This is not going to be popular but now that it has been brought to my attention and Ive really had some time to think about it I agree. Also as a customer who gives a crap about this company and product I think I need to share my opinion.
I was at my physiotherapist appointment yesterday morning. He is also a cyclist and triathlon coach as well as the person that put me on to trainer road. He mentioned that he was taking a break from the podcasts and I asked why. He mentioned that he was sick of the Nate show. Seems we always here all these stories from Nate about what he is doing. Most I find interesting to be honest and the ones that I don’t I am sure others find interesting. We discussed it a bit more, and then i dismissed it and went home, hopped on the trainer and started listening to podcast 196.
I couldn’t believe it when I heard Nate’s special snowflake comment. I then started thinking about all the questions Nate has asked guests on the show. One podcast that really sticks out was the questions he had for the specialized crew on aerodynamics for himself and HIS position. There are probably not a lot of 6’ 6" riders on a specialized venge with enve wheels and a stem thats xx and size 14 feet with yellow aero socks and… Those seem like really specific snowflake questions! Really not going to help the majority of your users! I do not fit into your body type.
Lately, the podcasts with amber where he’s asking questions about what HE should do with XX and XX. How many people actually eat 5 bowls of sugary cereal in the morning and are trying to ram down x 100 grams of gels per hour on the bike? I mean you have time with these people off the “air”. Maybe you could ask your special snowflake comments outside the podcast and maybe answer a few more user “snowflake” questions?
I like your stories and tips Nate, but your specific questions about you might be better asked to your guests and Coach Chad off the air. But then its your company and your podcast. But if your going to call a snowflake a snowflake then…
Ill keep listening either way but I don’t know if my PT will be back.
