...make the kayak erg better. I like podcasts and never have enough time to listen so that makes it easier to convince myself to use the erg.
Good idea! That beats the cheesy Apple Music pop station I listened to.
TA1 is good for getting into an AR frame of mind. This American Life can be good in a different way. For the kayak erg, I can't listen to something like comedy or music. There has to be a story or interview that makes me want to listen (and paddle) all the way to the end.
I watched a lot of old EcoChallenge videos on YouTube when I was training on the kayak erg for Wilderness Traverse, they made it a lot more enjoyable for me.
