Can't get enough cycling into your life? We have the solution: the Cyclingnews weekly podcast, available every Thursday (except when it's not).

Cyclingnews editor Daniel Benson and I are doing them, with the focus being what's going on on the pro racing circuit.

You can subscribe to the podcasts via iTunes (or just go to iTunes and search for 'cyclingnews') or via this XML feed: http://video.cyclingnews.com/podcasts/cn_podcast.xml

If you do listen to them, please give us some feedback so that we can improve them for you. Otherwise it's 20 minutes of your life wasted, and we wouldn't want that.

In this week's podcast we speak to David Millar, Taylor Phinney and Jens Voigt.

We'll keep you posted as soon as it's ready.
This is shaping up to be an epic podcast (especially the Voigt interview). You'll have to change your name to Cecil B. DeBenson.

Looking forward to it.

So far though it's been a bit like listening in on a conference call, it's a bit dry at times.

But I'm downloading them all of course.

Have you heard the Carr?ment V?lo show on RTL-L'Equipe? They too cover the week's cycling news but make it a bit more lively, partly through background music but mainly with more lively analysis and debate. The live interviews with riders over the phone are good - sounds like you're on to something similar with the interviews this week.

I agree they've been a bit dry so far - we've got to get tighter in the scripting (hah!) and editing. And some actual preparation time goes a long way. But I think the next one will be better.

Music's pretty much banned unless we own it. Our enormous podcast budget does not extend to giving actual money to the PRS for Music. Instead, we typically blow it all on cups of water from the water cooler.

But one day I hope we can include a chariot race in the podcast. And lots of elephants.

Right, episode 4 with Jens Voigt interview (warning, explicit language), David Millar interview (probably no explicit language although we can't be certain) and Heinrich Haussler (no explicit language and not even an interview) is now online here: http://video.cyclingnews.com/podcasts/episodes/Episode_04.mp3

XML feed: http://video.cyclingnews.com/podcasts/cn_podcast.xml

This one's a shade over 23 minutes long and still doesn't have elephants in it.

Lol. Jens!

BoneAn

Hello
As an expat Englishman in Holland any good podcast is excellent and a cycling one is even better!

2 things - 3 people make it all flow a lot more easily, I run a great many webinars and all our work shows 3 is ideal.

Secondly, please please pronounce tornado Tom as Bone-An not boooonan a double OO in Dutch/ Flemish is pronounced 'owe'

He may be becoming increasingly agitated with Cav whooping him (the press coverage over here is great) but he deserves an 'owe'!

Right im off to ride the kinderkopjes (childrens heads) on Saturday :D

Three is better than two, we know. We'll get there.

The problem with Bonen vs Booonen is that we anglicise a lot of names anyway (not just Boonen, but Pozzato, Zabel, Tour of Flanders, Paris etc - where do you draw the line?). We make a reasonable attempt, but because we go out to a mostly English speaking audience it makes sense to use English pronounciations. Otherwise it just sounds like we're trying too hard and we're definitely not.

Likewise, it doesn't bother me that Dutch speakers pronounce London as Lon-den. Or my name as 'sjef' (or even 'sjefke')

Breaking news, Episode 7 is now downloadable. It's longer than any of the others, but not necessarily better. You be the judge.

What's in it? Paris-Roubaix (lots), Amstel Gold (a bit) and Lance Armstrong, the AFLD and crazy theories.
