The only ROWING podcast
I"m the host and obviously I love it. It was my idea to get rowers and coaches on the air to answer listeners' questions. We get great insights into how different people row and coach and approach overcoming problems. RowingChat unites us in our passion for rowing around the English-speaking world.
