"Well the Olympics and all medals the review years in between them take it was like a thirteen year journey but I tried I. Did the California AIDS ride in Ninety Eight and that was when I really realized Just that there was some marginal talent under underlying there in my body. I mean I didn't I didn't really know know it before I knew I liked doing it and that I thought it'd become a professional at it but I was riding with the front pack on the In by head. Yeah. There was an engine there. There is some there is some you know transfer you know proper high level transfer of oxygen Of NECE and competitive pressure because I was on a mountain bike and I suffered like a dog. Bikes. For people who with a whistle tires not knobby so like all right. There's a big difference in amount bike and rode right especially. One does on AIDS ride around. So wow, and you were the front pack. Okay. For the most part, I mean, sometimes I get dropped but I I was basically kind of hanging with the guys at the front of the end of that that that AIDS ride ahead you make great friends on a journey like that seven days down the coast one, hundred miles a day camping every night and so a couple of stayed great friends after they just really encouraged me to they said, you should just try a race menu. There is some. Talent here this isn't normal what you shouldn't be able to kind of hang with us and and so that's why did. So I signed up for my first race and then I just kept going and and did you do well in your I? Realize? No no, it was horrible. Just absolutely just the most dry. I don't know why it has all the skills needed. Everything was important. Was it was Seattle classic and I did the road race and it. Was pouring down rain and it was freezing and every element. That is who is awful to happen in a bike race was happening during that race all the weather elements, and then the none of us were skilled because like you said, it was a cat five race and so we were all a disaster all over the road it was muddy. I couldn't see I was freezing I was like a dog to even just stay a member finishing the race and. And going back to the van and call my mom and I was like, okay so that I am never doing that again, we've checked that off I never mind on the whole professional cyclist thing 'cause it was just you know but then you know just like are we do you know twenty minutes later I was like where's the next race I got at least make good on this and then I can quit can't quit after that big of Flail 'cause I. Got Like last pretty much. Will you stuck with it which is I think? Just, a trait of yours that has is just so admirable the perseverance that you have the determination and sometime sometime during that training that ended up at the end ended up at the Olympics in two thousand twelve you became Vegan Vegetarian No, no, no, no. Oh typical form you went from probably Vegetarian Vegan pretty fast. Is that yeah, I. mean. Very, for thirty five years I mean just never never stopped for a single second to think about any of it and I had been a racing did my whole entire road career as eating animals and products because I I raced professionally on the road for about ten years before I switched over to track cycling velodrome. Okay. So that whole that whole entire. Time and it's strange because most people I think would think that you at least give some kind of attention to your diet because you're an athlete but I because I had history of eating disorder I was very specific with team nutritious that I would never again way any food measure any food or count calories that everything in the whole wide world nothing was Off The table as far as what I was GonNa, I was to allow myself to eat. So I had this really like super flex chill. You know attitude around food and I didn't want to be regimented with it and I knew that nutrients affected output as an athlete like a kind of got that I knew that that was the case but I was succeeding and so I just ate whatever I wanted to eat kinda win ever I mean we would literally pretty much no thought to it whatsoever until. I did. What what what caused that change? I just had a experience like So many people have had where I was exposed to what basically goes on behind closed doors everyday an animal agriculture the the horror, the cruelty, the terror, the everything that that some of some listeners have seen in some haven't but I was exposed to the. On Video? On it was actually a strange. That I. saw on TV that was in another country and I specifically remember that because it was another language that's how news and at the country but. I Remember Sita and While this is something that I never thought of and and and is crazy that goes on there. But I thought that probably definitely does not go on in the US because I thought of it. As you know, the the government is here to protect the people in that of course, must include our food sources and so none of that must go on behind closed doors in in the united. States. So I I started doing significant amount of a deep dive and research because I thought I'M GONNA prove this wrong i. mean you know that's awful but I don't live wherever that is so and then uncovered what that that it? No. As exactly what goes on here and so I just had a you know. Really. For lack of better words just like a soulful moment where I just looked at that and I looked at myself in the mirror and I said. That's just that's not okay. And so I'm just not going to pay into that system I'm not going to support that like that's now going to no longer be part of what is going to land on my plate because until until that stops, that's not okay. I it. Just you know I guess even imagining that if that weren't weren't to be the case again that maybe I would eat animals again, and of course, I don't feel that now but it was just like that right? They're very specifically. Of how they are breeding raising and chaining up animals to you know I won't go into the details but to just die for food that we don't see boy, we're all sorts of animals. Yeah. There was this was specifically cows and pigs whenever reason of what is also? So did you become get rid of dairy and I'll meet I just took all Animals. Off My plate pretty much overnight. And then. As we all some of us have you just continue.

