It's interesting to note that these bike recordings are totally unscripted.  While I'm going through my morning routine I spare a moment or two to think of a starting point, but that's it.  It takes a lot of time to read up on and experiment with the concepts covered.  This process allows the material to sink in properly and, with the practice from years of teaching, communicate the ideas off the top of my head.

I think the pace is easier to follow when I have to slow down and think about the words a little more carefully.
