How the failure of the Suez Canal could change the overall shipping
AM: In fact.
MC: Excellent. So you can all expect that. You can also look forward to the recommendations we will make after this break.
MC: Okay. Welcome. This is the last part of our show. There, we ask guests and hosts to recommend something to listen to, enjoy, consume. You are our guest on the air, go first, tell us your recommendation.
AM: Okay. This time I have a product. I feel like every time I come here I say something vague, like spring cleaning, like walking.
LG: It must be a Washington DC thing, because Gilad does the same thing when he joins us.
AM: It’s horrible. I have a laptop that I have used, I call it a Moft laptop that sticks to the bottom of the laptop and it is only three ounces, so it is very light. I was visiting embedded parents for a few days, for the first time in a long time, and I brought a laptop to work with and I felt like I could keep my position in the post, I really appreciated it and it’s not all heavy. That is my recommendation.
LG: How tall is he? How much momentum does it give to the machine?
AM: Well, I’m looking at it right now and I’m horrible at calculating those things, but it’s probably five inches.
LG: Oh, yes. Look at that. It’s pretty stylish. Right now I’m looking at a picture on the internet.
AM: Yes. I like it.
LG: It’s pretty stylish and looks like it would be easy to pack. It’s basically like the smart stand you get with your iPad, Mike-
LG: … a smart cover, it looks like a version of it, but for your MacBook.
AM: Yes. And he lives at the bottom of my laptop now.
MC: Very cool.
LG: Nice for sure.
MC: Gets a complete one.
LG: It’s wonderful.
MC: Lauren, what’s your recommendation?
LG: My recommendation is spring cleaning.
MC: Five stars.
LG: Five stars. No. OK. So on my recommendation, I have to warn you, I’m not making any commitments here, but I started using the Peloton marathon training program. Some of you may know that some of us at WIRED are users of Peloton. Actually, I just made a video about it on the net, on Twitter. So go to WIRED’s Twitter account, and you can find that video. But you don’t have to have a Peloton tape or bike to use the mobile app and so the mobile apps, there are different workouts and there are programs and one of the programs is the path to 26.2, the break is divided into two parts. It is actually designed for the first runners of the marathon. I’ve never run a marathon, I’ve run half marathons and every time I finish a half marathon, I tell myself, I don’t think I can do that twice in a row. So it would be a great thing if I did that, but I’ve started using the marathon training app for fun and so far I’m enjoying it.
MC: Pretty. When will your first marathon be then?
MC: A public statement of intent is very important.
LG: I think if I did that, it would probably be in the fall, like in the fall in San Francisco …
