Sir Lüc

Azul all, despite my best efforts at taking ages to edit this together, @Glüc da Dhi S.H. and I are proud to release the first installment of Centraseiră, a podcast dedicated to the Talossan Cycling Association Tour! (Also, we have slides.)

Feel free to skim through the parts you're most interested in: it's all timestamped, and I have inserted an audio cue when changing slides so you don't miss the on-screen explanations.


In this episode:
- Glüc tries to get Lüc to go do live commentary;
- Lüc accuses Giro of traveling through time to steal his Lido time trial idea;
- Glüc mispronounces Italian place names;
- Lüc is accused of being secretly Flemish;
- Glüc forgets that there was in fact no TCAT team named after a dinosaur;
- Lüc will eat a (probably) disgusting pizza if Glüc wins TCAT Giro.

But mostly:
- we present the rules of TCAT and this year's Giro d'Italia;
- we ramble on about cyclists and our 2022 picks;
- we give out free advice about your own TCAT team.

We both hope you enjoy listening/watching, and maybe consider joining TCAT when signups open this week! (it takes five minutes and you don't need to know anything about cycling!)

Yay!  I can't wait to listen to this!  Would it be okay with you if the MinCult promoted this on our social media?

Now that I'm all signed up I'm getting excited...when are the first results due in? I'm guessing May 6th?

The hosts of our game here will be giving us running commentary on how each team does -- it's very exciting!

Yep! Expect the first results to come in after Saturday's inaugural time trial.

We'll also find out what riders each of us picked shortly before the stage begins (I think).

I picked a bunch of people I've never heard of before...but then again I haven't followed this stuff since Lance Armstrong LOL

Guys, by the way, I would be happy to do more logos. They are produced by AI, with some editing afterwards, so it's not a huge deal. If you want me to make one for every event, I am very happy to do so. I'm glad you liked it!

Really fun podcast by the way! You guys are funny.

I use Dall-e and Midjourney, usually. These are from the latter.
