I agree with overedge. I don't think TSL has done more than add to the conversation. It's a nice addition.
The piece is seventy-five minutes long...[l]ong enough for an idea to be developed, but not so long that one starts to measure the number of seats to the exits with desperation if the thing doesn’t work" -- Marina Harss
Hi TSL! Thanks for posting. I appreciate that you read the feedback and took time to give us a response. Your videos and interviews obviously take a HUGE amount of research and prep. Thank you so much for making them. You ask great questions and achieve a good balance of being candid/ approachable yet professional. I look forward to your future interviews and other videos. Thanks again for contributing such great work to the skating community.
I think it's time that I did a podcast. Of course there will be no talking. It will just be an hour of them staring into the camera.
I am very impressed with Adam, he seems to be in such a great place at this early point in the season, he's confident and sure, likes both his programs, loves his coach and choreographers, is thrilled to have Ashley with him, and is healthy.
Nobody in this interview mentioned a quad, did they?
Glad Adam is confident, but he really has zero chance of making the Olys without one. Maybe he's got one now and didn't want to jinx himself by talking about it.

Surprising they were so consumed with the 3a problems they never got to his quad lutz attempts!
Thanks Jenny and Dave. I probably have posted some critiques of TSL here on occasion (hopefully more constructive than picky ). I admire you both for having the idea and bringing it to fruition, and thus adding to the conversation. Great addition, and there's certainly room for more conversations and indeed plenty of room for more, better and wider coverage of figure skating in the USA! Re all the critiques, nobody's perfect and as the saying goes (from Abraham Lincoln btw): "You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time.” Interviewing is not as easy as some people who've never done it might think it is. All in all, TSL provides a great service to figure skating. I especially enjoyed the recent interviews with a sports psychologist, and a nutritionist.
Also, you guys rocked your TSL interviews with each other. Quite hilarious and informative at the same time. Stay real and continue telling it like you see it.
He's a total doll. Consider me a (new) fan.
I bet Ashley and Adam are a pair of scallywags together. Working under Arturian might do them both some good.
Adam came across as thoughtful and articulate. I can't wait or Ashley's turn!!

Dave has admitted here that while he was "at work," you know, getting PAID BY SOMEONE TO DO A JOB, he was, "listening to podcasts..."
This speaks VOLUMES as to the type of person he is ...... rip-off your employer by faking to work while listening to podcasts....
hmmm, back in the day before digital TV, I would listen to my soaps on a radio that received TV sound while I was at work. Wanting to be in the lab w/ my testing ready to go before my soap started actually made me more productive at work because I didn't 'slack' in getting started. Some people are capable of doing two things at once.
eta: we don't know what Dave's job is (if we do I missed it) so we don't know if he's doing brain surgery while listening to podcasts (altho surgeons do listen to music & I imagine now, podcasts too during surgery) or if he's doing mindless work that actually benefits from having something to listen to in order to keep the brain engaged during said mindless duties. hmmmph. *gets off soapbox*
