    HOST: Carlton Reid.

    GUESTS: Laura Laker & Matt Briggs

    SPONSOR: Jenson USA • The Latest Gear. The Best Prices. All In One Place.

    TOPICS: The mainstream media has today fixated on one small part of a Department for Transport press release: the bit about a death-by-dangerous-cycling law. I was on Sky News this morning talking about it and Laura Laker was on BBC. Matt Briggs was on loads of channels. Audio is from the Sky and BBC coverage, and there's also a long-form interview with Matt.

    Episode #197 – "You saved that cyclist's life!"

    The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast

    Episode 197

    "You saved that cyclist's life!"

    Thursday 9th August 2018

    HOST: Carlton Reid.

    GUESTS: Guitar Ted, Jack Stevens, and Ned Boulting.

    SPONSOR: Jenson USA • The Latest Gear. The Best Prices. All In One Place.

    TOPICS:

    Gravel riding in the USA.

    Jack Stevens saved a woman on a bike in London from being crushed under the wheels of a heavy goods vehicle. He filmed the incident, it went viral and then the video was picked up by Metro, a British newspaper which, in a bizarre tweet, blamed the cyclist. Tour de France commentator Ned Boulting called out the Metro newspaper for that duff framing. Also includes the apology from the Metro newspaper's social media manager Jay Jaffa.