What Happens to Donated Blood?
"Jerry Lewis v. Wave seditious incur Kobe also Amy wine-house, Johnny cash and more disgrace them rock and roll true crime podcast stories about musicians getting away with murder behaving. Very badly is available now posted by me. Jake Brennan, you can listen to disgrace. Then the I heart radio app apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb. Here. This episode talks about blood donation. So if that's the kind of thing that makes you go on and skip it, okay? Every two seconds in the United States someone somewhere needs a blood transfusion. And let's face it. Money of us. Don't consider giving blood until there's a major disaster where donations are needed. But just one donation has the potential to save up to three lives. On average. When you donate blood, you provide about one pint that's about half liter of whole blood, which is called a unit of blood and for reference that's about sixteen ounces or the size of a large coffee. But in the US alone. There's a need for almost thirty six thousand units of blood every day. So it's excellent for those who can donate to do. So, but have you ever wondered what actually happens after your blood is drawn for donation where does it go, and how is the process tracked for safety and security? We'll break it down step one is collection. When you donate blood. It's collected a special bag, and luckily, if you test tubes that were developed with an antiquated prevent the blood from clotting each bag and test tube is assigned the same unique ID number to ensure that the collected blood can be properly tracked in eventually labeled then the blood is placed on ice before it sent to the lab for testing. Next the bags and test. Tubes of blood are packaged in boxes specially made to keep blood at the right temperature until it can reach laboratories for step to processing the test tube. Samples are sent off to the lab for testing to be sure the blood is safe and to determine the blood type in the US, the FDA regulates blood testing collection and blood components through center for biologics evaluation and research while that blood is being tested, a blood processing center, verifies receipt of the whole blood sort of like tracking package from post office through delivery. The bloods, ideas checked in at every step of the way. Next, the units of whole blood or separated into specific components. The separation process, which is called component therapy is accomplished by spinning the blood and a centrifuge the heavy red cells fall to the bottom and the blood is divided into trance fusible components red cells platelets and plasma the plasma might even be processed further. For instance, plasma can be separated into crow precipitate called crow for short, which helps control the risk of bleeding by helping blood clot. The red blood cells plasma and platelets are then heat sealed in bags to ensure they remain sterile and the components are stored while they wait for their test results plasma in cryan contain proteins that are pretty stable. So they can be frozen for up to a year negative twenty seven degrees Fahrenheit, that's negative thirty three celsius. Red cells are more delicate and have to be refrigerated, but can be kept for up to forty two days as long as they're held at forty two degrees Fahrenheit that six degrees celsius platelets must be used within five days and are stored at room temperature in agitators that rock them back and forth until they're transfused into a patient. Through all of this. The blood processing center is still tracking the donation including manufacturing data. What centrifuge was used to separate the blood? And what time the work was performed once they get an okay on the blood tests from the lab, the components are ready to be deployed they print labels with information, including the blood type and expiration dates, which they then affixed to the bags if the blood is deemed unsafe during the testing, it's tagged with discard labeled complete the tracking cycle when a hospital or treatment center places in order for blood or plasma components are shipped off in temperature safe boxes when they arrived, the medical staff, double checks them for safety. And finally, they're ready to be transfused into the patient who needs them the entire donation to shipping process can take up to three days, which doesn't seem like a long time. In till there's a major disaster or blood shortage. The American Red Cross says blood supply usually keep up with demand because only about three percent of people eligible to donate actually do. That's why it's such a boon to donate if you can especially if you're a universal donor with type O-negative blood. This can be transfused into any patient with any blood type the American Red Cross estimates about forty five percent of people in the US have typo blood. But the overwhelming majority of those people are positive, which is lucky for them because it means that donated components are more likely to match their common type. But it also means that just seven percent of people are type O-negative that universal donor.

