Tom and I are making progress towards getting the webcast/podcast all set up and ready. We’ve decided upon a name, a general format for each show, a topic for the first show (protein, because it continues to be one of the most asked-about topics), and set up the necessary accounts.
We’ve also decided upon a theme for the show: science-based climbing information. While nutrition will certainly play a large role in the show (probably the largest role, given our backgrounds), we didn’t want to limit ourselves to just nutrition, and so we will also be covering topics like training and research and recruiting guests who know more about these topics than we do.
What remains to be done now is a mixture of preparation and random “administrative tasks”, for lack of better term. The administrative tasks I intend to complete this week, the preparation is ongoing. I hope we’ll be able to at least announce the date of the first episode next week!
In the meantime, I have a task for you:
In each episode, Tom and I are planning to take a bit of time to answer questions, and we need you to supply us with some. Ideally, these questions should be related to the topic (protein), but really any climbing-related topic dealing with nutrition or other sciences is okay. We’ll pick a few to answer on the air and answer the rest personally.
To ask a question, please navigate to the “Ask a Question” page and fill out the contact box at the bottom. I know, it’s more annoying than just sending an email, but it also prevents me from getting a crippling amount of spam and ensures that all questions actually make it to me!
As many of you know, I already answer questions personally via email and occasionally here on this site—this is not going to change. I’m merely adding a new way that questions may be answered, particularly questions that are specifically related to climbing rather than broadly nutrition.
Thanks, and look for more updates next week!
