  • brought to you in association with Indoor Wingsuit.com, the tunnel in Stockholm that super charges your wingsuit skills and even allows muggles to experience wingsuit flight. 
  • brought to you in association with FlySight the GPS unit designed from the ground up for the skydiver. 
  • No Thought for the Podcast (although we all thought long and hard about when to record)
  • No experts (apart from the hosts of course!)
  • No book club (except Craig is letting down the side and has started to read Type T)
  • No back cover photo (we’ve been off air long enough, how come our inbox isn’t overflowing???)
  • Rai talks about what being on a 4-way team makes her a better risk manager at a bank (a risk manager who jumps out of planes???)
  • Tash talks about being is allowed to jump both her canopies in France (is she just not taking enough risks in her canopy choices?)
  • Brexit (we couldn’t help ourselves)
  • WORLD CUP (the important 4FS one we don’t care about WS or CF which happened already, also AE happening during the recording or CP to come)
  • SDC Rythm XP peaked at US Nationals, their domestic competition at the World Cup
  • Rai should go to more Comps Cttee meetings (but spends too much time in windy tubes to make it to Leicester)
  • Craig and Tash tell everything that can be told about mediations and resignations 
  • Tash explains the process the BPA Competitions Committee has for athlete sponsorship (it was better than what was there before and can still be improved, we don’t want to tinker with it too often!)
  • Peterlee has new owners (does everyone know who it is? We don’t say in case they don’t)
  • Craig gives Rai accent training to sound more like she’s from the North (east not west)
  • Knocked out wingsuiter AAD fire video (watch this is you want to get dizzy)
  • Do you want to be part of the 5 year plan that is 'Brit200'? (Brian does)
  • Airproxes at Chatteris and Sibson (hopefully some video is sold to the press so we can all see it!)
  • Skydive London closed forever ( :-( )
  • Bedford offline for months (we couldn’t find the transformers music sorry!)
  • Revenge to be moved, not sure when to
  • Sequential games going for a total break world record AND 121-way jewel (and post recording got the record and built the jewel while I’m writing the show notes)
  • Jenn Davidson’s husband Matt has a podcast - “talk with high performers to learn more about the habits and rituals which have empowered them to consistently achieve victory in their champion’s journey” achampionsjourney.com
  • http://skyhooked.dk danish podcast (talk about us but we don’t know whether it’s good or bad)
  • Another bigway we aren’t taking part in (because we aren’t Australian enough)
  • Project 19 (to happen in 2020, Rai explains why it’s called 19 anyway)
  • UK nationals (we treat them all equally this time)
  • Life as a Pro- bunch of cool skydiving pros talking about their lives as skydivers at Tora tora (only cool freeflyers got to know about it in advance, the rest heard about it when they saw the fb posts)
  • Front cover of Ollie Ellis and Ben Reed-Smith by Jakub Aungiers
  • Tash learnt how to read FlySight data from Speed competitors (but hasn’t actually flown it yet)
  • Despite not flying her FlySight, Tash has the dubious honour of showing up as the slowest ever Speed skydiver on the paralog database
  • Craig’s logging example is finally being followed by Tash (but more because she now has a German parachutist license)
  • Rai goes to the boogieman party (Fabian may be the best party organiser around)
  • Judging is never easy (but easier than going to Comps meetings apparently)
  • Our mentors sent in some advice (which wasn’t taken after all)
