Personally, I love the relaxed and casual feeling of Lary's walks. Even if the information is a little slower in coming, it adds a personal touch to it, so it's not like we're listening to a tutorial. Not that I don't like tutorials, it's just that I do enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Besides, we all should slow down once in a while. LOL!
I also find that listening to the environment as he walks along, and his easy way of keeping up a conversation, which he does very well at I might add, just makes the podcast more enjoyable.
So here's to you, Lary and Jake, and your walks!

Subject: [bct] Larry's walk home
Larry said that a few listeners have complained that his walks are kind of
long and rambling.
I personally find them really fun to listen to when I walk with my dog or work out on a treadmill. I find if I'm just sitting I can feel impatient that the information delivery is slow, but that's my problem. We all get used to listening to fast speech because, in the real world, we gotta get things done.
Larry helps me pick up the pace when I'm walking. I find with the treadmill
especially I can tune in to his environment because I don't have to listen
for traffic or pay attention to where I am. I tried listening to workout
music but it isn't very relaxing. Exercise should calm you as well as
Larry's walks are kind of like yoga for your mind. My only complaint is that
I wish he'd take us out on country roads more!
