    THE NADIA MOVIE Lies, lies, and more lies! For today's commissioned episode, we watched the 1984 made-for-TV movie Nadia, a Very Highly Extremely Unauthorized biography of Nadia Comaneci, and we seriously just can't with it. We discuss: Things that definitely 100% happened and aren't lies at all, like Bela Karolyi creepily discovering Nadia at recess The villain of this tale: Communism The very important *IMMEDIATE CHOREOGRAPHED FRIENDSHIP DANCE* between Nadia and Teodora Interrupting the judges in the middle of Tourischeva's floor routine (!) Anachronistic hair: A deep discussion Marcia Frederick's stunts are the only watchable part The first double pike beam dismount ever competed? Maria Filatova (USSR) 1977 This movie did Teodora Ungureanu dirty Is this the only gymnastics movie where the stunt work is harder than the real routines they're portraying? Wait...did they turn Nellie Kim white? Creating the future: Did Bela reenact some of these scenes later in his career? Some very sensitive and thoughtful treatment of weight and suicide.

    Nadia and the Secret Police Today, the start of Project K, our dive into the files and transcripts from "Operation Olympia," the Romanian secret police's multi-year surveillance project investigating the Karolyis. We have the first part of Jessica's interview with Dr. Stej Olaru, whose book Nadia and the Secret Police is currently available for pre-order in English. They discuss: What the secret police did and whether their reports can be trusted as reliable primary sources The sheer extent and complexity of the surveillance project of Nadia How many people tried to sound the alarm about the Karolyis in the 1970s Would anything have changed if this had been public knowledge? Plus, transcripts from the actual files about the Karolyis from 1976, detailing physical and verbal abuse, an "atmosphere of terror," and the insistence on ignoring physicians and experts. NCAA Preview To lighten the load, we also talk a little bit about this year's very important and real preseason coaches poll, the finally-announced meet in Las Vegas, and differences in strategy at various preseason meets EXCLUSIVE CLUB CONTENT Club Gym Nerd members can listen to the full interview, uninterrupted, and have access to the original documents discussed in this episode.

    Headlines Riley McCusker posted on Instagram, "At the moment, my voice is being repressed. Don't ever let anyone silence you the way they are trying to silence me." We discuss the cross complaint Maggie Haney has filed against Riley, her parents, Tom Forster and more. US Championships Women Konnor McClain edged Shilese Jones and Jordan Chiles for the national all-around title. How do their scores compare to what's happening around the world? How Jordan Chiles brought NCAA to elite, what was most impressive about McClain's performance, and who was the E-score champion of the meet. Why wasn't Leanne Wong named to national team after co-winning the bars title? We'll tell you—and assess whether it makes sense (it doesn't). How did Jade Carey's performance compare to her Olympic routines, is Kayla DiCello going for worlds, and where might Skye Blakely fit into the national team picture? Plus, who else we enjoyed watching in the senior and junior divisions. In the non-gymnastics department: Who was honored by USAG at the meet, representing a major cultural shift, and which gymnast could Watanabe not stop watching? The USAG logo rebrand. We probably have too many thoughts. US Championships Men What stood out to us in the arena, why this is such an exciting era for the US men, and how the meet format could be improved. Brody Malone and Donnell Whittenburg are automatically qualified to the worlds team. We discuss how they did it, what this means for team selection, and what message this bonus format sends to the rest of the US men. Asher Hong and Fred Richard: The future is bright Why Colt Walker and Yul Moldauer were actually, really on the podium, even though they finished 5th and 6th. Which gymnasts desperately need to bring big gymnastics to the selection camp Men's Euros We talk sustainability and science, and also a little bit of gymnastics. Surprises: Rhys not making the horse final, Srbic not making the high bar final—what world is this? Plus, the virtues of not going out of bounds, the poetic victory for Artem Dolgopyat, the pommel horse bronze medal controversy, why Petrounias can't go to worlds, did someone get Galieva'd on vault, and what angered the German crowd the most.
