SWAT-on-tape?

Just curious if something like this would be feasible/profitable? I spend a lot of time on the road and have a very hard time watching dvd's while doing 55mph down the interstate.

Most everybody tunes in the radio or plugs in a cd or does something to make time go faster, and I was wondering if it would be possible to get trainers on tape, so to speak. Obviously, you would be limited to topics that don't require illustration, but mindset is all mental and would seem easily discussed via a CD.

From my own personal experience, the best part of any class I've attended has been the dialogue with the instructors. Shooting's great fun, sure, but listening to the learned words of one who has done great things with their life really makes my day.

Am I the only one that would like to listen to Jeff Gonzales talk about whatever, quickly followed by Lou Awerbuck doing his thing? Would a mindset refresher be helpful as you negotiate the highways and biways?

Is it feasible? Anyone else keen on the idea?

You might not always be able to get the actual trainers on tape. I'll audition for being one of the audio readers, though.

Good idea, but I doubt it'll ever happen.

Could be a "fan project."
