JVN [00:00:00] Welcome to Getting Curious. I’m Jonathan Van Ness, and every week I sit down for a 40-minute conversation with a brilliant expert to learn all about something that makes me curious. On today’s episode, I’m joined by six-time Olympic medalist and captain of the Fierce Five and Final Five gymnastics teams Aly Raisman, where I ask her: Am I Your Favorite Non-Binary Gardener Slash Gymnast?! So if you are driving a-, you know where I’m from they call it vehicles, vehicles. So if you’re in a moving vehicle, I need you to strap yourself in and don’t freak out and don’t veer off course because we have like literally one of the most prolific guests of “Getting Curious” history ever of all time. And I’m freaking out. So put your hands together and make so much noise for Aly Raisman.  ALY RAISMAN [00:00:48] Hi! That was the best introduction I ever got in my whole life.  JVN [00:00:51] No.  ALY RAISMAN [00:00:52] Hi. How are you?
