Prefer to listen to your bike content? Want to hang out with like-minded bike geeks for an hour at a time? We’ve got you covered. 

Escape Collective is launching with four podcasts: 

The Placeholders continues on from pre-Escape days (we were going to change the name, but it’s taken on a life of its own at this point). This weekly podcast will drop every Wednesday and cover the biggest stories in cycling, from the Tour de France to the Tour Divide, with plenty of tangents in between.

Listen on: iTunes | Spotify

Pretty Serious Bike Racing Podcast does what it says on the tin. Dane Cash and Cosmo Catalano host this weekly racing analysis pod, dropping every Monday. They’ll have pro guests like Ruth Winder and will often pull in Escape’s former racers, Ronan Mc Laughlin and Abby Mickey. 

Listen on: iTunes | Spotify

Wheel Talk is a podcast dedicated to the comings and goings of the women’s pro peloton, hosted by former pros Abby Mickey, Loren Rowney, and Gracie Elvin. You won’t find a deeper, more-informed look at women’s racing anywhere. 

Listen on: iTunes | Spotify

Geek Warning is a homage to the nerdiest among us, hosted by the deeply geeky Dave Rome, Ronan Mc Laughlin, James Huang, and Caley Fretz. This pod hits on the latest tech news, industry trends, and more. 

Listen on: iTunes | Spotify

A quick note on listening logistics. You’ll find each of our podcasts on its own dedicated channel, but there will also be one big Escape Collective channel where you can find every single pod we produce. This is the old Placeholder channel. If you’re already subscribed to that, you’ll get everything in one place.

You can subscribe to the Escape Collective uber channel on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, or wherever you listen to podcasts. The cover art looks like this:
