. We love the interest of new Forumites, particularly those who come with a deep interest in matters cycling.
    Thanks so much again for your very fine site, and contributions to our shared sport.

    Great podcast and Fatty I’ve never noticed you being self-absorbed. And if you are who cares. The whole point of you being on the podcast is to talk about your experiences.

    Great podcast, Found it over the summer. so have started somewhere in 2016 and have been listening to batches of podcasts at least 2 leadvilles! which for someone sitting 7500km away is interesting if only for not having to many similar experiences in the UK. Currently Hooked to the podcast. The 3 presenters make the show 1/2 serious show 1/2 conversation over a coffee which is an excellent mix. Keep it going!

    If you want to start beck with earlier podcasts I have found the change in dynamic over the last 18 months has been interesting. With “Hottie” being in charge and Eldon/Paddie playing Wingmen. To now Eldon in charge of the schedule!
    Hottie and Patrick are the more “Professional” journalists which does come off in interview and reviews with Eldon being much more off the cuff, excitable and conversationalist. Dropping subjects possibly not on the running order into the podcast that just seem to have the others wondering where it is going. Yes they can often be about his Cycling Mad famliy bordering on over sharing and his pilgrimage to Leadville, and then there is Leadville oh and did I mention Leadville? but they are always entertaining.
