We tackle the decathalon of emotions that was Bruce Jenner’s heroic 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer. Jane Yee and Alex Casey are joined by Kardashian fanatic Sacha Moore to chat about Bruce’s revelatory announcement that the gold medal-winning athlete is transitioning into a woman at the age of 65. We discuss his ripped athletic history, time as a sweatsuit-wearing punching bag on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and reflect upon the neggy wisdom of Kanye as Bruce steps up to his biggest challenge yet.
Note: From now on we will publish occasional one-off podcasts covering particular one-off television events like this, in addition to all our other regular reality TV pods like ‘After the Factor’ and ‘The Fantasy Suite’. These will all be gathered in one stream under the name ‘The Spinoff Podcasts’. These exist under what was formerly ‘The Fantasy Suite’, so if you’re subscribed to that on iTunes you needn’t do a thing. If not – iPhone users click here to see the showpage and subscribe on iTunes or Android users should head here to subscribe via Stitcher.
The Spinoff Weekly compiles the best stories of the week – an essential guide to modern life in New Zealand, emailed out on Monday evenings.
