Hello and welcome to number 71! This week I am joined by actress Juliana Dever as we discuss her award winning travel blog CleverDever Wherever, her current immersive cultural tours of Eastern Europe helping local women and of course her acting past which included the hit series Castle. We delve into the psyche of the traveler and why people like us can not stay still long and have a need to seek new experiences, places and people. Juliana tells us about having the need to travel from a young age growing up in Missouri and how her first job as a flight attendant offered a way out and more importantly, a way to travel. We cover so many cool subjects within travel and it was really fun to speak to Juliana. If you are reading this, be sure to send her some goat pictures on social media, she loves goats!

To many cycling viewers, the rise of Primož Roglič and Tadej Pogačar may feel like it came out of nowhere. Longer-term cycling fans might remember the years of Tadej Valjavec and Jani Brajkovič as the first time Slovenia registered for them on the world stage of cycling. But the reality is, Slovenian cycling has been around for a long time, as long as cycling itself. In this first part of a two-part series for The Cycling Podcast, Kate Wagner shares her travels to Slovenia where she tracked down recent stars like Matej Mohorič, Primož Roglič, and Jani Brajkovič, long-retired ex-riders you may have never heard of such as Cantino Tollo rider Martin Hvrastija; historians, journalists and more to find the answers to the question we're all asking: how did Slovenia get to the highest echelon of professional cycling? In addition, Wagner mixes this account with history, culture, travel writing, and literature in order to paint a rich picture of Slovenia, her second home.

Andrea Mustoni"Un uomo tra gli orsi"Il racconto di un'avventura sulle Alpiediciclo editorehttps://www.ediciclo.it/Un uomo tra gli orsi racconta il progetto di reintroduzione dell'orso sulle Alpi realizzato in Trentino tra il 1996 e il 2004. Ad accompagnarci in questo viaggio accanto al grande mammifero è Andrea Mustoni, lo zoologo coordinatore del progetto che ha vissuto in prima persona tutte le sue fasi, dalle catture degli esemplari nei boschi della Slovenia, ﬁno al monitoraggio della popolazione che si è andata a consolidare nei luoghi dei rilasci. La narrazione degli eventi è arricchita da numerose pagine del diario scritto all'epoca dall'autore, dove emergono sia considerazioni pratiche, sia le emozioni di una vita vissuta vicino all'orso, il più grande mammifero selvatico delle Alpi. Un viaggio nella natura, a tu per tu con il selvatico che è fuori e dentro di noi. Con i disegni di Massimo VettorazziPrefazione di Marco ApollonioIntroduzione di Rosario FicheraAndrea Mustoni è nato a Milano dove nel 1991 si è laureato in Biologia presso l'Università degli Studi. Da allora ha lavorato come zoologo libero professionista, occupandosi principalmente di ricerca scientifica e di progetti di reintroduzione di grandi mammiferi alpini. È stato coordinatore tecnico del progetto Life Ursus, gestendo in prima persona anche le catture e il monitoraggio degli orsi immessi in Trentino. Oggi lavora presso il Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta occupandosi di conservazione della fauna.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEascoltare fa pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

At the age of 12, Matija Goljar attempted to break a world-record and in the process discovered his unique ability to take risks and come out of the other side unscathed. After running an illegal underground gambling tournament and destroying the servers of the biggest Slovenian newspaper company with another one of his ventures- Matija quickly learnt how to fail fast and forward. He went on to build the largest entrepreneurship support network for young founders in Slovenia known as 'Ustvarjalnik' and has trained over 10,000- entrepreneurs from all over the world. Today, as he travels across Europe in his caravan scouting for new companies worth investing in, he takes us through his early life as an entrepreneur in a struggling Slovenian ecosystem, the challenges of working through the criticism he faced for being an entrepreneur and some hard lessons he had to learn in the process of becoming the unapologetic and unconventional leader that he is now.

In mid-May, I traveled from London to Slovenia to interview the Ukrainian men's soccer team on their bid to reach November's Qatar World Cup. It was a four-day assignment, requiring travel via train stations, airports, and taxi ranks—but at no point was I asked to show a negative COVID-19 test, my vaccination status, nor even to wear a facemask. I can barely recall seeing anyone wear one, least of all the elite sportsmen with whom I mingled daily.

