Keyboard Kimura Podcast: A Rant from the Heart

We started out heading one way and landed somewhere else, but everything I say today comes from the heart, and I hope you can appreciate that

Episode details

Today’s podcast turned into a bit of a therapy session, but I hope you’ll understand why I felt necessary for me and that everything comes from a good place. I know there are parts where I sound egotistical and elitist, and there will be arguments I make that you disagree with, but I care about this sport and its athletes so deeply, and want the way they’re covered to be better, and when it’s not, things like this bubble up inside of me.

And today I let it out.

I really want to hear from you all on this one — either in the comments, on Twitter, or via email if you have it.

I was pumped to see Jiri Prochazka have his amazing moment at home in Brno — and I love the picture from his tweet above — and it triggered my frustration over the dismissive comments and mindset that followed the announcement of Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot headlining next weekend’s show, and we were off to the races.

This sport and its people are my passion, my favourite hobby, and what I dedicate large portions of my day-to-day life towards chronicling, and not only do I want to do it as best as I possibly can, but I want to be surrounded by others that feel the same way.

That’s what this podcast is all about.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