"Been getting further apart. So my writing experience as as an enthusiast seems beginning further away from what the pros doing Polly getting further away. So I still do go and ride as or right now, whatever, and I love writing those historic rose, and I go and watch the races and that kind of thing, but the racism cells are doing more and more weird arcane things and becoming time trialists and hidden behind helmets glasses, and it just feels like it's becoming less is more indoor cycling them as well be on track. After time. Because the drama and the adventure just seems to be being squeezed out of it. And that's fundamentally while of the sport is dead venture in the human experience. So the things that are happening at the same time with we're becoming more and more interested in his writers do have the exhibit those kind of quality. So you got things transcontinental, and you've got thirty cancer and grind juror in these events, which are much more about human experience and struggle and spirit, and sort of freer and more more exciting, and they get to the human experience in a way that racing doesn't. And I think that's fundamentally why we're all being drawn to do them one of the aspects cycling as well has started his been it's been very segregated. I mean here in the UK. There was time trialing and racing completely different traditions different governing bodies an in. We talk for indoor cycling track cycling road cycling, not much cross pollination is what you're doing with education. I is clearly bringing a professional world. To racing and racers into that scene is on the way, we need to think about the sport as as a whole rather than in all these pockets. I mean, I met mar boom another day who ten years ago road Ryan the world and met with quest Newtie response to his record real cyclist didn't respect or appreciate it more recently. He did it unsupported as supported as a as a proper race, and it was very different reception to it. People could relate to more unreleased his feet to say Chris military, France a little bit more. As being part of the same thing, which the thing was the case ten years ago is that the futures the we talk a lot, but growing sport cycling is the way we have to do it to to join all together a bit more. I think the sports always been tribal and also being riddled with rules, and you're either inaugur out, and you know, you mustn't do this and you must do that. And that is a problem, and we fought as a brand we have to confront some of those and we still do. So I think you're probably right. We need to do that this all for us. This came out of finishing team sky four year amazing relationship. It was amazing company in and loved it and found it very challenging. But also a good way. It was it brought his on. But when we were looking to renew the contract, we thought well, actually, more of the same isn't going to change anybody's experience at all just big teams racing for small spoils and the fan base declining wasn't very interesting. So now, we need to take time out and just think about this a little bit and figure out how we can help this ball, more popular. And so we did this research project, which which you're familiar with and really in simple terms. What that concluded which is no surprise to anybody is that the only way to tackle this to make. If you made the sport more exciting by creating heroes. You will. Create more fans and you'll make.

"When cheering them. Monthly cycle. Women. Most fertile well most women average twenty eight day cycle. Some ladies have slightly short cycles and some have slightly younger cycles and most ladies of late about halfway through that cycles around about day fourteen so from facility spec, did we would usually recommend regular sexual intercourse from around about day ten because sperm lasts five to seven days an egg baloney last of one to two days maximum, so ladies mainly fertile from probably about day fourteen of their cycle round about day. Twenty one of their cycle is all to do with of elation occurring day fourteen. But what about if a person doesn't have a regular cycle because what the data you've given us a seems persons knows where they are in that cycle. So what happens then so for us? We might recommend that you have some scans can see what's happening to see whether the follicle production is going on within your cycle. Patients can try using Luton ising home sticks. Sixes surge kits. As they're called. You can buy over the counter pay on a stick. And it tells you whether your of your lighting or not ladies, then aren't detecting that they may need some help with something like Plum Athene reproduction of follicle stimulating hormone that usually occurs naturally. But isn't in those languages the chemical process of of Asian, and then obviously we would link gain with scanning. So that we can see that there is a follicle production as well. So what roughly what fraction of people do have a regular cycle. What fraction have irregular cycles sip, ruby one in six ladies have irregular cycles. That's quite a high high proportion Milli. I mean, we keep focusing again here on female factor. But actually forty percent of problems are male factor problems. Forty cent female twenty percent, sometimes it between the unknown. And all say is a mixture of two quite often appears that patients drawn together if both have an info having infertility issue. Well. James, you're gonna say, yeah. I was going to you're talking about of kits. You can buy buy over the counter. Do you put any stock in smartphone apps sort of suggest your facility in the cycle? There's lots out there now which help you track cycle. They would recommend the track your temperature because there's a slight temperature rise when you feel late there is now bit like fit bits and things like that. They're now out there for facility as well. It's a it's a big of up and coming burgeoning market within that side of things as well. And help. They find that useful. Or do you think it just helps Buddha focus their mind they plan in place. And so they tend to stick to it, which means more light successful. And for some patients. It's really helpful. It gives them through focus for others. It just absolutely adds to the stress of the situation, and we would recommend that they go and seek help from a specialist go and see the GP speak to tilting us in those those lots of things out there to help. And actually the apps are useful. But I think sometimes for patients who are really struggling. It's not the best thing really adds to their stress.