Tucked into a remote gorge in western Slovenia, a secret medical facility (Franja Partisan Hospital) housed an extensive staff that tended to thousands of wounded soldiers during World War II—all the while staying hidden from the Nazis. Though avoiding detection from numerous Nazi attempts to locate the facility is in itself a remarkable feat, even more remarkable is that the hospital (founded and run by the Slovenia resistance movement) cared for soldiers from both the Allied and Axis armies. The hospital welcomed everyone. Scripture calls us to help the whole world to be spiritually healed. This means we need to have compassion for all—regardless of their views. Everyone, no matter their ideology, deserves Christ’s love and kindness. Paul insists that Jesus’ all-embracing love “compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all” (2 Corinthians 5:14). All of us suffer the sickness of sin. All of us are in desperate need of the healing of Jesus’ forgiveness. And He’s moved toward all of us in order to heal us. Then, in a surprising move, God entrusted us with “the message of reconciliation” (v. 19). God invites us to tend to wounded and broken people (like us). We participate in healing work where the sick are made healthy through union with Him. And this reconciliation, this healing, is for all who will receive it.
First up, we're sharing a blast from the past blast from the past, an interview that we conducted in 2013 via our comrades from A-Radio Berlin with a participant in the autonomous anti-capitalist street movement in Germany in the latter half of the 20th century known as Autonomen.

To improve our endurance, we want to be more efficient at an aerobic intensity. To improve our speed, we want to have a higher anaerobic capacity. Besides doing "field testing" like the Swim CSS, Bike FTP and Run TT, one scientific way to test is how well the body processes muscle lactate. If you've ever done a Lactate Threshold Test (LTT), here's how the test administrator interprets the lactate measurement to determine your training zones. The LTT is performed by starting the athlete a warmup at a very easy intensity. We'll use the run discipline for this example. The athlete will walk on a treadmill for 10 minutes before starting the test and once the test starts, the intensity is increased every 2 minutes. At the beginning of the 10 minutes, the test administrator takes 4 metrics - pace, rate of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR) and lactate millimoles per liter of blood with a blood sample and lab kit. The lactate compared to the pace is the primary metric and the HR and RPE are secondary but useful to confirm and interpret the data. The administrator takes those same 4 metrics at the end of the 10 minutes and every 2 minutes there after. Every 2 minutes the treadmill pace is increased by 30 seconds of pace (11:00, 10:30, 10:00, 9:30 and so on). There are two key inflection points the test administrator is looking for. When the intensity is increased and the lactate level remains the same as the previous level means that the subject athlete is predominantly aerobic (zones 1-2). When the lactate level increases and levels out after each increase the athlete is in between aerobic and anaerobic (zone 3). When the lactate level continues to rise without an increase to intensity, the athlete is above lactate threshold (zone 4-5). Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

