I saw that Lance did a new podcast interviewing his old/new teammates before the 24 Hour of Old Pueblo. I’m actually in a bit of a hurry today, so didn’t get a chance to listen it yet, but am gonna.
I have heard a few of Lance’s podcasts, not all. I’ve found each to be pretty good. Very entertaining. The guy is pretty smart.
From the people that agree to do the podcasts with Lance, it is very obvious that many people don’t hold any animosity towards him. His doping was a non-issue in their minds. It is interesting thinking about that.
When I was talking with Lance on the phone, a couple years ago, I told him that if he acted piously, just plain sincere, then I believed most Americans would eventually treat him nicely. We have that in our DNA for some reason. We don’t hold long term grudges against “our enemies”. Not that Lance would qualify for that label. But, you understand what I’m saying.
I’m not going to not listen to his podcasts because I don’t agree with his actions. He gets some pretty interesting people. Very diverse. From Rahm Emanuel, to Bo Jackson, to the police chief of Houston, Seal, even T.J. Juskiewicz, the promoter of RAGBRAI.
Anyway, listen if you want. I have some driving to do, so plan on listening to a couple today.
