013 | Landing
Docking is a fear-inducing process for many coxswains, including us! As Chuck Yeager (renowned pilot) said: “If you can walk away from a landing, it’s a good landing. If you use the airplane the next day, it’s an outstanding landing.” We share information about the many details that can affect how we land: wind, current, rowers, etc. Connect with us on our website at https://www.CoxPod.com, on our Slack channel, or on social media.

012 | Wet Launching & Landing
No dock? No problem! In this episode we discuss the unique considerations that apply when launching and landing without a dock. While beach/wet launching can present challenges, it also comes with benefits. We hope you’ll find this episode particularly beneficial if wet launching isn’t your typical experience.

011 | Launching
Everyone talks about landing/docking, but coxswains rarely get guidance on launching. We discuss how to safely get a boat from the rack to the dock, including: how to deal with rowers of varying heights and physical abilities, where should you be positioned as a coxswain during the launching process, what to do at venues with very long walks to the launching area, and how to do a standing shove!

010 | Practice Management
We walk through a water practice from start to finish, drawing back the sometimes-opaque curtain and discussing how even a perceived simple act like “get to the dock” is more nuanced and complex than people appreciate.

009 | Interview with Deirdre McLoughlin - physical therapist
When you look at a rowing shell, coxswains appear to be sitting motionless, not contributing to the movement of the boat. But anyone who’s been in the seat knows that what we do is physically demanding as well. In this episode, we hear the perspective of a physical therapist (who is also a rower and coach) on the athletic aspects of the coxswain seat.

008 | Receiving Feedback
The common perception is that coxswains give feedback, but the other side of that coin is just as important. Coxswains aren’t only sources of output. To excel, we have to be receptive to input. In this episode, we talk about how to receive and integrate feedback from coaches, rowers, and race officials.

007 | Giving Feedback
How can we wield our words most effectively? Like James Bond (the original 007), a laconic man known for pithy phrases, a great coxswain can learn to use words like Q’s sophisticated gadgets. We also talk about how you can leverage your feedback to support the team’s goals. Connect with us on our website at https://www.CoxPod.com, on our Slack channel, or on social media. Support us!

006 | Bowloaders: Communication & Technique
If your first instinct upon hearing that you’re going to be coxing a bowloader is “#?@$!,” this episode is here to help. We talk about what makes communication in this boat type different from in a stern-loaded boat, and discuss how to develop the almighty “boat feel.” Connect with us on our website at https://www.CoxPod.com, on our Slack channel, or on social media.

005 | Interview with Kayleigh Durm - author of "Ready all, row" blog
The prolific author of the “Ready all, row” blog joins us for a conversation about how coxswains can improve their skills, why coaches should coach their coxswains, and other topics relevant to the “oar-less” rower. We’re grateful that a visionary colleague in the coxswain content world is our first guest. Connect with us on our website at https://www.CoxPod.com, on our Slack channel, or on social media.

004 | Bowloaders: Safety & Comfort
We’ve fondly dubbed this episode “Into the Belly of the Beast”—listen in to find out why!

003 | The Coxswain's Personality
It’s time to delve into the nooks and crannies of our personalities. We all have strengths, weaknesses, and personality styles that deeply affect how we interact with the world. This includes our roles as coxswains. We’re NOT all the same, and many of us don’t fit the stereotypical cox description. Take your own personality test and think about how you can use this information to be more effective as a coxswain.

002 | The Elephant in the Room
It’s 2020 and the world is coping with COVID-19. The pandemic has shut down most sweep programs. Let’s talk about some concrete ideas designed to help us get through this time and improve ourselves even when we can’t be in the seat.
