Episode 39: A jaunt to Paris, an interview with Race Imboden

Sean and Gav go to Paris for the Challenge International de Paris and spend all weekend working. While in Paris we met up with the lovely Arianna Scarnecchia of PianetaScherma who have kindly allowed us to share an interview with Race Imboden. While we are in Paris, elsewhere in Europe Heidenheim men's epee was in full swing. It’s a stupidly big competition and sees the first run out of the new non-combativity “Unwillingnes to Fence” rules. Katowice women's foil sees a mixture of the familiar and the new.

Note: You’ll hear some heavy breathing in the background. You’re not hearing an asthmatic pug, Gav picked up a cold while he was in France!

Episode 29: The "Names" episode & Sean talks to Georgina Usher

Shout out to our sponsors over at Leon Paul. There's rumours of a new wireless project on the go... we're very curious!

It's episode 29! Sean and Gav discuss names. Specifically Hungarian names.... it seems we get them all wrong. To help us all YouTuber CyrusofChaos has produced this helpful video*.  Continuing with this theme Gav noticed that French, french grip epee, fencer Laurence Epee. We think she is the most approriately named athlete in the sport. We're struggling to find anyone better - can you?

Sean catches up with Georgina Usher and this time it's all about her career. Some interesting insights both into the politics of our sport from her youth and also what it takes to "make it".
