Why is Broken Oars Podcast the world's best rowing podcast (Crossy's Corner excepted ...)?

 

Because no other podcast can move from grumping to an analysis of the status statement piece that is the Skillrow to the emancipation of rowers in the South East of England to the Wombles to the Second World War and escapism for wounded minds with such grace, elan and diablerie.

Your Northern correspondent returns with the third and final chapter (and last word on rowing technique and rowing well). What some are calling a work of timeless genius, others are calling how you move a boat and yet more are calling what happens when you let a Northerner on the mic without the calming presence of a Southern Overlord, this is the third instalment of the original two-part series.

Ladies and Gentleman,

 

When we're in the presence of greatness, we sometimes do one sentence introductions, like this:

 

Harry Brightmore - World Champion, GB Men's Eight.

 

And to be honest, we could leave it there and we'd be justified in doing so.

 

But we can't, and it isn't just because the Northern One who writes our episode descriptions has a tendency towards sesquipedalian logorrhea (Leave him alone! He's bought these word...

Usually Broken Oars Podcast returns with a spring in its step and a song in its heart - we love doing this podcast, because we get to do what every rower everywhere does when they're in the company of another rower: talk about rowing, and rowers, and water, and boats, and training, and racing, and cake, and seals, and otters, and ... when we were at Agecroft ...

 

When we were in the war ...

Broken Oars Podcast is, for all of the back-and-forth of Lewin and I about North and South, fundamentally apolitical.

 

You row, we row, we all row together.

 

We take and give ribs and jibes in good heart because we believe that the things that unite us as friends, and in a wider context, as people, as communities and as a country number far more than any differences we may have.

 

We believe in discussion, in compromise, in agree...

Your dynamic duo return with an episode heralding the new season. Lewin (The Southern One) talks about the David Villers memorial 2k, letting slip that he at 46 can come within one second of what Aaron (The Northern One) could do at 36 - damn his freakishly freakish genetics. We talk of salmons and seals, establishing that not only was Henry Williamson a Fascist, but he knew nothing of the salmon Jurgen Grobler lurking off Tynemo...

For your delight and delectation, the Northern One of Broken Oars Podcast offers a from the ground-up look at the basics and essentials of moving a boat well.

We return with a quick one after the wonder and glory that was Small Ergs, Big Dreams.

 

Did you really think that we'd quit?

 

We're rowers. The word 'quit' is not in our dictionary. In fact, owing to a tragic accident any words between 'twizzle' and 'zygotic' are not in either of our dictionaries. We possess, in fact, highly selective dictionaries.

 

In this episode, Lewin takes the coastal shilling and argues that going nautical...

It's fitting as we approach the summer blockbuster season that we return with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) vs. Pete. We only know one Pete, and that's the inimitable, the incredible Pete Brewer - a man among men and a God among coaches.
