 Did laugh at his comment about being used to miserable conditions in the cold for a week at a time with cold feet and hands. Finally there is an advantage to that suffering.

 The year of the Rat was 2014... not 2016. That was one of the Gwinner's years

 Always a little hesitant on new podcasts since there are so many people trying to do them now, but Reece is super well spoken and easy/fun to listen to in this format so I knew i was gonna give it a try.
Duncan's got good energy as a host too, great listen!

 Reece is one of the most well spoken and analytical guys in the game, love listening to how he breaks down the sport. He was talking about future careers - with an analytical mind like that he would make an amazing presenter for the RedBull live feed!
