Today I’m joined by Bruce Smith. 


Bruce is the CEO of Hydrow. 


In today’s episode, we talked about Bruce’s goal to make rowing more accessible, Hydrow’s place in the connected fitness landscape, and how the company could use augmented reality to create at-home experiences like rock climbing. 


I had a great time chatting with Bruce and hope you enjoy listening.
