Journalist, writer, unintended comic, Jason Gay is a sports columnist and editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal. You don't crack into the WSJ and expect a chuckle unless you're reading something penned by Jason. Ted visited the Big Apple and the two of them sat down in an actual sound studio for the most crisp and lively of podcasts covering topics on two wheels and many more outside of cycling.
