    Slide: The Avalanche Podcast

    This is my new thing: https://soundcloud.com/user-660921194

    It's about decision making in avalanche country. You can subscribe to it on iTunes or Android.

    Kinda blows my cover, but whatever. I am a big fan of criticism and feedback, so bring it if you care...

    Just listened to #1 on the drive home for the holiday. Good stuff! I'd kill the background music- both my wife and I found it incredibly distracting. I'd also suggest a slightly shorter target time- as you point out it's easy to let the mind wander while listening to a podcast, and a shorter episode would help with that IMO. Just my $.02, keep up the good work!

    Agreed on removing the background music, but otherwise I found it interesting. Please do talk about your thoughts on airbag packs.

    Thanks for posting this up, listened to the first episode today.

    I'm a big, big fan of walkie talkies, good to mention this! . Pretty crucial for staying in contact with your buddy in trees, at the bottom of a run when hand signals aren't working, and for setting up photos

    Listened to the first two episodes. Really digging it -- hope it keeps coming out for regular listening on the way to-from bc objectives.

    Random thoughts:

    - I too appreciate the toned-down music in the second one.
    - Your humor is on point
    - Sometimes (and this is probably due to material focus on "communication" in first few episodes) it would be nice to have you bring the convo back around to scenarios you're likely to experience. Abstraction is good, but it can bore people quick.
    - It'd be cool to hear:
    some segments on just general BC safety stuff -- not just slides. Tree wells, first aid s. You seem knowledgeable enough.
    interviews with professionals and amateurs

    Thanks for the work. Any other bc-focused podcasts you'd recommend?

    Quoting cause I agree with all these points. I really enjoy your style. Look forward to listening to more

    Glad you took the note on dropping most of the music out of ep 2. Made the drive up I70 go quick last night.

    Awesome! If you've ever met Covert, he's like that in real life. Humble, sarcastic and just the right dude to deliver this message.

    Good luck in whatever you've got going on in Japan.

    Listened to Ep 3 yesterday afternoon. I enjoyed story time, and I'd like more of the same. I think one of the big benefits of the podcast is that it has people thinking about making decisions in avalanche terrain even when they're walking the dog or whatever. I think case studies are really helpful, since I would guess that a lot of your average listeners have at least a basic understanding of the conditions needed for an avalanche. But listening to someone else work through the various pieces of data -- weather, snowpack, terrain, group dynamics -- is helpful because then I can put myself in their shoes and look at whether I'd make the same decisions and why/why not. And if you're with a group that communicates well, you do that in your end-of-day assessment, but a lot of people don't do that as often as they should. So I think a reoccurring case study section would be nice. Personal stories are good, but you could even work through post-avalanche reports that have enough detail regarding conditions, terrain choices etc. to allow for retelling and analysis.

    One other note: I'd advocate losing the long outro music; if I'm listening to podcasts from a playlist it gets a little annoying to wait for the music to end for the next podcast to start.

    Keep up the good work!
