Callum Pettit’s early life was spent in the shadows of his little brother’s pro ski career.  While the brothers were a package deal for sponsors, Sean Pettit was the draw.  Eventually, Cal and Sean’s sponsorship paths went separate ways, which left Cal figuring out what was next.....Which was new sponsors and a blue collar career compared to Sean’s white collar lifestyle.  Throughout it all, there was never any drama between Cal and Sean and it’s cool to hear the story from both sides.  This podcast is Cal’s version.

Robin Van Gyn has been a pro snowboarder for over a decade.  She didn’t get on a snowboard until she was 16 and it was full speed ahead from there.  From riding the Olympic Park in college to graduating to Backcountry riding, Robin is one of those people that bring an attitude that’s always fun.  She’s one of those rare people that raises the stoke level every time.  On the podcast we talk a lot about gender, inclusion, and what it took to make it.  Hana Beaman takes care of the Inappropriate Questions
