Nobody Asked Us with Des & Kara

May 14, 2024

"The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last." - Willy Wonka.

Sadly (or happily?) it didn't last...

In this episode, you learn a little bit more about me (the podcast editor and show-notes writer) and what it's like to be a third wheel to two of the best to ever do it. Mine is the wobbly wheel to be sure. 

You learn about how my role in this project came to be including some "behind-the-scenes" stories from the very beginning. We answer "pressing" questions like:

  • How did I get to know Des and Kara in the first place?
  • How was the theme song chosen, especially in a period where Des and Kara were still feeling each other out?
  • What's it like to run with Des at 5:15 am when she is going on 3 hours of sleep and sweating tequila through every pore?
  • Are you still Texan if you've lost your accent and don't own cowboy boots?
  • What does Willy Wonka have to do with any of it?

Then, we cover truly-pressing, nobody-asked-us topics such as the newly selected Kenyan marathon team and how Kosgei became the third wheel there. Gasp! Kara says the "N**e" word and shares some top-secret intel on the selection process, as we all daydream about how big and fun a Kenyan marathon trials could be.

Plus naturally, you get our belated reaction to Beyonce's new album. It's not quite the TSwift level of discussion, but Jolene and Dolly and Miley all get appropriate mentions. 

We finish with the Oiselle "Underbird" segment of the week and a "Top 4" that you won't want to miss if you care at all about the NAU word contest.