"That tradition is very much steeped in what we call the patriarchy, and it's all about the men's side of the sport. So it's been very very slow to accept women. Whereas some sports that are a little bit more. Modern are really connected to the fact that the women are an important part of the equation. So when you take sports within cycling like BMX or cyclocross or even mountain biking. Those are much newer than road cycling and track cycling, which are just steeped in this history of male dominance. So that does show that. Sometimes traditionalism is really part of the problem and the roles of leadership get passed down from Manton, Anton, and they just look at us like, well, this is the way we've always done it. So if we haven't had women part of the equation yet. Then why should we add them? That's usually what we're up against in terms of the traditionalism side. There is that old chestnut that women don't have the same strength for endurance power as men. You to that to that? I say hogwash. But I will say this to we have to look at the physiology part of the equation, right men are often much better sprinters, for example, in the role of endurance. Sports. Women are actually physiologically better suited to endurance. When a race is elongated in terms of distance the gap narrows between men's and women's finishing time. We can see that in marathon running or ultra distance. So this argument really truly is hogwash that manner stronger and better suited toward any possible event. It's not true. Women are amazing contenders. And especially in the realm of endurance sports. How'd you more broadly speaking what other barriers that female footballers face in Pakistan? Is a conservative country. It's an Islamic state and women who play sport ten years from now. We're absolutely looked down upon and now that I've being upon your inbox bucks on I've seen acceptance. But when I got into the sport, I had no idea firstly that football existed because I used to be a track and field athlete. I used to have marathons and stuff when I got in. I realized that women have to go through so much to just be able to play football out in a field. My immediate family supported me throughout my parents siblings. But when my extended family found out did not have good things to say about me. And about the fact that my parents were actually letting me play that stood by our side because you know, I had been athletic ever since growing up. But it went to a point that my extended family did not speak with my parents and my family for like four years because they've thought that the family's name and dignity was going to go down the drain, and it's not how women do it in this family or in this country. It's apps. And now that they see that I've become the captain and I'm playing abroad. And now, they're they're just want to talk highly of me. So that's the starting from homes. That's the first barrier that I had to face that my own extended family had issues, and then when I step out on the field firstly because you have to wear shorts you need to Jesse appropriately for specific sports, but they were girls who would play in pants and trousers and there were very uncomfortable. And because they were men or other girls who would say religion does not allow it are countries, they conservative people would share at you like you're some alien or you know, they would make comments as if they didn't recognize your nationality as there's something difficult. It's suppose there reminded that you're listening to the conversation. And today, we're talking about what can be done to make women's sport more equal to close, not only the wage gap. But also the lack of media coverage. My guess will the footballer has recon and the retired three cyclist, Catherine Bertini. Gene. I'd like to move on and talk about campaigning for change. How both of you complaining for change not Catherine join forces with other persons, Mike Klis big names, and you formed the tool on to campaign for women's version of the tour de France wind us, so before I joined up and formed a group with Emma Pooley and Marianne Vos and Chrissie Wellington for about four years before that I was the one trying to Email the race directors and the UCI to make change happen. And nobody was listening to me. Just one voice out there. I was not a world champion at that time. But when I combined that effort with others, my compatriots had been credible exposure and together, we can drive that change home. So that's what we did informing Latorre auntie to petition for equality at the tour de France. That's when people started listening to us when we were a group. Could you explain to us, Catherine what LaTour on ta is? Yes. So the term is French, and it means the whole tour, and that's when we were lobbying ASO, which is armory sports organization, and they are the directors of the tour de France, the defense, that's one of the most prestigious cycling competitions very we were targeting them. Specifically to finally include women there had been women at the tour de France first of all in the mid fifties. And then again in the eighties from eighty four to eighty nine women did have a three week stage race. Just like the men. So what happened was nine hundred eighty nine the toward France brokered, the TV rights and the TV coverage of the race specifically to the men's field, and they did away with the women's field somebody whether it was history or traditional ISM or one specific person will never know. But somebody basically said, okay, we'll get word of their women's race. So you must have been absolutely delighted when in twenty fourteen women's race was added. But that changed what went Rome. Yes. The conundrum of progress. So we fought very very hard for a three week inclusion. Just like the man we also understood that potentially the first year is three weeks would be very hard on the budget of the women's teams to be able to sustain that. So when we gained access to sit down and talk with them about this. We said what you need to do if you're not going to do three weeks immediately. The first year you have to build incremental stages. Maybe the first year it's three days. Maybe the next year. It's five then seven than ten and fifteen. So you have a plan in progress where every year it's added incrementally until we get to three weeks, and we were thrilled in two thousand fourteen when ASO