Late last night, Tom and I put the finishing touches on everything we needed to have done for an official launch of ClimbSci, our new webcast about all topics climbing and science. In the first episode, we talk about protein, including digestion, metabolism, amino acids (such as BCAAs), signalling, and requirements, and also answer a few questions.
As a warning, our first episode is long—an hour and forty eight minutes long, to be exact. We fully intended to keep it under an hour, but Tom and I are webcast novices and we bit off more than we could easily chew in an hour. The good news is that it’s not just two hours of rambling! We do pace ourselves relatively well, I think. But, we also intend to bite off smaller pieces in the future so you don’t have to commit almost two hours of your day to us.
Without further ado, here is the episode:
Official ClimbSci Site
Since ClimbSci is a collaboration between Tom Herbert (usefulcoach) and myself, we’ve also created an official ClimbSci website where everything related to the podcast will be organized. I will continue to post new episodes of the cast here, as well, but the official site will have a bit of information about the episode that I will most likely not include here, including a quick navigation menu of timecodes (in case you are looking for a specific piece of information), our bibliography, further reading, and answers to the questions we didn’t get around to during the episode proper. Please check it out!
As our first foray into webcast territory, Tom and I are eager to know what you think! I already mentioned that the episode was long, but if you felt differently we’d love to know. In fact, we’d love to know your thoughts in general, so if you have a comment about what you liked or what you think we could do better or differently, please tell us in the comments below!
