I've decided to make Plastic Weekly my top priority, so I've sorted out some changes to my work life to make more time for it. In a few weeks, I'll be back with better episodes than ever and a consistent focus on bringing you interesting content from the smartest people in the industry. Talk to you soon.
Life is a little busy right now, and unfortunately the pod is taking a hit. Plastic Weekly will be back soon.
The 2017 IFSC Plenary Assembly just wrapped up in Quebec City, and Plastic Weekly was there to ask the big questions. We cover the big 5 topics that matter to Canada and the USA: new elected officials, Olympic formats and qualifications, new events announced, HUGE CHANGES to bouldering, lead, and speed, plus your chance to CHANGE BOULDERING FOREVER!
Clickbait-y enough for you guys?

Canadian National Team Manager Malek Taleb gives a recap of Canadian Open Bouldering Nationals, American Speed Champion John Brosler updates us on the state of speed climbing in the USA, and IFSC Executive Board member Maria Izquierdo gives us a sneak peek into the goings on at this weekend's IFSC Plenary Assembly in Quebec City (spoiler alert: she tells you how you can qualify for the Olympics, probably!)

Plastic Weekly is a real thing! I talk to Chris Neve about being the Head Coach of Canada's Youth Climbing Team, and how he thinks Canada and the USA can work together to create Olympic contenders. Plus I sit down with Liz Maffett, Max Robertson and Nathan Lewis to chat about this week's most talked about issues- including predictions for this weekend's Canadian Open Bouldering Nationals- in a round of 5 On/5 Off.
Special thanks to Mark Brosens: check out his work on The Agenda with Steve Paikin.