agreed to one day the women would raise one day on the shelves till he's almost like a starter. And we were thrilled. We had our foot in the door. And when the ratings came in that first day, and I feel so lucky and honored to have been. In part of that race and the ratings were phenomenal. It was broadcast over one hundred and twenty countries on fifty something different networks and the world responded, right, man. We assume that for twenty fifteen they would add more days they re instated the race again as one day. In twenty seventeen and we all crossed our fingers and hope that finally four five six days would be added. No what they did in two thousand seventeen they moved the race from the shops due to a mountain stage. Kevin listening to you talk. I just wonder if it is fair to put the onus on the ASO were putting too much weight on them because they are a private organization. They are they are private organization. There's no reason that they have to do this. But what's interesting is that they're the ones who are ultimately losing out. We can look at any other sport, which does treat men and women equally and the return of investment and the revenue that they draw from equality actually helps that organization thrive. They actually make money when something is equal and right now, they're kind of shooting themselves in the foot. So you're right. It's a private organization. And they can do what they want. They don't have to invite women if they don't want to. But I think for what they stand for in society. They're sending a message further down the line and just cycling by saying. That's enough. That's a token. And I think that sends the wrong message. Right. A hundred you also campaigning for equal treatment and more recognition in your sport. What are you hoping to achieve then planning? This went in March next year. I'm calling it the Iraq the international women's all stars Cup. And the plan is to bring from twenty to twenty five nationalities together football players from different nationalities to come and play an exhibition match advocating for mental health for athletes and gender equality because it's a woman's daughter went and we want to advocate for equality equity and more opportunity because we don't get any. So I hope to make a big change with this event because I just want to prove to everybody that when this. They don't get sponsors is not enough. Opportunity to play. And and tell them that, you know, hey, if we have sponsors, which we do have. So we've got foreign players coming in it kind of. I don't wanna like shame the federation. But I would like to honestly because. I feel like this is this is what's going to make a difference at this stage because I'm twenty four years old. I I've been playing football and boxing for ten years. And I honestly really wanna make a change really deciding some critics I dream big. So this is going to be the biggest women's football exchange ever on a large scale advocating for equality as well if I can jump in. And I completely agree that shame is a very powerful tactic to us when we're talking about equality or creating change and hydra. I really advocate you using that. And if anybody who's watching the sport, and they don't get it. And they don't see how valuable it is to include women equally. Definitely call out the shame on shame on you. That's the plan. Right. And I think it's also very important that we talk about it as I like to use the term benevolent shaming. So we don't come at them with anger, but we come at them with reason, and positively. Hey, don't you get it? Shame on you. If you can't see that this is actually going to be beneficial for you. That's what I'm trying to do. I mean, I'm just trying to prove to them that if you're determined enough to do something make a difference and make a change or stand up for your gender or sex. You can and I hope that I continue this dialogue and Guthrie by the way buttocks. Shoot me an Email, and we gotta get in touch. Yes. Absolutely sister. I know that we both agree on this that this really isn't about football or cycling. It's much bigger. Yes. This is about moving women forward. And those just happened to be our mediums of change. It's not about sport at all. It's about moving our whole society forward. So tell me about the home stretch foundation, Catherine and how it helps female cyclists when I was a pro cyclist the five years that I raised professionally only one of those years was I paid above the poverty line. So it was always a struggle which meant I had to work a million other part time jobs to just get by. So when I retired. I said look this needs to change until there's a base salary for women. We need to help out the women who are at the top of the sport. But yet they're still struggling because they're not being paid properly. So we founded the homestretch foundation, which is based in Tucson, Arizona. It's an area where many cyclists come in the winter to train. So we accept eight athletes who. Can stay at the house, and they don't have to pay any rent? They don't have to pay utilities all they have to do is cover their own food and everything else has taken care of. So they can stay and train their or use it as a Homebase when they travel back and forth to racist and to date, we have helped thirty seven athletes from ten different countries. And of course, behind the scenes, we lobby for change. So we don't want to be a band aid. We would actually like to not exist Sunday. And we're also excited to see that the salary equity will happen in twenty twenty. So there won't be as many cyclists that need this type of crutch to to get by now when you look Katherine to other sports that have created a more equal playing field. I'm thinking of tennis, for example. Oh, you encouraged that is plausible for things to change or you up to mystic. Yes. I am. I'm very optimistic and I have to remain. So otherwise, it would just be a really sad endeavor. So I always cling to the hope that change is possible. Because we've seen that we've seen it. In tennis. We've seen it in newer sports. Like I mentioned before whether it's mountain biking or triathlon. Where men and women race the same distances, the same course the same prize money. So it does give me hope that cycling can get there. And I'm also thrilled to see how many members of the media are starting to ask those questions like why isn't it equal?