New Garmin Varia RCT715 tail light has a camera to record your crashes The Varia's high-definition camera will record everything behind you and its radar will alert you to approaching vehicles. Garmin has released the Varia RCT715, a new version of its tail light that features a high-definition camera to record any incidents out on the road. The Varia RCT715 features the same radar technology as its predecessors. When paired with a Garmin bike computer or smartwatch, the Varia will alert users to vehicles approaching from behind up to 140m away. Garmin says the device can be paired with selected cycling apps such as Ride with GPS. This will enable users to overlay maps with the radar notifications. Garmin claims the Varia RCT715's tail light can be seen up to one mile away in daylight. The camera records continuously and will save footage if an incident is detected. Garmin says the Varia's camera will “capture sharp, clear footage” at up 1080 pixels and 30 frames per second. The camera will record constantly when the Varia is in use. If an incident is detected, via Garmin's Incident Detection feature, the camera will automatically save footage from before, during and after the event. According to Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of global consumer sales, this is to provide users with evidence of an incident “should they ever need it”. However, the camera also provides more recreational functions, in line with how you might use a GoPro. Via the Garmin Varia app, users can access the video footage, transfer files and customise the camera's settings, to do things such as overlay data, including speed and location. Garmin says the use of the camera will be prohibited or regulated in some jurisdictions, adding that it is the responsibility of the user to know and comply with applicable laws and rights to privacy. While Garmin has added a camera to the Varia, it has retained the radar and tail light functionality of the device. Like the previous Garmin Varia RTL515, the radar on the new version will still detect and alert users to vehicles approaching from behind to the same distance of 140m. Similarly, the tail light on the new version is said to be visible up to one mile away in daylight, which is the same as the Varia RTL515. But while the RTL515 has a claimed battery life of up to 16 hours, the RCT715 has a shorter claimed battery life. The Varia RCT715's battery life is said to be up to four hours with radar and the tail light on ‘solid high' or ‘night flash', and up to six hours with the light flashing. The reduction in battery life is presumably because the camera is recording continuously. Why Running at Night Feels Harder An interesting new study by researchers at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology, working with the Swedish military and colleagues in Slovenia. They'd noticed that soldiers on night marches seemed to burn more energy than would be expected from the physical demands of the mission, especially when wearing night-vision goggles that restrict peripheral vision. They wondered whether not being able to see forced the soldiers to alter their strides, sacrificing efficiency for stability, so they decided to test this theory. The new study, published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, had 15 volunteers do a series of ten-minute treadmill walks in four conditions: with and without a 56-pound pack, and with and without a blindfold on. The treadmill was set at a comfortable pace of around 30 minutes per mile, with a laser warning system to alert them if they were about to fall off the back of the treadmill. The results showed that oxygen use (a proxy for energy consumption), breathing, and heart rate all increased substantially when wearing the heavy pack, as you'd expect. The surprise was that they increased by nearly the same amount when adding a blindfold. Here are the graphs of those three parameters, with (circles) or without (squares) the blindfold: If you compare the circles on the left (i.e. blindfolded with no backpack) to the squares on the right (i.e. not blindfolded with a backpack), you see they're almost the same. In other words, walking with a blindfold takes as much extra effort as walking with a 56-pound pack. To be precise, the backpack increased oxygen consumption by 20 percent, while blindfolding increased oxygen consumption 19 percent. The explanation for this effect seems to be that the subjects adjusted their strides when blindfolded: their steps got 11 percent shorter and 6 percent wider, and they also lifted their feet 18 percent higher. Bear in mind that this is on a perfectly flat treadmill, so there are no bumps or potholes to avoid: this is just an instinctive response. It's also worth noting that the effect probably isn't just because they're unfamiliar with the challenge of walking while blindfolded: a similar test of blind subjects found that they burned about 25 percent more energy while walking than sighted controls. Of course, being blindfolded is significantly more disruptive than wearing night goggles, or simply being out at night in poorly lit conditions. That means the size of the effect is probably exaggerated. And walking is different from running. But it seems reasonable to assume that similar mechanisms are at work when you're running in the dark—along with other, more subtle mechanisms like optic flow, which is the pattern of objects flowing through your vision as you move through space. When you're running or cycling in the dark, you can only see objects that are relatively close to you. That means that they appear in your field of vision only briefly before disappearing behind you, which corresponds to faster optic flow than you'd experience in daylight. A few previous studies, most notably those by Dave Parry and Dominic Micklewright of the University of Essex, have tried manipulating optic flow in virtual reality setups, making the scenery fly past more quickly or slowly than the speed of the treadmill or exercise bike. Sure enough, when optic flow is faster—as you'd experience in dark conditions—you feel like you're moving faster, and any given pace feels harder. There's an interesting corollary to these findings about optic flow, as Parry explained to Runner's World's Scott Douglas back in 2012. “Running in an environment where most of the visual reference points you can see are close by, you experience a greater sensation of speed than when in an environment where your reference points are far away,” he said. That means running through a forest or through city streets will likely feel faster than running across an open field. Ever since reading about those optical flow results, I've dismissed the gap between my actual and perceived pace during night runs as a quirk of how my brain estimates effort. During most of my runs, that gap doesn't matter—but if I'm trying to do a tempo run or hard workout before sunrise, the slower pace can be a bummer. So I'll take the new Swedish results as reassurance that night running might really be physiologically harder, not just a brain error—and if that's what it takes to avoid tripping in the dark, I'll accept the trade-off.

The penultimate mountain stage of the 2022 Giro d'Italia took the race into Slovenia, with the battle for the maglia rosa still delicately poised. Could Richard Carapaz consolidate his advantage - or might Mikel Landa and Jai Hindley attempt to finally break the deadlock that has turned this into one of the closest, most uncertain Giri in recent memory? Breakaways have been consistently rewarded in recent days, and so it would prove again with Koen Bouwman taking his second stage win of the Giro. Meanwhile, despite numerous attempts from all three in the finale, Carapaz, Hindley and Landa still couldn't be separated. In tonight's episode, we discuss all the day's action, welcome BikeExchange-Jayco directeur sportif Matt White for a drive-by cameo, and look ahead to tomorrow's Dolomite blockbuster with some of the riders who'll have to scale the San Pellegrino and Fedaia passes in just a few hours.
