    EP100: Ski Talk with Dad

    EP100: Ski Talk with Dad

    Welcome to the 100th episode of The Water Ski Podcast.

    Originally recorded on February 9th, 2023, this is an interview with Fedele Luzzeri, my father.
    After an initial attempt of recording this in April 2022, we decided to give it another go in 2023. The challenges of translating the subtitles to English in order for skiers around the world to enjoy was marginally made easier by AI. The rest was just multiple listens and work.
    Dad's story into water skiing mostly follows a chronological order that listeners of The Water Ski Podcast are accustomed with, starting with the usual "How did you get into water skiing?" question.

    I hope you all enjoy as much as dad and I had a good time recording this.

    This episode originally premiered live on YouTube on December 15th, 2023. If your podcast provider does not show video with English subtitles, you can head over on YouTube and watch there.

    Epilogue

    Epilogue

    Welcome to the one before last episode of The Water Ski Podcast.

    In this episode I announce the termination of this long standing project after EP100, which is scheduled to be released on May 18th, 2023. This episode was recorded in February and it will feature Fedele Luzzeri, my dad. Given that dad does not speak English, we recorded video and it will be subtitled. Audio and video will be also published on podcast, but some platform may not show the video. Therefore, the easiest way to watch this final episode is through the YouTube channel. I'd suggest to subscribe in order to receive the notifications of when the episode will premiere.

    As I said in the episode, this was a great experience. Thank you to all the listeners, guests, supporters, sponsors, and everyone whom I got to meet and talk to thanks to TWSP.

    Ski Hard!

Topic suggestion

I love this Poscast! Thank you for taking action to grow our sport! As an avid competitive skier, the info for on and off the water is great! Would love a discussion about nutrition and recovery. What foods enable optimal performance, what to eat before and after etc.

Great water ski interviews!

As someone who grew up water skiing I really enjoy listening to these podcasts that are the most interesting and influential people in the sport. I still water ski almost everyday in the spring, summer, and fall - and my kids are now hooked on the sport too. Both kids ski for their collegiate team. Thanks for proving this great content!
