This evening we're joined by members (JD Thornburg, Hunter Huss, Tommy Snodgrass and crew chief Terry Lansdell) of the Concord, NC based 8 person relay Team FOG!
FOG Racing of Concord, NC competed in the 2014 Race Across America (RAAM) to raise money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Known as the “world’s toughest bicycle race,” RAAM will set more than 250 competitors on a 3,000-mile route stretching from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast. Team FOG will compete as an eight man team and race continuously day and night, on their own power expecting to complete the journey in roughly six days.
RAAM is the ultimate test of strength and determination. But every day, Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte helps children heal faster because they’re surrounded by their families. The goal of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to improve the health and well-being of nearly 3.7 million children worldwide every year – and it has indeed made a global impact. And while its approach is to think globally, RMHC acts locally by tailoring programs and services that address the most urgent needs of each community it serves. With a network of local chapters, like the one here in Charlotte, its core programs can be found in 52 countries and regions around the globe.
FOG Racing is a group of avid cyclists who believe strongly in the Ronald McDonald House mission. These courageous adventurers will brave heat, wind, thunderstorms, altitude, the dark of night, fatigue and sleep deprivation, and cross several major mountain ranges to raise awareness and money in support of this mission.

Dennis Johnson joins us to discuss his experiences during the 2014 Race Across America. Dennis turned in an incredible performance finishing 7th overall, top US solo finisher, first 60+ solo finisher, fastest crossing by an age 60+ racer, new recumbent record. This podcast is not going to be a discussion of the science/organization/etc of Johnson's race - in Dennis' words "...this race was a story about the struggle to win, the battles to defeat the bastard (the force trying to give me from finishing), the effects of sleep deprivation and injury that almost cost me the race in the last 30 hours, a 12-hour sprint to the finish, and the support of a team that became a family. All too often RAAM seems to become a story about an epic journey of self-discovery; this is a story about an epic race seen through the mind of the racer."
You've heard of things that go bump in the night. What about things that go bump in the light? Tonight we discuss mysterious sounds from all around the world. Is it alien in nature? Maybe biological? Angels with harps? Or a perfectly rational scientific explanation. We will discuss the posibilities.
