Show Notes

Live from the echo chamber, Nick and Jon are back and woker than ever. This week we refine our sales pitch which can now be delivered by bike. We go deep on follow up, set some challenging goals, and go back to the drawing board on fitness watches. Nick has ordered new headphones, Jon just needs to try harder, and we wait for our advertising plans to go “woooosh” and _literally_ let all the air in. ## Show notes * Graeme Le Saux was often cast as an outsider within football for his _Guardian_[reading sensibilities and "sensitive" nature](https://www.theguardian.com/football/1999/may/15/newsstory.sport10). Here he is [discussing banter and changing room culture](https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/oct/12/footballer-banter-donald-trump-locker-room-insults). * We could be the [St Pauli](http://edition.cnn.com/2010/SPORT/football/08/18/football.st.pauli.punks/index.html) of village cricket * Nick [should have gone and got a Grey Nicholls bat](http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/cricket/8550680/A-boyhood-dream-my-own-bespoke-bat.html) * [The Tag smart watch can be traded for a proper one after 3 years](http://www.t3.com/reviews/tag-heuer-connected-watch-the-best-android-wear-watch-ever ) * [How to read and understand vo2 max](https://www.wareable.com/health-and-wellbeing/vo2-max-guide-understand-and-increase-789) * A quick tour of [Garmin's stats dashboard](http://runreporter.com/running-gear-reviews/garmin/garmin-connect-review/).

I've never had a slidey experience

Like when Doctor Who stops being a series and instead throws out occasional seasonal specials, we are back—back to discuss routers, the kids' Kindle Fire, and extreme sports pedagogy. Nick's hills are not alive with the sound of music, Jon's phone is absolutely terrible, and we fail to talk about running at all. Merry Christmas ya filthy animals! ...
